Who is like unto the LORD our God, who dwelleth on high (Ps. 113:5 KJV)
When the Psalmist asked the question above during a moment of praise to God, he is not expecting an answer, because he knows what it is. There is really no one like our God. The Lord is unique, and distinct in His nature, attributes and qualities and there is no living being like Him.
The Psalmist goes further to describe what he has seen with the Lord which he has not seen in any other. He says “Who humbleth himself to behold the things that are in heaven, and in the earth! He raiseth up the poor out of the dust, and lifteth the needy out of the dunghill…. (Ps. 113:6-7 KJV). The Lord dwells on high, and has to humble Himself to look at the things in heaven!
It is easy for us to overlook the fact that heaven, God’s throne was created, with all the angels, including Satan. They are all the work of His hands, just as the earth and all that is in it. The Creator is outside of His creation. He is higher than the earth and higher than the heaven. There is none like Him.
The Lord takes delight in the praise and the worship of His people. And when we declare His praises as the Psalmist did above with our words in songs, psalms, hymns and spiritual songs, His name is lifted up and His glory is released in our lives. Make a practice of praising the Lord constantly.
Think of one attribute of our God that you have known about and allow your mind to meditate and ponder upon it. Allow your heart to take a glimpse of His greatness and really see that there is indeed none like Him.
APPLY THE WORD
I encourage you to learn to see God’s greatness in your life. As you do, the challenges that might appear so big suddenly start becoming small.
Ask the Lord to enable you praise Him in a way that really reaches to “His heart”!
