Sunday, October 15, 2006

How great you are, O Sovereign Lord! There is no one like you, and there is no God but you, as we have heard with our own ears.
— 2 Samuel 7:22

Thoughts on Today's Verse...

"I am Yahweh, who saved you out of Egypt. You must never have any other god, but me!" The Lord God Almighty at the beginning of the Ten Commandments reminded us of this central, seminal, and consummate truth. What else is there to say?

My Prayer...

Holy, Righteous, and Only Living God, I hold you in the highest place in my heart. Forgive me when I do not hold you in the highest place in my life. Empower me with your Holy Spirit to give up all the little things that distract my allegiance to you and interfere with you being the Supreme and Sovereign God in my day to day life. In Jesus' name. Amen.
