Yahweh Alone is God~ Isaiah BREAKDOWN

is 453

Isaiah 45:3 ~Unpack our scripture for the week and share with us what you learned. Use verse mapping as an optional study tool

I will give you hidden treasures,
    riches stored in secret places,
so that you may know that I am the Lord,
    the God of Israel, who summons you by name.

 

Treasures? Riches? Oh my gracious. This verse still leaves me breathless. Sometimes it is hard to see the treasures through all the trials BUT God says He is the Lord and there is none else! Amen!

 

I will give you hidden treasures, riches stored in secret places,~

 

Sorcerers pretended to show treasures but God says he will really give hidden treasures to Cyrus. So many times the world offers these fake treasures and we accept. God has great plans for His people but they complained anyway. God reminded them they had no right to question the Living God. Am I questioning God and missing my treasure? Yes, I am! Worry seeps into my body and sucks every joyful thought from my mind. I am missing my hidden treasures.

 

I mean Wow! I limit God so much and don’t even realize how much I do it. God used a pagan king to bring about deliverance. Some scholars say he was an outcast. Wow. Wow. Wow.  All the secret riches of the world became prey to Cyrus and Israel would return from Babylon and rebuild Jerusalem.

 

so that you may know that I am the Lord, the God of Israel, who summons you by name.~

 

THERE IS NO OTHER THAN OUR LIVING GOD. WOOOOOOOOHOOOOOOOO. GREAT NEWS. Why wait any longer? Surrender every single thing inside of you to God!

 

Surrender. Surrender. Surrender. I love my family and I constantly worry about their safety. It is a stronghold the enemy has had on me but you know what? It does not matter. What matters? God matters. Glorifying and praising His Holy Name matters. I can’t glorify God when I don’t trust His promises. He does not promise that something won’t happen to my children but He does promise that it will work for the good. He does promise that I am His workmanship. I am the confident, set-free, made-new, and victorious CHILD OF GOD. WOOOHOOO! It says right here that we will all realize that every single thing that happens all life, death, and disaster comes from God. He is sovereign, ya’ll! He can do anything and everything. I cannot limit my God.

 

Cyrus was the human instrument here but it was Jehovah God who made these victories. I tend to put too much emphasis in human hands. I tend to rely on Pastors and Bible leaders to help strengthen me when I should first and foremost rely on God to help me. No book or person can take the place of the quality “quiet” time you have with your Abba. NONE! God used Cyrus to complete His Will and there was nothing that was going to stop Him. No one or nothing can ever oppose or frustrate the purposes of God!!!

 

I always knew it was important to memorize scripture but never really understood until more recent years. Lysa in Chapter 7 says it perfectly:

 

“Do you see now why it’s so important to fill our hearts and minds with God’s Words and how vital it is to make His truth the foundation not only for our identity but how we deal with food? The Holy Spirit uses God’s words stored up inside us to nudge us, remind us, redirect us, empower us, and lead us on to victory.”

Lysa TerKeurst, Made to Crave

 

Please as you go through your day take some time to just pause and Praise God that He alone rules the universe. Yahweh alone is God.  We are all desperate woman begging God to speak to us. We are desperate for His Presence. We were made to Crave Him. God speaks to us through His Word. The Holy Spirit talks to us and nudges us from memorized scripture. So join me as I remind myself to store up the treasures and riches of the Living Word in my heart.

  1. Surrender – how can one word pack such a big punch? It truly is about leaving it all with God and knowing that He will take care of our struggles, anxieties or uncertainties. Thank you for this reminder. Blessings, Mary!

  2. Great post! Surrendering it all to God and knowing He has a wonderful plan for me!! Thanks for writing and sharing! Love your pictures!

  3. Yes! I also tend to push too much into human hands, Kristy! Realizing it’s not my pastor’s job or a bible study leader’s job to get God’s Word in me… But MINE! Thank you for the reminder about memorizing scripture. I needed to hear those words. Not highlight. Underline. But memorize! Blessings to you girlie!

  4. Enjoyed this post and the reminders in it: “No book or person can take the place of the quality “quiet” time you have with your Abba. NONE!” Amen and Amen. Thank you for your words. Stephanie Solberg OBS Group Leader

  5. Thank you for your post! How easy is it to fall into thinking that things of this world are our “treasures”? We can’t imagine life without them… but GOD, alone, IS abundant life. God + Nothing = Life Abundant. Why is that so hard to remember?

    Also thank you for addressing the fact that nothing else can take the place of God’s word. Sometimes I will begin reading a book or just listen to a sermon to fill my cup… but God’s Holy Word is RIGHT there!! I always imagine it like I am at a big feast. I am personally invited, sitting in a big chair, so much wonderful food around me and I am ravishing hungry. To not choose God’s Word in that moment is to choose to go hungry rather than feast on what He has offered!

    Blessings. Tori Hayden (P31 Bible study)

  8. Kristy, how many times have I limited what Treasure God offered for the fake “treasure” this world offers. Thank you Lord, for you infinite Grace! I love your fire for our God and your desire to make the riches He’s spread in your own life known to all! Love. That.
