Read Psalm 86:10-17
"For thou art great, and does wondrous things: thou art God alone" (v. 10).
Several years ago, our oldest son applied for a loan to purchase a home. After a few days, he received a letter saying that he was denied the loan. He contacted the loan company to find out why he had been denied. He was told that his credit was impeccable but that he was overextending himself. As he looked deeper into his credit report, he found that the loan I had secured to purchase a home was on his credit record. The combined payments from his load and mine were more than his income could repay.
The reason for the discrepancy was that our names are the same except for different middle initials. Because of the failure of someone to examine our names carefully, we were not recognized as different individuals.
God is God alone. Some have attempted to impersonate Him, but anyone who looks diligently will recognize that He is God alone. There are other gods, resulting in different religions, but there is only one true God. Jeremiah wrote, "And ye shall seek me, and find me, when ye shall search for me with all your heart" (29:13). A diligent search for Him will result in finding Him because He is God alone. (Larry DeOrnellis)
We always find Him when we diligently search for Him.
