Verse of the Day: V5 “I have made the earth, the man and the beast that are upon the ground, by my great power and by my outstretched arm, and have given it unto whom it seemed meet unto me.”
Man thinks he is his own destiny, his own future and leads his own life. However, man fails to realize that there is a Creator who creates the heaven, the universe, the planets, the earth and every living creature in the air, on the ground and in the ocean.
1. God is Creator
V5 “I have made the earth, the man and the beast that are upon the ground, ...”
Prophet Jeremiah warned the people of Judah that God who made the earth, the man and the beast was the same God who set up and destroyed kingdoms, and there was nothing that they could do except to submit to God’s perfect plan and purpose.
V6 “And now have I given all these lands into the hand of Nebuchadnezzar the king of Babylon, my servant; and the beasts of the field have I given him also to serve him.”
2. God is Power
V5 “I have made the earth, the man and the beast that are upon the ground, by my great power and by my outstretched arm, and have given it unto whom it seemed meet unto me.”
However, the people of Judah refused to heed Jeremiah’s warnings and God severely punished them through wars, famine and diseases, and millions died because of their rebellion and disobedience.
V8 “And it shall come to pass, that the nation and kingdom which will not serve the same Nebuchadnezzar the king of Babylon, and that will not put their neck under the yoke of the king of Babylon, that nation will I punish, saith the LORD, with the sword, and with the famine, and with the pestilence, until I have consumed them by his hand.”
3. God is I AM
God is I AM WHO I AM. Whatever, whenever and whoever God determines, it shall be fulfilled and done! No man can stop God’s perfect plan and purpose and even when all things seem doom and gloom, God allows all things for His greater plan and purpose!
Exodus 3:14 “And God said unto Moses. I AM THAT I AM: and He said, Thus shalt thou say unto the children of Israel, I AM hath sent me unto you.”
Prayer of the Week
Dearest God, please help me to submit to You as You are God.
