Live Your Life to Honour God

Daily Devotional

Psalms 113:5 Who is like unto the Lord our God, who dwelleth on high,

Nothing nor anyone is comparable to the greatness of our God. In light of this truth your response should be to live your life to Honour Him.

Where our God is concerned there is no real comparison: comparing anyone else to him is like comparing apples with oranges. It is with that in mind why the Psalmist asks the rhetorical question in Psalms 113:5, “ who is like unto the Lord our God who dwelleth on high?”. By adding the phrase “who dwelleth on high” he was making it abundantly clear about the God he was talking about lest some may seek to confuse the issue. There is only one who“dwelleth on high” and Jehovah is His name. There is just none like unto Him.

With careful consideration you too have to draw the conclusion that the Psalmist drew that there is none like unto our God. Who else is omnipresence in that they can be everywhere at the same time? Who else is omniscient? Psalms 147:4 says He knoweth the number of the stars and calleth them by name. Who else is all-powerful evidenced by Him being able to raise the dead and causing the Jericho wall to come tumbling down? Within this context you do not have to think too hard to realize that no one else nor anything else comes close to what our God can do.  Furthermore, everything that is under the sun was created by Him; that totally rules out anything created being comparable to Him as the creation can never be greater than the creator. We have to join with the Psalmist and ask who is like unto our God?

Given the greatness of our God we are left with no choice but to acknowledge that he is above all else. The only appropriate response therefore was advanced in Psalms 29:2 where it says, give unto the LORD the glory due unto his name; worship the LORD in the beauty of holiness. For His incomparable greatness He is deserving of a lifestyle of honour from you and I.

Life Application: In Honouring God for his incomparable greatness let it be a lifestyle of total obedience. 

Prayer: Lord, there is indeed no one like you on the earth, beneath the earth nor in heaven. You are all knowing, all powerful and all consuming. So, I honour you for who you are right now, in Jesus name amen.
