There Is None Like You!

Jeremiah is one of my favorite prophets from the Old Testament. He has a heart that bleeds for his people and is fiercely loyal to God. The way he words various forms of praise rival even the great psalmist David. Listen to these beautiful words.

“There is none like you, O LORD; you are great, and your name is great in might. 7 Who would not fear you, O King of the nations? For this is your due; for among all the wise ones of the nations and in all their kingdoms there is none like you. (Jeremiah 10:6, 7)

He sees God’s greatness and captures just exactly what every person ought to feel in His presence. Sadly, God’s people were more loyal to the false gods than the one True God. He points men to the “One true God; He is the living God and everlasting King, At his wrath the earth quakes, and the nations cannot endure his indignation. ” (Vs. 10). Jeremiah shows how “foolish and stupid the idols made of wood truly are.

Do we sometimes worship more the things made by man than the God who made us? If we do, we will be sorely disappointed at the judgment where we will give an account to God (2Co 5:10).
