I come to you today as a changed man. The words”NO EQUAL” dropped in my spirit. The Lord has been dealing with my spirit deeply for the last few days about REAL LIFE. I don’t know about anyone else but the Lord had me in a place so that HE COULD WRECK ME AND EMPTY MY CLOSET, You know that stuff that we hide when we put on our church face and become holier than thou. I was stripped bare and forgiven for my closet issues. So I come to you today with an empty closet and a renewed sense of focus on ministry. Stay tuned, the best is yet to come.

Today’s Prayer

Father, You are willing to accept us just as we are, messed up, our hurts, our guilt, and our sins. You love us just as we are, but You don’t want us to stay that way! When we sincerely confess our sins, help us to accept Your forgiveness, believing it, and forgive ourselves. Repenting means to reverse our direction, doesn’t it? Help us to want to become Your “new creations,” letting Your desires become our desires, and realizing that You want only the best for us. Keep us ever in Your care, and help us to grow in our faith. In Jesus’ name we pray, Amen.

Let’s eat.

The Lord Has No Equal

Isaiah 40:12-31

Who else has held the oceans in his hand? Who has measured off the heavens with his fingers? Who else knows the weight of the earth or has weighed the mountains and hills on a scale? Who is able to advise the Spirit of the Lord? Who knows enough to give him advice or teach him? Has the Lord ever needed anyone’s advice? Does he need instruction about what is good? Did someone teach him what is right or show him the path of justice? No, for all the nations of the world are but a drop in the bucket. They are nothing more than dust on the scales. He picks up the whole earth as though it were a grain of sand. All the wood in Lebanon’s forests and all Lebanon’s animals would not be enough to make a burnt offering worthy of our God. The nations of the world are worth nothing to him. In his eyes they count for less than nothing—mere emptiness and froth. To whom can you compare God? What image can you find to resemble him? Can he be compared to an idol formed in a mold, overlaid with gold, and decorated with silver chains? Or if people are too poor for that, they might at least choose wood that won’t decay and a skilled craftsman to carve an image that won’t fall down! Haven’t you heard? Don’t you understand? Are you deaf to the words of God—the words he gave before the world began? Are you so ignorant? God sits above the circle of the earth. The people below seem like grasshoppers to him! He spreads out the heavens like a curtain and makes his tent from them. He judges the great people of the world and brings them all to nothing. They hardly get started, barely taking root, when he blows on them and they wither. The wind carries them off like chaff. “To whom will you compare me? Who is my equal?” asks the Holy One. Look up into the heavens. Who created all the stars? He brings them out like an army, one after another, calling each by its name. Because of his great power and incomparable strength, not a single one is missing. O Jacob, how can you say the Lord does not see your troubles? O Israel, how can you say God ignores your rights? Have you never heard? Have you never understood? The Lord is the everlasting God, the Creator of all the earth. He never grows weak or weary. No one can measure the depths of his understanding. He gives power to the weak and strength to the powerless. Even youths will become weak and tired, and young men will fall in exhaustion. But those who trust in the Lord will find new strength. They will soar high on wings like eagles. They will run and not grow weary. They will walk and not faint.

Quote of the Day

This is the purpose of pain for the redeemed: it is one of your Father’s ways of speaking to you; it is the evidence of His limitless love, by which He would draw you farther from evil and closer to Him, the divine remedy which can cure you of pride and help you lean more trustingly on the Lord. ~Walter A. Maier~
