“All heaven will praise your great wonders, Lord; myriads of angels will praise you for your faithfulness. For who in all of heaven can compare with the Lord? What mightiest angel is anything like the Lord? The highest angelic powers stand in awe of God. He is far more awesome than all who surround His throne. O Lord God of Heaven’s Armies! Where is there anyone as mighty as you, O Lord? You are entirely faithful.” Psalm 89:5-8
There is a village by the name of More Tomorrow in the jungle bush on the banks of the beautiful Belize River. In a very small and old house at village edge once lived a small framed humble gentleman I considered a friend. His face was very wrinkled, almost leathery looking, but not just from age. His was a long difficult life of struggle to provide for he and his family. I had the privilege of seeing him a few times over a few trips to his village and was invited and honored on several occasions to visit his home. Each time he would smile and say, “My friend you have returned.” Once while seated in what we would consider a living room, but couldn’t have measured more than about a 10×10 space, we were talking about how he was getting along and he slowly pointed upward with his crooked and shaking finger and said, “He always takes care of me.”
I was sad when I heard he had passed and I would not be greeted again by his wrinkled but wide and beautiful smile.
All of heavens host along with all of God’s redeemed gathered from the earth’s four corners throughout all the earth’s ages will one day proclaim together there is no one anywhere as mighty and as faithful as our Father, the Lord God Jehovah.
May You, Lord God, Maker and sustainer of the heavens and the earth be honored in worship today. There is no other God, but Yahweh. No other Lord, but Christ Jesus the only Son of God. May You Father, Son, and Holy Spirit be exalted! Amen.
