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!!
