If you’ve ever searched for words to adequately describe a person or experience … Then you’ve encountered the limitation of language when it comes to capturing grandiose ideas. At times life is inexpressibly amazing or unfathomably tragic.
Sometimes I have trouble accurately describing my time in Ecuador. How much I love my family is hard to put into words. And when it comes to talking about God, He is far beyond my capacity.
God is truly like no one else I have ever known, or ever will!
Jeremiah 10:6 says, “There is none like you, O LORD; you are great, and your name is great in might.” My heart can do nothing but exalt God simply for being God.
“Who is like the LORD our God?” Psalm 113 asks. He is seated on high, with full visibility to and control over heaven and earth. He uplifts the poor and needy, honoring them with dignity and treasure. He blesses the barren woman with children, turning her desperation into joyful pleasure (verses 5-9).
Another servant of God breaks into praise in Micah 7:18.
Who is a God like you, pardoning iniquity and passing over transgression for the remnant of His inheritance? He does not retain His anger forever, because He delights in steadfast love.
God’s character and work are unquantifiable. We could chatter unceasingly, filling all of eternity with stories of who God is and what He has done. We could write endless pages of chronicles, expend all the worlds’ ink, and still only have compiled a fraction of His marvels.
You have multiplied, O LORD my God, your wondrous deeds and your thoughts toward us; none can compare with you! I will proclaim and tell of them, yet they are more than can be told.
– Psalm 40:5
The apostle John says something similar in his account of Jesus’ earthly ministry. “Now there are also many other things that Jesus did,” he notes toward the end of his Gospel. “Were every one of them to be written, I suppose that the world itself could not contain the books that would be written” (21:25).
Is that not amazing?!
Even more, we can be assured that God does not resemble human beings. Numbers 23:19 emphasizes, “God is not man, that He should lie, or a son of man, that He should change His mind. Has He said, and will He not do it? Or has He spoken, and will He not fulfill it?”
God’s Provision: Praise the Lord, He is far above us! Nothing can stop Him, for He holds complete authority and right over all things, ever. Isaiah reminds us, “For the LORD of hosts has purposed, and who will annul it? His hand is stretched out, and who will turn it back?” (14:27).
Word of the Week: Boundless. God is unlimited, unrestricted, unrestrained. He is supreme—in holiness, majesty, wisdom, and glory, to name only a few. Matchless, sovereign, and omnipotent, God fills all in all (Ephesians 1:23).
Surely, there is none like Him!
