The Incomparable God is Your God

10 Nov
One way to get an idea of the greatness of God is by comparing him to other things that are great. For example, one might compare Him to the angels.
The Psalmist does.
He writes in Psalm 89:5-7,
‘Let the heavens praise your wonders, O Lord, your faithfulness in the assembly of the holy ones. For who in the skies can be compared to the Lord? Who among the heavenly beings is like the Lord, a God greatly to be feared in the council of the holy ones,, and awesome above all who are around him.”

In comparing God to the angels, the psalmist tells us there is no comparison really. Not one of these great and glorious beings even deserves to be compared to Him.

God is unendingly exalted above the greatest of all created beings in glory, in majesty, in beauty, and in every other way. 
And what’s amazing is that this God, this incomparable God, who is all powerful, eternal, all wise, lovely, holy, who is the beginning and the end, is your God, if you are believer. You are at peace with the incomparable God. He is your friend. You know Him. He knows you. And He speaks with you, the way someone would speak with a friend, He dwells with you and in you, by the Holy Spirit.
He’s adopted you into His family. He is your father. He sees you as His child. And He will care for you like a son. He will see that you have what you need and that you are able to do what He has planned for you to do. He has made you one of His heirs, a co-heir along with His Son, and He will give an inheritance to you that is fitting for a child of the King of Kings.
And right now, today, this moment, He is sanctifying you and you are being made holy, and as a result, one day, when you stand in heaven, God Himself will celebrate, and bring you His child into His arms, and He will invite you to experience the perfect enjoyment and communion with Him.
You will be made like Him, because you will see Him as He is.
When you think about all this, about having a God like this as your God, your friend, your father, knowing that you have this kind of future, this eternal enjoyment of Him to look forward to, it helps you think straight about everything else as well and is enough to make the troubles and difficulties you experience now seem small in comparison!

    Josh, thank you for the encouraging thoughts. Since our God is so great, we should be more encouraged as we think about this.
