“The Uniqueness of God”
“But He is the only God. Who can come against Him? He does anything He wants. He will do to me what He said He would do, and He has many plans like this. Job 23:13-14
Job was an upright, godly man, whom God allowed to be tested by Satan. In Satan’s testing of Job, Job lost ALL he had, and at one point in time Job thought to confront God, but after very careful consideration of his situation and the AWESOMENESS of the God of the Universe, Job reconsidered, after all who can counter God? Who can come against the ALMIGHTY? Who can come against the One who can snap His fingers and this WHOLE UNIVERSE could vanish.
There is NOBODY who is as POWERFUL or who possesses the UNIQUENESS of the LORD God Almighty. The one who is in control of EVERYTHING. And if He so desired could DESTROY EVERYTHING with a swipe of His MIGHTY HAND. He is in a class all its own. There is NOBODY or NOTHING that you can ever come close to comparing Him to.
Job states that God does ANYTHING He wants. He is the SOVEREIGN RULER of this Universe and EVERYTHING in it. He is AWARE of EVERYTHING that happens, and it is His creation, so He will do WHATEVER He wants to do. And we should be VERY THANKFUL that He is the PATIENT, COMPASSIONATE God that He is.
Job says, that God WILL do to him what He said He would do. Another UNIQUE attribute of God is, that WHATEVER He says He will do, He does it, maybe not in our time frame, but in His. He is ALL KNOWING and He KNOWS what’s best for each of His children. His promises are TRUE and will be carried out in accordance to His will. EVERYTIME we are put to a test, He allows it in order to help us be more like His Son, the Lord Jesus Christ. And if we remain FAITHFUL, we will come through the test, being REFINED as PURE GOLD. He has MANY PLANS for each of His children, ALL of them for their GROWTH and the STABILITY of their FAITH.
If you are NOT a TRUE BELIEVER, in other words, if you have NOT given your HEART and LIFE to God, I want you to know that He has plans for you too. If you continue to REJECT His Son, Jesus Christ, His plan for you is an ETERNITY in Hell, the place of torment, torture, pain, agony, heartache, and despair, with NO WAY of ESCAPE, However, if you will ACCEPT His Son, and come to Him with a TRUE REPENTANT HEART, and CONFESS your sins to Him, asking Him for His FORGIVENESS, BELIEVING, with ALL your HEART, that Jesus died for YOU, and is ALIVE in Heaven, making intercession for you, then He will give you His gift of SALVATION and you can POSSESS His PROMISE of ETERNAL LIFE in Heaven. Do it NOW, while you still can. He’s waiting and coming SOON!!!
