Think About This: “Experiencing true contentment has everything to do with what you truly desire. If you follow your heart, that’s a recipe for destruction. Your heart is deceitful and sick (Jeremiah 17:9).” ― Marcus Hall

But as for me, I trust in You, O LORD; I say, “You are my God.” (Psalm 31:14)
My God. Those two simple words are strikingly profound. Meditating on them almost creates a conflict in our minds.
God, Creator, Sustainer of all things. He is all mighty and powerful. He is all knowing and all wise. He is equally everywhere all the time. He is Alpha and Omega, Beginning and End. He is the Great I AM. He is our environment. In Him we live and breathe and have our being. He is the giver and taker of life. He is sovereignly in control of all things. He is the redeemer of His people. He calls the stars into place each by name. He is love and truth. He is Holy and pure. He is righteous and just. There is none like Him, there is no other.
To say He is my God, takes all those things and more that faintly describe the One True God and says He is not just a God, nor that He is the God, nor that He is God, but that He is MY God, personally and intimately known by my finite heart and mind.
Meditate on this simple thought today — MY GOD — and feel your heart swell with the reality of this truth. Hallelujah!!

This Week’s Verse to Memorize: “Therefore we also, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which so easily ensnares us, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us, 2 looking unto Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith, who for the joy that was set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.” Hebrews 12:1-2
