Plea for Grace

God is God

Posted on: March 12, 2009

Deuteronomy 7:9 “Know therefore that the LORD your God is God; he is the faithful God, keeping his covenant of love to a thousand generations of those who love him and keep his commands.”

God is God.  That’s a statement, not a proposal or a question.  It is a known fact.  So, what do I do with that fact?

He is faithful; He keeps His covenant of love. . .

Here is my part; I must not only acknowledge God as God (the known fact that is whether or not I agree with it) but then love Him and keep His commands.  Not because I am trying to win His approval (I already have it see Ephesians 1) but because He is faithful, and His covenant of love is a promise for my best and for my good.

Why would I want anything else?  God is God.  Knowing Him is the key to life. Obeying Him is the key to peace.  His faithfulness extends to generations.  That’s the way to leave a legacy — to be known as a woman who knows her God, and who obeys what He says.

I want that.

I want to know what you think!
