No God Like God
Today’s scripture selection: Second Chronicles 6-10
Key verse: Second Chronicles 6:14
Solomon said, “LORD, the God of Israel, there is no God like you in heaven or on earth – you who keep your covenant of love with your servants who continue wholeheartedly in your way.”
People love to make comparisons.
We like to compare
- Who has the most money or possessions
- Who has the prettiest wife or handsomest husband
- Who has the best job or office
- Who has the coolest car
- Who has the biggest house
- Who has the smartest kid
- And so it goes
But when wise king Solomon compared the God of Israel to all the other lesser “gods” that others followed – he came to a quick conclusion. There was no comparison that could be made.
“…there is no God like you in heaven or on earth…”
That says it all, doesn’t it?
Do we feel that way about God? Have we taken the time to ponder the depth of God’s love; the width of God’s mercy; the magnificence not just of what God has done but who God is?
It is worth pondering that on a regular basis.
Not because we want to act better than anyone else but simply because we are drawn to celebrate and give thanks.
It’s what “awe” is all about.
Prayer: Lord God Almighty, all merciful, all loving – there is simply no One like you. May I always remember that glorious fact. AMEN.
