Certainly, YHWH does nothing unless He reveals His secret plan to His servants the prophets. – Amos 3:7
YHWH, Yahweh, I AM, our God is self-existent. He is all-sufficient, meaning that He needs nothing outside of Himself to exist. This one truth supports all others concerning His character and attributes. God’s self-existence explains and gives credence to His omnipotence (infinite power), omniscience (infinite knowledge), and omnipresence. It also erases any reasonable challenges to His immutability (unchanging nature). God indeed has need of nothing.
Yet, He has, throughout the ages, chosen to work through human agency to accomplish His purposes. The prophet, Amos, under the inspiration of the Holy Spirit, declared this awesome truth. Prior to the coming of Christ, God chose to do nothing without revealing it to His prophets. At a time when God certainly may have seemed distant and impersonal, He was anything but.
God has always sought a relationship with the height of His creation (mankind). It was a priority “in the beginning” and it still is today. He desires to involve each of us in the accomplishment of His purposes. Christ is our Head and those of us who call Him Lord are His Body. He has made us essential. We matter. You matter.
Are you, today, there for Him?
We can rest assured that whatever gifts are appropriate to the job God wants us to do, they will be given to us. – Elisabeth Elliott
