To whom then will you liken God? Or what likeness will you compare with Him?
[ISAIAH 40:18 NASB]
He Is God Alone
To what can we compare God? “Who in the skies is comparable to the LORD? Who among the sons of the mighty is like the LORD?” (Psalm 89:6 NASB).
Any pursuit of God’s counterpart is vain. Any search for a godlike person or position on earth is futile. No one and nothing compares with him. No one advises him. No one helps him. It is he who “executes judgment, putting down one and lifting up another” (Psalm 75:7 ESV).
You and I may have power. But God is power. We may be a lightning bug, but he is lightning itself. “Wisdom and power are his” (Daniel 2:20 NIV).
Consider the universe around us. Unlike the potter who takes something and reshapes it, God took nothing and created something. God created everything that exists by divine fiat ex nihilo (out of nothing). He did not rely on material that was preexistent or coeternal. Prior to creation, the universe was not a dark space. The universe did not exist. God even created the darkness. “I am the one who creates the light and makes the darkness” (Isaiah 45:7 NLT). John proclaimed, “You created everything, and it is for your pleasure that they exist and were created” (Revelation 4:11 NLT). . . .
Even God asks, “To whom will you compare me? Who is my equal?” (Isaiah 40:25 NLT). As if his question needed an answer, he gives one: “I am God—I alone! I am God, and there is no one else like me” (46:9 NLT).
[IT’S NOT ABOUT ME]
Lord God, there is no one like you. You are beyond compare. You alone are God. You alone are mighty and powerful. All wisdom belongs to you. The world exists as your amazing creation. We are blessed to be your children. Our minds can hardly comprehend that you, holy Lord God, love us and care about the smallest details of our lives. We can only stand humbly before you and praise your glorious name, amen.
The everlasting God, the LORD, the Creator of the ends of the earth, neither faints nor is weary. His understanding is unsearchable.
You are worthy, O Lord, to receive glory and honor and power; for You created all things, and by Your will they exist and were created.
Blessed be the name of God forever and ever, for wisdom and might are His.
