Text: Isaiah 46:1-10
Title: None Like God
Point One: The One True God
Genesis 1:1-2 - In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. Now the earth was formless and empty, darkness was over the surface of the deep, and the Spirit of God was hovering over the waters.
Exodus 20:1-3 - And God spoke all these words: “I am the Lord your God, who brought you out of Egypt, out of the land of slavery. You shall have no other gods before me."
Point Two: The Relatable God
Hosea 11:3-4 - It was I who taught Ephraim to walk, taking them by the arms; but they did not realize
it was I who healed them. I led them with cords of human kindness, with ties of love. To them I was like one who lifts a little child to the cheek, and I bent down to feed them.
John 10:14-15 - “I am the good shepherd; I know my sheep and my sheep know me— just as the Father knows me and I know the Father —and I lay down my life for the sheep."
Point Three: The Purposeful God
Psalm 33:11 - But the plans of the Lord stand firm forever, the purposes of his heart through all generations.
Proverbs 19:21 - Many are the plans in a person’s heart, but it is the Lord’s purpose that prevails.
Ephesians 1:4-6 - For he chose us in him before the creation of the world to be holy and blameless in his sight. In love he predestined us for adoption to sonship through Jesus Christ, in accordance with his pleasure and will— to the praise of his glorious grace, which he has freely given us in the One he loves
