II Samuel 7:22

Tom Harding

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!
