Believers can never be found guilty of giving too much honor, praise, and all glory unto our sovereign God. David sits in the temple of God and prays and rejoices in his heart because of the multitudes of grace and mercy revealed and experienced in his life. He prays, "Who am I, O Lord God? And what is my house, that thou hast brought me hitherto?" (II Sam. 7:18). Truly, every believer can identify with David. When we consider who we are (sinners by birth, choice, and practice (I Jn. 1:7-9), and when we consider who God is (holy, just, and almighty (Isa. 45:21), it is amazing and astounding that He would show mercy to any, even more so that God would show mercy to me, the chief of sinners (I Tim. 1:15). Every believer can say with David, "Thou art great, O Lord God: for there is none like thee, neither is there any God besides thee, according to all that we have heard with our ears" (II Sam. 7:22). The scriptures plainly reveal to us there is none like our God (Isa.46:9). What is He like? Consider these five scriptures from the word!
1."Who is like unto thee, O Lord, among the gods? Who is like thee, glorious in holiness?" (Exo. 15: 11) .
2."Who is a God like unto thee, that pardoneth iniquity, and passeth by the transgression of the remnant of his heritage? He retaineth not his anger for ever, because He delighteth in mercy" (Micah 7: 18) .
3. "O Lord God of hosts, who is a strong Lord like unto thee? or to thy faithfulness round about thee? Thou rulest the raging of the sea: when the waves thereof arise, thou stillest them" (Psa. 89:8-9).
4. "Among the gods there is none like unto thee, O Lord; neither are there any works like unto thy works. All nations whom thou hast made shall come and worship before thee, O Lord; and shall glorify thy name. For thou art great, and doest wondrous things; thou art God alone" (Psa. 86:8-10).
5. "And Solomon stood before the altar of the Lord in the presence of all the congregation of Israel, and spread forth his hands toward heaven; and he said, Lord God of Israel, there is no God like thee, in heaven above, or on earth beneath, who keepest covenant and mercy with thy servants that walk before thee with all their heart" (I Kings 8:22-23).
