Who Lord?

 5And the heavens shall praise thy wonders, O LORD: thy faithfulness also in the congregation of the saints.
 6For who in the heaven can be compared unto the LORD? who among the sons of the mighty can be likened unto the LORD?
 7God is greatly to be feared in the assembly of the saints, and to be had in reverence of all them that are about him.
 8O LORD God of hosts, who is a strong LORD like unto thee? or to thy faithfulness round about thee?
 9Thou rulest the raging of the sea: when the waves thereof arise, thou stillest them.
 10Thou hast broken Rahab in pieces, as one that is slain; thou hast scattered thine enemies with thy strong arm. 

Who Lord?

Who Lord is like unto Thee? What a magnificent psalm of praise to our great God and King! Even the heavens praise the wonders of God, but does man? How does man miss the obvious? Even creation cries out the wonders of God; even the creatures know and worship Him!

Look at the questions the writer asks.
For who in the heaven can be compared unto the LORD?
Who among the sons of the mighty can be likened unto the LORD?
O LORD God of hosts, who is a strong LORD like unto thee?
. . or to thy faithfulness round about thee?
How shall we answer the psalmist? None, Lord, but Thee!

Do we really want our lives ruled by lowly, sinful man? Can man compare to the strength of the Lord? Is man faithful like God? Did man create this world in which he lives? Can man rule the raging of the sea or still the waves? Can man rule the nations and scatter his enemies with his strong arm?

When man seeks to live his life in his own way, he is not just making a decision to be independent. Rather, he is making a decision to reject God.
 3How shall we escape, if we neglect so great salvation; which at the first began to be spoken by the Lord, and was confirmed unto us by them that heard him; (Hebrews 2:3, King James Version)
The answer to that question is: we will not escape if we neglect so great a salvation provided for us by the blood of the Lord Jesus Christ. Even if every day of this life is lived on beds of ease, if no preparation is made for the life after this death, then all of eternity will be a time of suffering and torment. It does not even matter if we believe in life after death. Our belief of lack of belief does not make a difference; the reality of truth is not dependent upon anyone's belief!

Let us, then, rejoice in our great God and King, for no matter what evils we experience on this earth, the time will come when all of this life will pass away. What an amazing God we serve!

Who Lord is like unto Thee? No one!

God Bless You,
Linda
