O God, Who Is Like You?
O God, Who Is Like You?
In all that stresses a person these days, it is good for us to take a breather and remember how God Almighty has carried us through absolutely all our troubles since our birth. The writer of Psalm 71 did just that. Remembering all of God’s loving care over the years quiets our concerns over the present. It reminds us of how very thankful we need to be — and of God’s faithfulness to the smallest detail in our lives.
In Psalm 71:19-20, the old writer said,
Your righteousness, O God, reaches to the heavens,
You who have done great things;
O God, who is like You?
You who have shown me many troubles and distresses
Will revive me again,
And will bring me up again from the depths of the earth.
God is righteous in everything that He allows in our lives. Every little bit of the life given to each child of God is designed to lead us to a stronger and closer relationship to our LORD and Redeemer. Let us understand that and peacefully accept it in faith.
We will all undoubtedly face “many troubles and distresses” throughout our lives. As hard, stressful, and terrible as it all is, we can be assured that God our Savior “will revive me again”. But, much more than that, when our life has ended, and we are buried, He “will bring me up again from the depths of the earth”.
All God’s faithful will be physically resurrected unto eternal life to spend eternity intimately with our Creator Redeemer. “O God, who is like You?” There simply is no other Lord, God, or mighty one of any sort that can change God’s love, will, and authority with His dear children.
Rejoicing in God’s faithful love, we say, “Hallelujah! LORD, thank You for righteously being trustworthy and faithful in caring for us.”

Pray for our country.
The LORD made this day, let us rejoice and be glad in Him.
The word of the LORD is tried;
He is a shield to all who take refuge in Him.
Sing for joy in the LORD, O you righteous ones;
Praise is becoming to the upright.
How blessed are those who dwell in Thy house!
They are ever praising Thee.
Just as a father has compassion on his children,
So the LORD has compassion on those who fear Him.
O give thanks to the LORD, for He is good;
For His lovingkindness is everlasting.
Glory in His holy name;
Let the heart of those who seek the LORD be glad.
Not that I have already obtained it, or have already become perfect, but I press on in order that I may lay hold of that for which also I was laid hold of by Christ Jesus.
