The One. The Only.

This summer I decided I would revive and nourish my little back yard lawn.
So every morning I turn on the sprinklers as I read in the back yard.
Birds chirp and whir by.
Occassionally our little bunny hops through the yard.
And my lawn is green and lush.

Today's words of comfort from Isaiah talk about desert, dry ground and water...

Isaiah 44
1 -5 "But for now, dear servant Jacob, listen—
yes, you, Israel, my personal choice. God who made you has something to say to you;
the God who formed you in the womb wants to help you.
Don't be afraid, dear servant Jacob,
Jeshurun, the one I chose.
For I will pour water on the thirsty ground
and send streams coursing through the parched earth.
I will pour my Spirit into your descendants
and my blessing on your children.
They shall sprout like grass on the prairie,
like willows alongside creeks. This one will say, 'I am God's,'
and another will go by the name Jacob;
That one will write on his hand 'God's property'—
and be proud to be called Israel."

No embarassment to be called one of God's own.
Because, who is like God?
There is One.
He is the Only.

6 -8God, King of Israel,
your Redeemer, God-of-the-Angel-Armies, says:
"I'm first, I'm last, and everything in between.
I'm the only God there is.
Who compares with me?
