None Like Thee!

 8Among the gods there is none like unto thee, O Lord; neither are there any works like unto thy works.
 9All nations whom thou hast made shall come and worship before thee, O Lord; and shall glorify thy name.
 10For thou art great, and doest wondrous things: thou art God alone. 

None Like Thee! 

As we meditate upon God's wondrous works, we must agree with the psalmist, David, "O Lord, there is none like Thee!" 

Oh what love God displayed when He rescued man from himself! When sin entered into the hearts of Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden, there was no hope. They had sealed their own, as well as all of mankind's, self-destruction. Yet God, in His great love and mercy, sent His only Son to pay that awful debt of sin. Nothing but the shedding of Christ's blood could erase, forever, the penalty of Adam and Eve's fateful decisions. 

Does that mean that all men are saved from the penalty of sin? No. The Bible tells us, in John 3:16, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life. Those who do not believe in the Lord Jesus Christ are not saved. 

And, that is not all! God does not sit in heaven and watch His people work their way through this life in a haphazard fashion. Instead, He leads His children, even through the valley of the shadow of death.  His children are not only saved from the results of sin, but God has given a new heart and a new life to them. Though they will still battle their own sins in this life, the day will come when they will be released, forever, from this body of sin and death, and will enter the glories of heaven to live with the Lord forever.

Sadly, Satan, when cast into the lake of fire, will carry a large percentage of mankind with him, who have bought into his evil and deceptive lies. In their pride and arrogance, most do not even see their need of a savior. Yet, the day will come when all nations will come and worship before God, and will glorify His holy name. As they stand before the great judgment seat of Christ, they will find themselves without excuse, but it will be too late.

We are told in 2 Corinthians 6:2 that, now is the accepted time; behold, now is the day of salvation. Now is the day when the portals of heaven stand open, and all who call upon the name of the Lord Jesus shall be saved.
 12Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved. (Acts 4:12, King James Version)
We can do nothing but bow before God and say, Thou art great, and doest wondrous things; thou art God alone

Truly, their is none like Thee, O Lord!

God Bless You,
Linda
