“You are the salt of the earth, but if salt has lost its taste, how shall its saltiness be restored? It is no longer good for anything except to be thrown out and trampled under people's feet."--Matthew 5:13

The Greatness of "I"

"For I, the Lord your God,
    hold your right hand;
it is I who say to you, “Fear not,
    I am the one who helps you.”
--Isaiah 41:13
The Lord says, through the prophet Isaiah, that it is He who guides us in the right and proper direction. Notice the regularity of the word "I" in this verse in referring to God. God is the creator of the universe. Regardless of what humanists teach, the universe actually does revolve around God. He is zealous for His own glory to be seen throughout the world. 

Lest we become confused who is in control of our lives, God makes it clear that He undoubtedly is sovereign over all the affairs of man. It is He who tells us that we have no need to fear when hardships come. It is He who helps us defeat the trials in our lives.
