“For Who You Are, Lord God” ( 2 Samuel 7: 22, HCSB ) by Carley Evans

“This is why You are great, Lord God. There is no one like You, and there is no God besides You, as all we hear confirms.”

 

What do you hear about the Lord God? Do you hear of all He does for others? Do you hear that He loves you beyond measure, beyond comprehension? Do you hear about His phenomenal wisdom and power?

 

Job says, “I hear rumors about You [God], but now my eyes see You. Therefore I take back my words, and repent in dust and ashes.” (Job 42: 5-6)

 

You worship God not because of what He does, but because of who He is. “There is no God besides [Him].” “There is no one like [Him.]”

 

Job tells God, “I know that You can do anything and no plan of Yours can be thwarted.” (Job 42: 2) God tells Job, “Have you ever in your life commanded the morning or assigned the dawn its place, so it may seize the edges of the earth and shake the wicked out of it?” (Job 38: 12-13)

 

We are unable to answer God’s questions. We are only able to recognize His perfection — that He is worthy of our adoration.

 

“Father God, we thank You for who You are.”
