How great you are, Sovereign Lord! There is no one like you, and there is no God but you, as we have heard with our own ears (2 Samuel 7:22 NIV). 

In our world of constant advertising for the next “best and brightest” innovation in whatever area, we tend to grow numb to the adjectives used to describe these items.  We hear how something is brighter, faster, stronger, more durable, indestructible, long-lasting, able-to-withstand, waterproof, weatherproof, whatever-proof, and tend to shrug our shoulders at it all.  A sense of “so what” overcomes us.

When it comes to God, I think we can be in danger of the same thinking, “He is God, so what?”

Oh my dear ones, may we never, ever, ever, ever lump God with the things mankind has created.  God, God, God is so much more than something man has made, which will always break down, become obsolete, or “new and improved.”

God is never going to break down– He is timeless (“I am the Alpha and the Omega,” says the Lord God, “who is, and who was, and who is to come, the Almighty… Revelation 1:8). 

God is great, awesome, powerful, wonderful (1 Chronicles 16:9), amazing, worthy of our praise.

He is unfailing, His love never fails (Psalm 33:5).

He is immovable, unshakable, incredible.


We use all manner of words to describe Him, but in the end the one word that matters most is what you personally call Him.

Do you call Him Father ? Do you call Him Lord?  Do you call Him Abba? 

My Abba Father loves us so much.  He calls us precious, He calls us His children.  He says we are co-heirs with Christ.

Seek Him today, know His love and His grace today.  List all the ways He touches your life.  You may find some new adjectives of your own.
