God Says He Is....

In Isaiah 45:18-25 God says He is the Creator of heavens and earth; the LORD and there is none else; a righteous God and Savior; the only God. (NIV)

In Exodus 34:6-7 God says He is "The Lord! the Lord! a God merciful and gracious, slow to anger, and abundant in loving-kindness and truth,Keeping mercy and loving-kindness for thousands, forgiving iniquity and transgression and sin." (Amp)

In Isaiah 54:5 God says He is "your Maker —His name is Yahweh of Hosts—and the Holy One of Israel is your Redeemer; He is called the God of all the earth."

In Psalm 77:14 God tells us He is "a God who performs miracles," and that He "displays His power among the peoples."

Dear Heavenly Father,
Be this God in my mind. Expand the limits of my thinking. Give me the faith to absorb as much of Who You say You are as I can stand. Forgive me for shrinking You in my mind, for not feeding on Who my God is when I'm facing problems. I've focused more on them than on my God! Reveal Yourself, O Lord, in the midst of my life. Rise above my problems showing Yourself to be indomitable! In the blessed name of Jesus. Amen.
