Psalm 89:6 "For who in the heaven can be compared to the LORD? who among the sons of the mighty can be likened to the LORD?"
"Hear me, O Lord...that this people may know that thou art the Lord God, and that thou hast turned their heart back again." (I Kings 18:37)
God desires that we have a monogamous relationship, a covenant relationship with Him. He desires that we consecrate ourselves to Him. He is jealous for us. We are to focus on the things that have eternal value because to Him we have eternal value. He wants us to store up our treasures in heaven because He can protect them until our time comes and if our treasures are in heaven so too will be our hearts. If we store up a good foundation, we can lay hold of eternal life. Our commitment to live by His Word and Spirit in the example of Jesus Christ will be rewarded by His promise of eternal glory. He maintains us.
God desires that we believe in Him, that we trust in Him and His promises. His perfect love has cast out fear. All of our faith will be placed in His hands for the purpose of progressing His kingdom and His will and to stand as evidence of His victory. Our faith is the confident expectation of our hope in Him. He expects that in all things we seek His purpose and His will and give all our worries to Him. He protects us and cares for us.
