Great is our God

2 Samuel 7_22

Taken from 2 Samuel 7:22 in the New Living Translation, the Verse of the Day for October 15, 2016 celebrates the greatness and uniqueness of God Almighty.

 “How great you are, O Sovereign Lord! There is no one like you. We have never even heard of another God like you!

The Amplified Bible has this to say:

2 Samuel 7:22:

Therefore You are great, O Lord God; for none is like You, nor is there any God besides You, according to all [You have made] our ears to hear.

Similar expressions of the greatness of God ring throughout the Old Testament, as songs of worship and praise come to mind to accompany selected verses:

1 Chronicles 16:25

For the Lord is great and greatly to be praised; He is also to be feared above all gods.

A related expression of God’s greatness is offered with “How Great is Our God” by Chris Tomlin

The Psalmist also declares the same in Psalm 40:16 (NLT):

But may all who search for you be filled with joy and gladness in you. May those who love your salvation repeatedly shout, “The Lord is great!”

“Great are You, Lord” by Michael W. Smith is another reminder of this profound truth:

Psalm 135:5 adds this declaration:

For I know that the Lord is great, And our Lord is above all gods.

The powerful song of worship “I Exalt Thee” comes to mind with this verse from Psalms:

In addition, as 1 Samuel 2:2 (AMP) tells us, we acknowledge:

There is none holy like the Lord, there is none besides You; there is no Rock like our God.

Women of Faith express this same truth in the song: “There is none like you”:

As we go through the day, no matter what we may encounter, let us remember that God is great! There is no one like our God!

Who is like our great God?

2 Samuel 7_22Taken from 2 Samuel 7:22 in the Amplified Bible, the Verse of the Day for October 15, 2015 celebrates the greatness and uniqueness of God Almighty.

Therefore You are great, O Lord God; for there is none like You, and there is no God besides You, according to all that we have heard with our ears.

One of the songs that comes to mind in response to this declaration of the magnitude of our Creator, proclaims “How Great is Our God” by Chris Tomlin

A similar declaration of the greatness of God is made in Jeremiah 10:6:

There is none like You, O Lord; You are great, and great is Your mighty and powerful name.

“Great are You, Lord” by Michael W. Smith reminds us of this profound truth:

The Psalmist echoes the same sentiments and raises a question:

Psalm 89:8

O Lord God of hosts, who is like You, O mighty Lord? Your faithfulness surrounds You [as an intrinsic, unchangeable part of Your very being].

Hillsong answers the question with “There is none like You”

In addition, as 1 Samuel 2:2 (AMP) tells us, we acknowledge:

There is none holy like the Lord, there is none besides You; there is no Rock like our God.

Israel Houghton reiterates the message and makes known that “Our God is greater”:

As we go through the day, no matter what we encounter, let us always remember that God is great! There is no one like our God!

Vashawn Mitchell closes with this final declaration: “Nobody Greater than You”
