Four times in the NET Bible the phrase “God of gods” is used, all of them in the Old Testament. One time it is used by a pagan king, but the other three are used by Moses, one of the psalmists, and an angel. The four passages are in Deuteronomy 10.17; Psalm 136.2; Daniel 2.47; and Daniel 11.36. (The NASB, ESV, and NIV also record the phrase in these four passages.)
God is so great that we may speak of him all day, every day, without tiring. His acts are wonderful, his word is marvelous, his love has no measure. His thoughts are inexhaustible, the intricacy of his plan beyond beautiful. God deserves all the glory of man’s heart!
Many people seek God when they feel they need something: relief from problems, solutions to crises, healing for body or relationships. God wants us to seek him for himself. No need is greater than our need for him. He created us this way. Glory to God for satisfying this deepest need!
I think that no one listens—God hears
The humble man who walks in faith, and fears
The Lord. What man may do has little meaning
When God for blessed saints is intervening.
Serving God is more than life,
To please him is more than man’s esteem;
What power to walk in holy light!
All other paths are hard and steep.
The Liar’s way is best, he claims:
He smooths the bumps and opens doors,
But hides the truth, and in festive clothes
He paints the painful face of death. Continue reading
God notices every detail. He knows the numbers of hairs on our heads. He takes care of the needs of the smallest creatures. God is in both the universe and the atom. After all, he created it all. Glory to God for his attention to detail!
Shout for joy to God, our source of strength,
In our distress we called, and he reached down;
He welcomes all to refuge in his tent,
By him the lonely heart is loved and known. Continue reading
God is not created. He is eternal. He was and is and always will be. No one else is like God. Angels and demons are created beings. No one deserves worship besides God. Only God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit deserve our submission and obedience. Glory to God for his uniqueness!
God never acts impulsively. He always acts according to his eternal plan. God does not lose control of himself. Man’s struggle is for self-control. God is in control of himself and the universe. Glory to God for his divine control!
“God is love.” He is love’s very essence. He not only shows love and not only acts always with love, but defines love. No one can out-love God. No one can love more than God loves. But we can love
like God. We must love as he loves. He shows us how, and empowers us to love. Glory to God for his every demonstration of love in Jesus Christ!
See Mt 5.43-48.
