Our verse is part of what Jethro, Moses’ father-in-law, declared to him about God. Note the word he uses to describe God: He is greater than all gods. It is a difficult concept to grasp: greater or greatest! We are always on the move looking for the next great thing. Whether it’s a bike, car, faster car, apartment, condo, house, or bigger house. In every pursuit we rarely come to “This is it and there is nothing greater!” We usually stop whenever our checkbook is on empty. We have come this far in our quest for the greatest.
But when we turn to our Lord, He is at the top, there is none like Him, no one compares to Him, there is no competition and no hill to climb, He is the GREATEST. I love that, my God is the greatest, the only true God. He is Almighty, All-Powerful, All-Knowing, Omnipresent; there is nothing to be improved upon or another god to seek for, He alone is God! Knowing that about Him and that He loves me solves any real issue immediately. My God reigns!
Chew on that today,
