I know that the Lord is great, that our Lord is greater than all gods. Psalm 135:5
Knowledge is something that every person has. Everyone has some knowledge about some things and very little to no knowledge in other things.
In today’s society getting knowledge is easy. However, getting good, true knowledge is something else. One can look online and Google something for some knowledge on subject. With just a few words in the search, millions of hits can come up. Some of those things are true and have to deal with the original thought, while many have nothing to do with the original thought or are false information.
All over the world there are many things looked as the almighty thing to have. If one has fame or wealth, one has it made and is successful. If one follows this group or that person, one has made it.
The psalmist writes that there is one thing he knows. That one thing is God is great, not only just great, but greater than all other gods.
While all the things that the world looks at for success have some good points, there are just temporary and will not last. All of those things are little gods to people. Things that people worship and adore, live their life chasing after.
God is eternal and in control. He is the One who created everything. He is the One who sustains everything. And He is not an ogre, holding everything to Himself, but shares it all with mankind. God is loving and caring.
The things of this world are just that–things. They cannot love or help in themselves. They are not alive. At best they are tools to be used.
God is perfect love and alive. This makes Him greater than anything god this world can offer.
As a believer you must know that God is love and that He IS greater than anything this world has. God can and will meet every need you have. The things of this world will fail and fall short. People will fail and fall short. God will never fail or fall short.
While knowing this in the mind is good, you must also know and believer this in your heart. You must have faith that God is who He says He is and that He really does love you.
This knowledge will give you the strength and ability to make it through every tough situation that this life can give you.
Do you know God?
Or do you know about God?
I pray today that you will have a personal relationship with God; that you will know God in your heart; that you will know God’s love for you; and that you will share knowing God with others.
