For Who Is God, But the LORD?

For  Who Is God,  But the LORD?

People have claimed  all sorts  of things  to be their god.     King David knew  the true God,  confessed Him  as LORD  in the midst  of his dire troubles  —  and was saved.     When David  was saved  from King Saul’s murderous attempts,  David sang  in Psalm 18:30-32,

As for God,  His way is blameless;
The word  of the LORD  is tried;
He is a shield  to all  who take refuge  in Him.
For who is God,  but the LORD?
And who is a rock,  except our God,
The God  who girds me  with strength
And makes my way blameless?

David challenges everyone  with the question,  “For who is God,  but the LORD?”     David was totally confident  that only the “LORD”  is God  because  “The word  of the LORD  is tried”.     Everything  in the Bible  has been proven  through history  and the fulfillment  of God’s prophecies.     No other god  has been able  to do anything  like that.     So,  we can stake  our trust  and faith  in the “LORD”,  also.

As we read the history  in the Bible,  we can see  that God’s  “way is blameless”.     In every situation,  God’s patience,  faithfulness,  kindness,  love,  and justice  have been shown  to be  “blameless”.     Seeing God’s blamelessness  makes one bow  in reverence  and appreciation.

The “LORD”  refers to the self-existent,  eternal one.     The “LORD”  has no beginning  or end.     His word  in the Bible has been  “tried”  and tested  in many ways.     It has always  proven itself  to be true.     So,  we can be confident  in God  as our “shield”“rock”,  and “strength”.     What is most awesome  is that He  “makes my way blameless”.

With all  that God does  for us,  we too  can confidently ask,  “For who is God,  but the LORD?”     There is no other god  and never will be.     In that peace,  we say,  “Hallelujah!     LORD,  thank You  for revealing Yourself  to us  for our comfort  and confidence.”

Love,
