Verse of the Day

Today's Verse

“How great you are, Sovereign LORD! There is no one like you, and there is no God but you, as we have heard with our own ears.”

2 Samuel 7:22 NIV

Devotion

Have you heard? Have you heard about it with your ears? Have you read about it with your eyes? If not, then today is the day! Take time to read and learn what is the most important thing you could ever know. Although this knowledge is being made available to people everywhere, not enough of them are paying attention. Don’t be foolish like them.

Listen to what is being proclaimed. Read what has been written. The Sovereign Lord created the heavens and earth, and He reigns supreme over all things. There is no escaping His rule. Knowing about Him is the most important thing you could ever know. Everything depends upon Him. Everything happens because of Him.

In the verses following this, King David recounts how God chose the Israelites for himself, saving them from Egypt and making them into a great nation. When we hear with our ears the mighty works of our God, we are in awe and we know that there is no God but Him. Without His creative and sustaining power, everything else would revert back to the nothingness from which He called it forth.

Anything else proclaimed by people to be a god is nothing more than a creature, nothing more than a pretender to the throne. It’s a waste of time to look for another god to save you.

Pay heed! Don’t deny the greatness of God or try to evade His sovereign rule. Stop looking for an alternative to Him. Bow before the only great and Sovereign Lord!
