Scripture for the week of November 13, 2022
By JoBeth Kested
Remember the former things, those of long ago; I am God, and there is no other; I am God, and there is none like me. Isaiah 46:9 NIV
Have you heard the saying, “You can’t know where you are going unless you know where you came from?” God instructs us in this scripture of the importance to remember the former things; twice declaring that He alone is God and there is none like Him! It is so helpful to recall the stories of faith from those that have gone before us, overcoming great trials, devastating disasters and horrible wars. In the midst of our current busyness and distractions, have we forgotten answered prayers and miracles we’ve experienced or learned about in the past that can inspire our faith to trust God for our needs today? Let us remember there is no other God whose very nature of love, extends mercy, offers peace, forgives sin, heals diseases, saves the lost, wipes away all our tears and knows the number of hairs on our heads! He is the King of Kings, Lord of Lords, Commander of the Angel armies and yet, is also our loving Heavenly Father. There is no other God like our God! Amen!
