There is no God :: Girding and Strengthening


Isaiah 45:5 states “I am the Lord, and there is none else, there is no God beside me: I girded thee, though thou hast not known me:”
Psalm 18:32 states “It is God that girdeth me with strength, and maketh my way perfect.”
Nehemiah 8:10 states “… for the joy of the Lord is your strength.”
Psalm 51:10 statesRestore unto me the joy of thy salvation; and uphold me with thy free spirit.”
Jude 1:24 states “Now unto him that is able to keep you from falling, and to present you faultless before the presence of his glory with exceeding joy,”

Hidden in these verses is the treasure of knowing that
1. God girds (surrounds/binds) us.
2. God girds us with strength (even if we don’t know him).
3. God girds us with his joy for the joy of the Lord is our strength and our Salvation.
4. God girds us with exceeding joy of his Salvation in Jesus Christ who makes our way (life) perfect (faultless), when we know him.

Points to ponder:
Jesus among other gods stands out for there is no other God like Jesus who can present us faultless with exceeding strength that he girds us with. Are your girded with the truth? The Truth, which when known, shall make you free (John 8:32). Jesus said, I am The Way, The TRUTH and The Life (john 14:6). To know God is eternal life (John 17:3) making you free from the power of death. Are you girded with the joy of the Lord? Are you girded with the Salvation of the Lord, which is given freely to all who believe in Jesus Christ – the only God who girds and strengthens. Let the weak now say, I am strong (Joel 3:10), girded by the Lord.

Isaiah 45:5 (KJV)
For Jacob my servant’s sake, and Israel mine elect, I have even called thee by thy name: I have surnamed thee, though thou hast not known me.
I am the Lord, and there is none else, there is no God beside me: I girded thee, though thou hast not known me:
That they may know from the rising of the sun, and from the west, that there is none beside me. I am the Lord, and there is none else.

Psalm 18:32 (KJV)
32 It is God that girdeth me with strength, and maketh my way perfect.

Nehemiah 8:10 (KJV)
10 Then he said unto them, Go your way, eat the fat, and drink the sweet, and send portions unto them for whom nothing is prepared: for this day is holy unto our Lord: neither be ye sorry; for the joy of the Lord is your strength.

Psalm 51:10 (KJV)
12 Restore unto me the joy of thy salvation; and uphold me with thy free spirit.
Jude 1:24-25 (KJV)
24 Now unto him that is able to keep you from falling, and to present you faultless before the presence of his glory with exceeding joy,
25 To the only wise God our Saviour, be glory and majesty, dominion and power, both now and ever. Amen.
