Scripture:   2Samuel 7:22  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. 

Observation:   King David was responding to God’s message that God would establish David’s line as King forever.  I hear David saying, “I have never heard anyone speak of any God like you.  From what I hear of the other gods, not one of them even comes close to you!  You are far superior to all other gods!”  

Application:  If David was in awe of God during his days, how much more should I be in awe of God today!   People worship the gods of nature and the gods of their ancestors.  I have never heard anyone talking about their god being infinite in strength and also both holy AND loving!   I have never heard of another God as holy—existing in perfect rightness and demanding a perfect sacrifice to pay for my sin!  I have never heard of another God as loving—loving us so much that he sent his only son to die for my sins that I might have access into His presence!!!  

Prayer:   Heavenly Father, I am in awe of your perfectly demonstrated holiness and your perfectly expressed love!   You are amazing!  Amen
