Yahweh, Day 149



 
Day 149, Yahweh: The Name... Sovereign Of Time
"I am Yahweh, that is My name; I will not give My glory to another, or My praise to idols."
Isaiah 42:8 (Holman Christian Standard Bible)
Now we move into this aspect of God's very character of not just majesty ... but now we will see and understand His ... sovereignty ... not simply over the majesty of creation as it's creator ... but sovereign over creation and man's …destiny.
For the next several days we will study these first 8 verses as Yahweh reveals these intimate truths ... of Himself ... for all to behold.
This is in The Name.

“After you’ve heard two eyewitness accounts of an auto accident, you begin to worry about history” (unknown).
In the Bible, we are given four eyewitness accounts of Jesus’ walk on earth. Each account verifies a special relationship with Jesus and His disciples.  In John 20:28 Thomas makes this confession: “My Lord and my God.”   Then Jesus thinking about us says, “Thomas, because thou hast seen me, thou hast believed: blessed are they that have not seen, and yet have believed.” 
Because of faithful witnesses, we, too, can make that same confession: "My Lord and My God."
God, thank You for dedicated witnesses testifying that we might know of You.  Amen.

   Today's Cherished Nugget from guest blogger, Pastor Bill.
“There is no greater sign of a general decay of virtue in a nation, than a want of zeal in its inhabitants for the good of their country” (Joseph Addison).
I am afraid as a country we have reached that place. Instead of being excited for what we can do for our country, we have raised a country of dependents whose zeal is for “What can I get for me?” This zeal is primarily the result of our having lost sight of who God is and having elevated men to the level of deities.  If we are again to be a nation under God, we must dethrone self and restore God to His rightful place.
The writer of Deuteronomy 10:20 says, “Thou shalt fear the LORD thy God; him shalt thou serve, and to him shalt thou cleave, and swear by his name.”
God, let us return to being a nation that honors You as Lord. Amen.

Yahweh, Day 148



 
Day 148, Yahweh: The Consequence On Our Part
"Do you not know? Have you not heard? Yahweh is the everlasting God, the Creator of the whole earth."
Isaiah 40:27-30 (Holman Christian Standard Bible)
We've looked for the last several days at the awesome presentation of Yahweh in Isaiah 40 ... now ... the application.
"He gives strength to the weary and strengthens the powerless. Youths may faint and grow weary, and young men stumble and fall, but those who trust in the Lord will renew their strength; they will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary; they will walk and not faint." Isaiah 40:29-31 (HCSB)
1) To “soar on eagles wings” is our devoted personal and corporate worship.
2) Our “run” is the ministry that God has called us each one to.
3) Our “walk” is our day to day lives, family/occupation/community. 
As we dedicate ourselves to each part … not neglecting any one of the other parts … that is where God renews.
This is in The Name.
Intercessory Prayer:  Oh Father!  You have gifted us each one, to thrive in each of these 3 areas of life.  Grant us grace to recognize the significance of each area … and the determination to not neglect any one area for the other area … that we might be the whole person You have formed us to be … for the glory of Your Name.  In Jesus Name.  Amen.

 "You don't learn to praise in a day, especially since you may have been complaining for years! New habits take time to develop. But you can begin today, and practice tomorrow, and the next day, until it becomes part of you" (Erwin W. Lutzer).
No one told us to complain, but we see many have learned to weave great tapestries with their complaints, yet they have trouble learning how to praise The Creator of the universe.
In keeping with our tapestry weaving times, let us remember and follow the advice of the writer of Psalms 33:1: "Rejoice in the LORD, O ye righteous: for praise is comely for the upright."
God, let me learn to praise You with all that I am. Amen.
