Only One God
God's Little Angel: Shine Your Light Devotional
by Sheila Walsh
God made you in His image. That means He made you to be like Him. God made you to be loving, good, kind, fair, honest, and caring. But just like you are a one-of-a-kind person, God is a one-of-a-kind God. He didn’t make you like Him in every way. God is perfect, and no one can or ever will be as perfect as He is. He can do many things that you can’t.
The God of the Bible is the one and only God. He is perfectly good and kind and also very strong and powerful. There is nothing that He can’t do. He has the amazing power to see and hear everything and be everywhere all at the same time. He knows everything that happens, and He knows about it before it happens. God is the great King of everything. He is in charge of heaven and earth, the sky and stars, you, me animals, angels, everything.
Words can’t describe how much God loves you and how much He wants you to love Him back. There are many ways to do that. You can tell God you love Him in your prayers, sing songs to Him, read the Bible, and tell others about how wonderful He is. Can you think of other ways to show Him your love?
Read the devotional again to find the answer to this question: What are some things God can do that you can’t do?
Shine Your Light
God loves it when a family prays together. Thanking God aloud in prayer is one way to speak about His one-and-only greatness. Get your family together and teach them to say this prayer: “We thank You, God, for the world so sweet. We thank You, God, for the food we eat. We thank You, God, for the birds that sing. We thank You, God, for everything.” Get in the habit of praying together every morning or every night at bedtime.
