Emile Calliet, in Alone at High Noon, wrote, “He who consciously or unconsciously has chosen to ignore God is an orphan in the universe…”
For the past three weeks, we have recognized many of God’s qualities from A-Z. Today, let’s reflect on four more.
Refuge. “the Lord also will be a refuge for the oppressed. A refuge in times of trouble. And those who know your name will put their trust in You; for You, Lord, have not forsaken those who seek you.”– Ps. 9:9,10 (NKJV)
Sovereign. “Who told this long ago? Who declared it of old? Was it now I, the Lord? There is no other god besides me, a righteous God and a Savior; there is no one besides me. Turn to me and be saved, all the ends of the earth! For I am God, and there is no other.” —Isa. 45:21-22, NRSV
True. “All your words are true; all your righteous laws are eternal.” —Ps 119:160, (NIV)
Near. “The Lord is near to all who call upon him, to all who call upon him in truth.”– Ps 145:18 (NKJV)
Don’t be alone in the universe. Believe in and embrace the God of the Bible. He indeed is an awesome God!
