--27 of 52--



"I, even I, am the Lord; 
and beside Me there is no Savior."
Isaiah 43:11

This simple, unchanging truth struck me the other day as I was reading my Bible. In the day and age that we live in, what a wonderful Scripture this is to hide in my heart!

Today, we have confused the simplicity of salvation. Instead of trusting in the only One Way (“Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by Me.” John 14:6), many have been deceived into following lies. No one can gain eternal life through Ala, Mohammed, Buddha, Mary, works, good morals, strict convictions, sincerity, or other avenues. There is no other Savior besides Jesus Christ our Lord! There is no other way to have salvation except to repent from our sins and accept Him into our hearts!

I beg you: let no one sway you from this simple truth.

I memorized Psalm 73:26: "My flesh and my heart faileth: but God is the strength of my heart, and my portion for ever."

This verse taught me that whenever my flesh and heart are weak, He makes me strong with His strength. He is always enough for me.
