The agnostics wonder if there is a God. The materialists boast that they do not need a god. There are even some who do not want to know if there is a God because they do not want to face Him. Christians, however, are thankful for God because they could not live without Him.
In wonderment, the Psalmist and the Christian ask a reasonable question: “Who is like the Lord our God?” And the answer is: “No one!”
Who is like Him in power? He is the “All-Powerful One.” The word “impossible” is not in His vocabulary. Whatever needs to be done He can do. He cannot fail or He would not be God. He is a God who is loving, faithful, merciful, filled with grace and willing to forgive and restore the fallen. While He cannot lie, sin or act contrary to His nature, He can do anything. And one day He will “make all things new.”
Who is like Him in knowledge? He is the “All Knowing One.” God is intuitive and infallible and has knowledge of Himself and all other beings and events. Past, present and future are an open book to Him. He sees, knows and understands everything from beginning through eternity.
Our God is incomparable because God is God. No one will ever judge Him because He is above all and in all. Yet, at the same time “He stoops down” - or, actually humbles himself - “to look down on the heavens and the earth.”
From the moment we are born and He looks into our crib until the moment we die and enter His presence, our gracious God is forever with us. Who, indeed, is like Him?
Prayer: We thank You, Heavenly Father, that You are Who You are, yet love us in spite of our sins and failures. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
Scripture for Today: Psalm 113:5-6 Who is like the Lord our God, the One who sits enthroned on high, who stoops down to look on the heavens and the earth?
