There really is no other god than God. He is the I Am, the First and the Last, the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, David’s God. And he is my God. I love him. He rescues me from this world’s trials. He shows me the way through the darkness. He has given for me his most precious son Jesus as a sacrifice so that I may live. I cannot fathom a moment without having him in my life. He is my joy, my comfort and my every desire.
I try so hard to do his will, but so many times, I fall short. I read how the apostle Paul grappled with the very same thing (Romans 7:19). I do the things I do not want to do and the things I want to do I do not do. Oh, wretched man that I am. How is it that I have his spirit living in me and I hurt inside for seeing sin that lives in me? How can I live one life while I live another? Why do I have to have this warfare tearing me up inside?
Then I think how wonderful it is to have his spirit living in me, that I can see sin clearly living in me, to recognize it, and to hate it for what it is, instead of walking aimlessly in darkness to the beat of the world’s drum.
Oh, how beautiful it is to know I am no longer in bondage, no longer in fear, no longer with regrets, to know God intimately with absolute pleasure and being satisfied with him always.
He is God. There is no other god besides him. All other gods are dust. They cannot hear, see, talk, smell, or taste. They are rot. God is the awesome God. He hears my cries in the night when I need encouragement. He sees my hands extended to the sky for him when I worship him with all my might. He talks to me through the bible, showing me the way to go. He smells my sincere offerings and tastes my love for him through my deeds, which honor him.
My God, the God, is real. And I love him.

Jesus didn’t come for the righteous, He came for sinners. His word says to be merciful to one another as He is merciful to us. Be encouraged 🙏🏼❤️
Absolutely, and thanks!
Wow! what expressiveness, and what a tribute to the grace and mercy of our God!
Yes, we are no longer in bondage like you so aptly said. I have been reflecting on God’s spiritual redemption and what it means for me as a believer. Redemption means to make whole. God forgives, God saves, God loves, and God heals to redeem us. 🙂 Your post help expand these ponderings of mine. So thank you. 🙂
Thanks for your kindness. I appreciate it!
No problem! 😀 Take care now.
Amen! Great word! God is amazing!
Thanks Tom! God really is amazing!
Dude. This was awesome!!! 👍👊💥
As much as I appreciate the passion and poetry of this piece, as an atheist I feel obliged to let you know that in my opinion (for now, and until I encounter the sort of evidence that could change my mind) this god of yours is just a very pleasant dream. Other than that, I loved this post! 🙂
Thanks, I appreciate your comment!
