“For from days of old they have not heard or perceived by ear, Nor has the eye seen a God besides You, Who acts in behalf of the one who waits for Him.” – Isaiah 64:4 (NASB)
Too often in order to not ‘offend’ those who believe in gods that don’t exist, gods of their own creation, even faith believer in Jesus Christ will compare non-existent gods to our God. Isaiah’s words reveal to us that no one at all has ever seen a God besides the one true God. Nobody ever has perceived by the hearing of their ears or the seeing of their eyes any god besides God Almighty the Creator of the Earth and all that is upon it. These words were true in Isaiah’s time nearly 2600 years ago. He declares that since the beginning there has been only one God who would respond to the needs of the human race. And during all these years since Isaiah wrote these words, there has been no other God – although many have tried to create for themselves an acceptable god. What a joy to know that we do have a God who acts on our behalf when we turn to Him. We can trust in the promise that He acts on our behalf. This is the one and only God and He is our God, our heavenly Father who is near us every day.
