Nothing Compares...'s not just a song from the 80's, y'all.

Isaiah 40:12-35 teaches us of God's incomparable power, presence and provision.

He is bigger than a tsunami.
He's in more places than the internet.
His provisions makes Vegas buffets look like a snack cracker.

Ok, that was a silly comparison.  But really aren't they all?

Let's look at a few awesome attributes of our God.

He's Omnipotent - All powerful - Able in every respect for every work.  He is the Creator of the heavens and the earth.  Even the strongest nation or world leader will topple if God were to blow on them.  (Isaiah 40:24)

He's Omnipresent - Everywhere-ness - He is in every place at the same time.  There is no place He isn't.  So those of you who feel you're alone in your own desert: Listen Up!!  You're not alone.  He's there, take a look-see:  (Isaiah 40:26)

He's Omniscient - All knowledge - He knows everything.  How to create a solar system.  Check.  How many hairs on your head.  Check.  Your deepest, darkest secrets, motives, desires.  Check.  (Yikes.)   He knows all of our problems, every joy, He knows our hearts.  Isaiah 40:28

If you're still singing Sinead O'Connor let me help you out here.  There is another song that goes something like this: "You alone I long to worship, You alone are worthy of my praise."  Have you thought, really thought, about that?  God is almighty, all deserving, all worthy of our praise.

In the Old Testament there were folks that worshiped idols.  Objects made of silver and gold or even wood.  Seems silly, right?  Let's see - we can worship the Creator of the moon and stars or... this statue of a calf! 

We would never fall for that, right? 

What or who are you worshiping today?
Family.  Friends.  Education.  Security.  Safety.  Work.  Rest.  Eeksters.

Ok, time for some more good news!

*If you've received Christ into your life and repented for your sins, you are FORGIVEN. 

God's forgiveness strengthens His people.  He strengthens us so that we can prepare the way for His return. He is true to His word.  He alone is our comfort.  This assurance of forgiveness and peace that comes from God is a gift.  We are still His in spite of our sin.  He is bigger than anything we can imagine and His love for us is immeasurable.

It is time to declare His glory with a shout! Praise be to God!!!

*If you had any hesitation in your heart PLEASE GO here.

God bless y'all,
