GOD IS! ... AM I?
"...God is with thee in all that thou doest:"(Genesis 21:22)
Am I with God in all that I do? Am I following His leading and not my own? Am I in His perfect will for me or do I have my own plans? Who is really in charge of my life?
"...God is come to prove you, and that his fear may be before your faces, that ye sin not."(Exodus 20:20)
Am I proving God? Am I taking him at His Word? Am I claiming the promises that He gives me in the Bible? Am I living the life that He wants me to live?
"...God is in all things that we call upon him for:"(Deuteronomy 4:7)
Am I in everything that God wants me to be in? Am I faithful in my church attendance, in my prayer life, in soul-winning and witnessing? Will He bless me if I am not? Should He?
"...God is a consuming fire:"(Deuteronomy 4:24)
Am I a consuming fire? Have I gotten rid of all the things in my life that are displeasing to God? Have I burned up all the dross? Have I turned my back on all the sin and worldly pleasures that God hates so much?
"...God is a merciful God:"(Deuteronomy 4:31)
Am I merciful with others? Can I forgive and forget or just forgive?
"...God is a jealous God:"(Deuteronomy 6:15)
Am I jealous for the things of God or the things of the world? God wants all of me. Does He truly have it? Is there any part of me that I am still holding on to? Can God use me fully if I am not fully surrendered to Him?
"...God is God of gods:"(Deuteronomy 10:17)
Am I sure? Or is my "god" money, fame, status, position, a better job, the "boob-tube", a bigger home, a new car, clothes, etc.
"...God is he that goeth with you, to fight for you against your enemies, to save you."(Deuteronomy 20:4)
Am I allowing God to fight my battles or do I seek my own revenge? Will I continue to hold a grudge long after I have been asked to forgive?
"...God is in the generation of the righteous."(Psalms 14:5)
Am I teaching my children to know, love and serve God with all their heart, soul and mind? What kind of example am I being for my children? Do I practice what I preach?
"...God is no respecter of persons:"(Acts 10:34)
Am I able to love the unlovable? Do I care that they are lost and on their way to hell? Am I able to accept others into my "inner" circle of friends or do I resent the intrusion?
"...God is not the author of confusion:"(1 Corinthians 14:33)
Am I living a life full of double standards? Do I look, dress, talk and act one way in front of lost people and another way in front of my pastor and the church folks? Who do I think I am fooling? GOD??
"...God is light:"(1 John 1:5)
Am I light in this world of sin and darkness? Am I the light of the world? Does my light so shine before men that my God may be glorified?
God IS! Am I? Are you?
