Jesus promised us He would never leave us (Matt. 28:19-20).  That means He is present with you now.  Is your heart prepared to hear from Him?  Take a moment to prepare your heart to hear from Him then read the passage below. 

 

“I am the Lord; there is no other God.” — Isaiah 45:5

 

Have we allowed our view of God to be “squeezed” by the world around us?  In my dealings with people, I think the answer is a resounding YES!   More and more these days, I am seeing what I call a “buffet” view of God.  We take a little piece of God from this religion and add a little of this one from another religion. What we end up with is a “god” that looks a lot like us.  He agrees with us on EVERYTHING. He’s passionate about the things we’re passionate about. He hates all the people we hate and he even voted for the person we voted for!  As the old saying goes, “God created man in his own image.  And man, being a gentleman, returned the favor.” — Jean-Jacques Rousseau

 

As you look at your life right now, have you tried to make God fit into YOUR “mold”?  Have you tried to shape Him into what you want Him to be? 

 

 What do you sense your Heavenly Father speaking to you?  How is He calling you to respond?
