5 I am the LORD, and there is no other;
apart from me there is no God.
I will strengthen you,
though you have not acknowledged me,
6 so that from the rising of the sun
to the place of its setting
men may know there is none besides me.
I am the LORD, and there is no other.
7 I form the light and create darkness,
I bring prosperity and create disaster;
I, the LORD, do all these things.
These words were to Cyrus when God summoned him, a pagan king, to do His bidding. He is the Lord and there is no other! He can do whatever He wants. Who else can form light and create darkness? Amazing! He brings prosperity and creates disaster. He can easily move the heart of a king who has never acknowledged Him as God.
A significant part of faith is believing that God is in control of all things. I believe He exists, but faith also believes that He has my best interest at heart. I trust Him.
“Does the clay say to the potter, ‘What are you making?’” (vs. 9)
He is the Lord and there is no other.
Heavenly Father, You alone are God. You alone are good. You alone are Savior. You are the only one I need; I bow all of me at Your feet. I worship You alone. You have given me more than I could ever have wanted and I want to give you my heart and my soul. There is none like You! I worship You today.
