Reflection

There is only one God. Have you ever stopped to think about what that actually means? He is unique. There is nothing else in the entire universe like Him. Look at what Scripture says:

There is none like the God of Jeshurun, who rides the heavens to your help, and through the skies to His majesty. -Deuteronomy 33:26

For this reason You are great, O Lord GOD, for there is none like you, and there is no God besides You…-2 Samuel 7:22

There is none like You, O LORD; You are great, and great is Your name in might. Who would not fear You, O King of the nations? Indeed, it is Your due! For among all the wise men of the nations and in all their kingdoms, there is none like You. -Jeremiah 10:6,7

Nothing else in the world can compare. He is the only God that exists.

Many have had their own notions of what God is, or even that there are many gods. Some just like to think of a Higher Power; most would rather not think about a god at all. However Scripture declares emphatically that God exists, and He is the only One that does.

This is the God that we worship.

Question to Consider

  • Have you ever praised God for His being the only true and living God?
