TO WHOM WILL YOU COMPARE ME?

“To whom will you compare me? Or who is my equal?” says the Holy One. Lift your eyes and look to the heavens: Who created all these? He who brings out the starry host one by one, and calls forth each of them by name. Because of his great power and mighty strength, Not one of them is missing. – Isaiah 40:25-26

I am so thankful that God is so great. So big. So powerful. So intimate. So all-knowing. So strong. I am so thankful that no one and nothing is God’s equal. Because I need – we all need – the deep soul-security that God alone is the Sovereign One over all that exists. That God is bigger than anyone and anything, any circumstance and situation that could discombobulate and disturb our lives.

To whom will we compare God? To no one. To nothing.

I need to know that my God intimately knows me and personally calls me by name, just as He does each one of the incalculable number of stars in the vast universe He created.

To whom will we compare God? To no one. To nothing.

I need to know that my God is great in power and mighty in strength, because there are moments and days and seasons when I feel (and truly am) completely powerless and unable to keep the discombobulating, disturbing stuff of life away from me and from those I love. God is never discombobulated. God is never disturbed. God is always great in power and mighty in strength.

To whom will we compare God? To no one. To nothing.

I need to know that my God always sees me, always cares about where I am – literally and figuratively – in the minutiae of my life and in the grand scheme of eternity for my life. I need to know that to my God I am never missed, and I could never go missing.

To whom will we compare God? To no one. To nothing.

Our God is the Sovereign God over all creation. Unimaginably intimate with us, His beloved creations. Our God is great in power. Mighty in strength. Our God is all-knowing.

Our God is absolutely incomparable. And I am so thankful.
