I am the Lord, and there is no other;
    apart from me there is no God.
I will strengthen you,
    though you have not acknowledged me,
so that from the rising of the sun
    to the place of its setting
people may know there is none besides me.
    I am the Lord, and there is no other.

Isaiah 45:5-6


These verses from Isaiah remind me that not only do we serve an amazing God, who is Lord over Japan even though so few honor him as Lord (less than 1%). But that he daily gives me strength to serve him, even though I am far less than perfect.
