“Among the gods there is none like you, O Lord; no deeds can compare with yours.”
Since Moses came down the mountain to give us the Ten Commandments, we have been breaking them almost every day. Especially the first one, which is, “You shall have no other gods before me.”
The first commandment reminds us of the plagues of Egypt. Every time Moses proclaimed a plague upon Egypt, God was dealing with the Egyptian gods. Pharaoh heard, “This is what the Lord says: Let my people go, so that they may worship me.” His love was extended through difficult circumstances to show how much more powerful He was than the gods that were being worshiped.
Today, we still wonder if God is able to rescue us from the slavery we get ourselves into. We worship money and allow it to enslave us. We worship the sun and let it take away our health and beauty. God sees our wrongfully-placed worship and reminds us with miracles of healing and financial relief that He is still God.
But like the Hebrew people wandering in the wilderness, we forget about God’s love, provision, and protection. We whine and complain to God just as they did thousands of years ago. And He still loves us.
When we stop long enough to realize how much He loves us, we worship again with our whole heart.
Daily, He waits for our conversation. He waits for us to remember Him. He waits for us to remember that He is like no other.
He alone is God.
