{SCRLLC14} Scripture Lesson #14, You Are God Alone

This week I have really needed to worship God for who He is. This song says it all. Listen and read the lyrics by clicking here. Then let's look at some of the verses from this song and read scripture and application to our lives.

Song Verse: "You are not a God created by human hands."

Genesis 1:1 "In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth."

Application: He was there in the beginning. Everything has a beginning and an end. But our God has no beginning or end. He is infinite. He is not limited by time or place, and He has worked and will continue to work His good purpose through the ages. He has control over everything though we still have free will, and we are responsible for the choices we make.

J. I. Packer said “Created things have a beginning and an ending, but not so their Creator. The answer to the child’s question ‘Who made God?’ is simply that God did not need to be made, for He was always there. He exists forever, and He is always the same.

*********************************

Song Verse: "You are not a God in need of anything we can give."

Romans 8:32He who did not spare His own Son, but gave Him up for us all—how will He not also, along with Him, graciously give us all things?

Philippians 4:19 "And my God will meet all your needs according to the riches of His glory in Christ Jesus."

Application: We cannot give Him anything. He has no needs, and He does not need our help though at times I think He needs my help. How about you? He gives us everything including giving us His own Son so that we might have eternal life with Him. We should be looking to God and trusting Him for His provision. He not only provides the physical things but He also provides for our emotional and spiritual needs too.

*********************************

Song Verse: "By Your plan that just the way it is."

Psalm 40:5 "Many, Lord my God, are the wonders You have done, the things You planned for us. None can compare with You; were I to speak and tell of Your deeds, they would be too many to declare."

Application: His plans and ways are perfect. We can choose to follow His ways or we can choose to ignore them but we must remember that we will pay the consequences for going our own way. But when we follow His plan for our lives, the blessings are too many to count!

*********************************

Song Verse: "You were on Your throne." "You're the only God whose power, none can contend."

Psalm 47:8 "God reigns over the nations; God is seated on His holy throne."

1 Chronicles 29:11-12 "Yours, Lord, is the greatness and the power and the glory and the majesty and the splendor, for everything in heaven and earth is Yours. Yours, Lord, is the kingdom; You are exalted as head over all. Wealth and honor come from You; You are the ruler of all things. In Your hands are strength and power to exalt and give strength to all."

Application: Everything in heaven and on earth are His, and He reigns over all. Do you live as though God is the King of your life? Does your attitude reflect that you belong to His Kingdom? We are to allow Him to extend His Kingdom through us instead of being caught up in self. And in today’s world, selfishness seems to reign. Will you allow His power to work through your daily life this week?

*********************************

Song Verse: "You are God alone Unchangeable"

1 Samuel 15:29He who is the Glory of Israel does not lie or change His mind; for He is not a man, that He should change His mind.

Malachi 3:6I the LORD do not change.

Psalm 102:27 “. . .You remain the same and Your years will never end.

Application: It is important to remember that while we are to change and grow in Him, our God does not change, and He does not change His mind.  We can rest in Him knowing that nothing about Him ever changes.

For my 6x6 page today, I used the Psalm 102:27 verse from above. I also used the new Blue Fern Studios Birds on a Wire chipboard. My page seems a little plain to me today but I decided to quit playing with it so I could get it posted for you. LOL! I hope you find some inspiration anyway.

Blessings to you Patter, you have introduced me to another song I had never heard before. I do like your artwork - I like all the stitching and as a bird lover I like the little birds.
