The Great God

There is no other God than God. He is the Great God. He is ruler of the heavens, creator of all things and the high judge. He is all-merciful, kind to the brokenhearted and always forgiving. His love is greater than all the love we could ever have for anyone. His joy is endless.

“Clap your hands, all peoples! Shout to God with loud songs of joy! For the Lord, the Most High, is to be feared, a great king over all the earth.” (Psalms 47:1-2)

The greatness of His grace is beyond measure, for He gave His son Jesus as a sacrifice to pay for all our sins. As true as the sun rises and the sun sets, so is God’s love for His children. His love for us never fails. From age to age, His deeds are witness to His greatness. The oceans came together by His command. The earth came to be by His Word. He spoke and it became so. The light testifies His heart and the darkness flees.

All other gods are dust. They cannot hear our voices, see our trials, speak relief, smell our sacrifices or feel a thing. They are senseless. God hears our whispers in the night, sees when we stumble and fall, speaks comfort through His Word, smells the sweet aroma of our prayers and feels compassion for us when we need His help. He is all-knowing, all-merciful and all-loving.

He is the Great God.

  1. My dear friend and Brother Jack,
    I LOVE you’re faith even though it is an at least incomplete understanding.
    God CERTAINLY is Loving and Merciful beyond our expectations, but in order to BE “GOD” He is an absolute sense MUST also be “fair”.

    We can know this by this definition of GOD: “God IS all good things perfected”
    Then we ask if being “fair”; being “just” are “good things”
    Of course they are hence GOD must also be fair and just.
    Substatory salvation is not from God.
    Blessings my friend,
    Patrick (a Roman Catholic)

    1. We can only clothe ourselves in Jesus’ righteousness for God to look upon us justly. Through Jesus’ sacrifice we are saved! God bless, Patrick!
