The Lord IS God!

So remember this and keep it firmly in mind: The Lord is God both in heaven and on earth, and there is no other. Deuteronomy 4:39 (NLT)
There is so much lost by humanity, in so much that there is a complete and utter failure to recognize the Lord for who He is.
Without exception, there isn’t a single thing more pressing that the simple truth that our Lord is God of all things and there is no one besides Him.
When quizzed by the Pharisees in an attempt to trip him up, Jesus underscored the undeniable truth that there is nothing to be held in higher esteem than God.
Jesus replied, “‘You must love the Lord your God with all your heart, all your soul, and all your mind.’ This is the first and greatest commandment. A second is equally important: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ The entire law and all the demands of the prophets are based on these two commandments.” Matthew 22:37-40 (NLT)
Contemplate today this truth of scripture; God is supreme over all, we are to love Him with all our being, because He IS God. He, in His Grace has chosen to love us the unlovable and our greatest service to Him is to love him without reservation in return.
If we can “remember this and keep it firmly in mind”, in our hearts, in every crevice of our lives; our course will not vary from the trajectory He has plotted for us. And if we fail to do this, there is no way we track true to His calling for each of us.
In His Grace!
