How do you see the God of the universe? Is He personal or impersonal in your life? The Bible is filled with proclamations of those to whom God is personal. I have chosen a few testimonies in today’s blog to whet your appetite for what you can find in The Book!
Abraham, Isaac and Jacob knew God personally. God guided, delivered and literally wrestled with Jacob. David depended upon God and tells us in 2 Samuel 22:7 that He call upon God personally, “In my distress I called upon the Lord; to my God I called.
From his temple he heard my voice, and my cry came to his ears.” In Psalm 31:14 David makes a bold proclamation: But I trust in you, O Lord; I say, “You are my God.” The list of those who called God their God continues with Nehemiah, Isaiah, and all the Old Testament prophets. Daniel states in Daniel 9:4 about his own experience with God, “ I prayed to the Lord my God and made confession, saying, “O Lord, the great and awesome God, who keeps covenant and steadfast love with those who love him and keep his commandments,” Mary proclaims in Luke 1:47, “and my spirit rejoices in God my Savior,” Thomas declares in John 20:28, “Thomas answered him, “My Lord and my God!” when he touched the hands of the risen Jesus. and Paul in 1 Corinthians 1:4 states, “I give thanks to my God always for you because of the grace of God that was given you in Christ Jesus.“
What is your statement about God? Is He personal to you? Can or do you call Him, My God? Knowing Jesus personally is what faith involves. Our relationship with the Almighty God is one on one. He is there for me, knows my ways. He even knows the number of hairs on my head as Jesus said in Luke 12:7 “Why, even the hairs of your head are all numbered. Fear not; you are of more value than many sparrows.” He knows me intimately and desires good things for me and desires that I grow in good character as I walk with Him daily.
Will you step out in faith today and call Him, My God? If you do, He will meet you there and walk beside you each day bringing comfort, joy, growth and well being to your hungry soul. Invite Him today, just say, Come in Lord Jesus and be with me. He will answer.
