the God of Re

You are the God of reason.

” ‘Come now, let us reason together,’ says the Lord.  ‘Though your sins are like scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they are red as crimson, they shall be like wool.’ ”  (Isaiah 1:16)

You are the God of remarkable renown.

“I am God, and there is no other; I am God, and there is none like Me.”  (Is.46:9)

“I, even I, am the Lord, and apart from Me there is no savior.”  (Is. 43:11)

You are the God who recognizes my worth as Your creation.  You are the God who reaches down to earth for me.  You are the God who rescues me from myself, from my sin and from my enemies.  You are the God who relentlessly pursues me.  You are the God who receives me just as I am.  You are the God who remembers that I am dust and who remembers my sins no more.  You are the God who removes my heart of stone and replaces it with a heart of flesh.

You are the God who refines me with fire, the God whose glory is reflected in me. You are the God who relents from sending  calamity.  You are the God who remains faithful even when I am unfaithful.  You are the God of  repentance, not of regret.  You are the God of infinite reserves and resources;  the cattle on a thousand hills are Yours and Your supply of grace and mercy never runs out.

You are the God who renews a steadfast spirit within me, the God who restores to me the joy of Your salvation.  You are the God of rest and of renewal, leading me to green pastures and beside still waters; giving me the Sabbath as Holy.

You are the God who reveals Yourself to me in every sunrise and in every sunset and in every syllable of Your Holy Word.  You are the God who redeems my life with Your own blood.  You are the God who reconciles me to Yourself.  You are the God who repairs my brokenness.  You are the God who rejoices over me with singing.  You are the God who wants a relationship with me, You created me for that purpose.

Yes, You, oh Lord are the God of re;  the God of relationship, of repentance, of redemption, of reconciliation, of rejoicing, of renewal, of restoration and of all revelation.  “I make known the end from the beginning, from ancient times, what is still to come.”  (Is. 46:10)

You, oh God, will return for me; to repay, to rescue and to reign forever.  You remain from everlasting to everlasting the same.  You are a remarkable God, there is none like You.

sincerely,      Grace Day
