One True God

"...Dagon had fallen with his face to the ground in front of the Ark of the LORD!  So they set the idol up again.  But the next morning the same thing happened - the idol had fallen face down before the LORD again..." (1 Samuel 5:3-4).

How awesome is the Lord, our God! There's a lot of things you can do to God.  You can reject Him, betray Him, disappoint Him, lie to Him, disobey Him, and refuse Him.  But, You can't take the LORD God Almighty as a captive prisoner.  He came to serve, but He is no man's salve or hostage.  When put in the same vicinity with another "god," the false idol was brought down to it's knees in submission.  To rise again was to be brought down again.

One thing we can be very sure of, is that one day every knee will bow and that every tongue will confess that Jesus Christ is Lord of all!  We have a choice.  We can either bow down now when it's our choice, or we can bow down later when it's too late.  But either way, bow later or bow now, we're going to bow!  He IS the ONE TRUE GOD!  It's our choice and opportunity now, today even, to bow down before Him, and declare Him to be the Lord of our lives.

For more, I choose not to have to be humbled, because I choose to submit myself to the One who is capable to understand what I cannot and to do what I cannot.  He is Lord!  I don't have to have it all figured out.  There are so many things that render me confused and clueless.  But one thing I know, He is faithful.  He has been and is today my rock, my peace, and my trust.  Nothing will stand against that!
