Psalm 100: verse 3

Psalm 100:3 Know ye that the LORD he is God: it is he that hath made us, and not we ourselves; we are his people, and the sheep of his pasture.

Know that the LORD he is God. The God of the Holy Bible is God and not the false Gods of other supposed holy books, cults, or men’s imagination. The one true God that made the universe is described in the Bible and He is God. Men should not and do not get to construct a God that suits their sinful nature by choosing attributes that meet their carnal needs. He made us and not we ourselves. God not only created the universe, he created everything in it including man. Therefore, we belong to him. He is the potter and we are the clay. He calls on all men everywhere to repent and believe on the LORD Jesus Christ for eternal life.

Thank you Wayne. As always, you have given us perspective.

I went to Marcia's church yesterday, The pastor spoke at length on Romans 9. We belong to Him. He has created us. We are His. I don't know how it can be any clearer.

Would that we all understand who we are before Him.

YeHOVAH, or Yahweh, I think is how LORD is translated in Hebrew.

His name stands alone. Amen.

He is the Triune God of His own Word, God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit.

Not unlike the post before it, we as His sheep are able to graze in the pasture He provides and we are cared for - by His gracious shepherding and love. What an awesome and wonderful Father we have!

You mean we can't construct a god of our own imaginings, shaped by our emotions; an extension of us?!

Knowing that He made us and not we ourselves... it fills me with humility and confidence at the same time!
