Today I am continuing with my most popular posts….
” To whom will you compare me? Or who is my equal?” says the Holy One.” Isaiah 40:25
There’s nobody like Him! To whom are you gonna compare Him? Anything you line up next to Him is ridiculous. He’s in a class all. by. Himself.
He makes claims nobody else can, and He backs up every one of them. EVERY one! No one else can claim to never leave you nor forsake you (Hebrews 11:25b) and then have the omnipresence to keep that promise. (Psalm 139:7-10)
All others say “Work your way up to me, appease me.”
Our wonderful God says, ” You don’t have what it takes to make it to Me. How about I come to you instead? You don’t have enough good in inventory to appease Me. Let me provide that too. Let me grant the very righteousness I require so we can be together.” (Romans 8:3-4) Who does that!? Our merciful God, that’s Who! Nobody like Him!
Then He has the glorious nerve to provide this to everyone. No special license, background, education, pedigree, skin color, or credit check required. Whosoever will may come. ( Romans 10:13) Nobody like Him!
Then there’s the love. He’s more than a God Who’s bigger than you, requiring whatever tribute the King of the Universe has every right to demand. He is relational, personal, compassionate, and intimately acquainted with all your ways…not a dry, mute statue to bring incense to, but a living, concerned, and conversational God. (1John 3:1; Psalm 145:8; Exodus 34:6; Psalm 138:3) Nobody like Him.
I wouldn’t dare leave out the resurrection. Nobody else has the patent on that but our God. Death was a snarling, ferocious, and carnivorous beast whose dungeon was the grave. Our Mighty God defeated that beast and turned that very dark dungeon into a doorway to Heaven.
Can anyone be silent about such a God as He? Let the idols of the earth be satisfied with incense and fearful appeasement. A God as mighty and unique as ours deserves so much better. Reserve your worship, best love, and service for Him precisely because there is nobody like Him. (Romans 12:1)
