We live in a time and culture where there is great confusion related to truth, appropriate conduct, and spirituality. The Bible is now considered a threat by many and Christians are cast in a light where we are the problem in our nation.
In the spiritual chaos of our time, it seems a lot like what it must have been like during the time of the Judges. The summary of that time was “everyone did what was right in his own eyes” (Judg. 17:6). Everyone lived by what they felt was best for them instead of by the absolute truth of God’s Word and under his leadership.
A verse that impressed me today because of these observations is Jer. 10:10a which says,
“But the LORD is the true God;
he is the living God and the everlasting King…”
At the time of Jeremiah’s writing, there were many “gods.” The problem is that they were all created by man! Jeremiah is reminding his readers that In contrast to those created idols, we serve THE TRUE God, THE LIVING God and THE EVERLASTING God. Our God is THE one and only God.
Father, it is a comforting reminder to call to mind who you are! You are the true God because you are the truth! You are the living God and all life comes from you. You are the eternal God who always has been and always will be. Thank you for your greatness and for your desire to have a relationship with me!
Following Jesus with you,
