GOD ABOVE GODS
Rev. Mike Jones
Solomon said “The house which I build is great: for great is our God above all gods” (2 Chronicles 2:5). There is no god equal to, or higher than, our God! Never underestimate Him.
Here are some things you need to know about God:
- God acts independently of all outside forces: All the inhabitants of the earth are reputed as nothing: and he doeth according to his will in the army of heaven, and among the inhabitants of the earth: and none can stay his hand, or say unto him, What doest thou? (Daniel 4:35).
- Nothing that man does or invents can change what God determines to do: There are many devices in a man’s heart; nevertheless the counsel of the LORD, that shall stand (Proverbs 19:21).
- Nothing takes God by surprise: Known unto God are all his works from the beginning of the world (Acts 15:18).
- God does not change and he works everything according to the counsel of His Own Will: Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning (James 1:17).
- Nothing happens that God is not aware of: The eyes of the LORD are in every place, beholding the evil and the good (Proverbs 15:3). What a great joy this should bring to Christians as they recognize that nothing that happens in our life is a surprise to God. What a Warning this should be to sinners as they realize God sees all that goes on inside and outside of their life.
For the LORD is great, and greatly to be praised: he is to be feared above all gods. (Psalms 96:4).
