There is only one God Who is worthy of all worship, adoration and praise, though there are many little “g” gods among us. In Guatemala, I visited places where sacrifices were made to Mayan gods. On a single plot of land In Cambodia, I saw various sized temples, now crumbling in ruins, built for the worship of over a hundred different gods.
With so much affluence in Canada, the god of materialism can be seen everywhere. We erroneously ignore The Giver “of every good and perfect gift” while idolizing the gifts instead. Even as Christians, we can easily become self-sufficient, self-appointed gods of our own making — knowing God but marching to our own drum beat. Even areas of ministry can take precedent over relationship with God. Doing things for God can unintentionally become more important than the worship of Him.
I have to frequently stop — purposefully re-evaluate my priorities. It is beneficial to allow the Holy Spirit to do a serious internal investigation of the motivations of my heart. Am I alone or do others struggle to keep God in first place?
Is God worthy of all worship, adoration and praise? Absolutely! No one and nothing else comes close to who He is!
Have you ever tried to describe the indescribable?
Or compare the incomparable!
God’s love is immeasurable and His ways incomprehensible!
“He is before all things, and in him all things hold together.”
He is the Creator and Sustainer of all that was made.
There is only One inhabiting heaven’s throne,
far above all rule, authority, power and dominion —
He is the King exalted over every other king.
But contrary to all others,
“His kingdom will never end!”
Rulers can’t stop Him,
armies can’t defeat Him,
kings, queens, dictators and prime ministers
can’t legislate Him away!
He is God — the only God —
worthy of all worship, adoration and praise.
God Above All Gods!
“His incomparable great power”
makes every impossibility possible when He steps into the scene.
The earth shakes and mountains tremble at the sound of His voice.
The Lion of the Tribe of Judah roars
defending and protecting His own.
Righteousness and justice form the foundation of His throne
love and faithfulness go before Him.
“As the heavens are higher than the earth,
so are (His) ways higher than (our) ways
and (His) thoughts than (our) thoughts.“
He is Savior, and Shepherd of our souls,
Redeemer, Provider and Deliverer,
our Refuge, Fortress, and Shield.
He is Light and Salvation,
Peace in the midst of any and every storm,
the Anchor that holds us steadfast,
our Righteousness and our Strength,
our Healer and Hope
— leading us into all hope and
giving us a glorious inheritance.
“For from him and through him and for him are all things.
To him be the glory forever!”
He neither sleeps nor slumbers,
never growing tired or weary!
His understanding no one can fathom!
“…Who then can understand the thunder of his power?”
He formed each one in the womb,
setting us apart and appointing us for His purpose!
His plans are always for good
— never for evil!
“I am the Alpha and the Omega,” says the Lord God,
“who is, and who was, and who is to come,
The holy, magnificent, glorious One
who inhabits his holy temple where
He observes everyone on earth;
his eyes examine them.”
Not to punish or execute judgement,
but rather to reward
those who seek Him with all their hearts,
with the tender eye of a good Father,
and sheltering continuously
with passionate care.
“Who can hide in secret places
so that I shall not see them? declares the Lord.
Do not I fill heaven and earth? declares the Lord.”
“For this is what the high and exalted One says —
he who lives forever, whose name is holy:
“I live in a high and holy place,
but also with the one who is contrite and lowly in spirit,
to revive the spirit of the lowly
and to revive the heart of the contrite.”
Do you love and know the ways of
this One who is worthy of all worship, adoration and praise?
All Knowing God
Awesome beyond measure!
The intelligence of man is but foolishness to God.
The foolishness of God is wiser
than the collective wisdom of all generations.
He is absolutely brilliant!
He makes known all things and
is the Source of all knowledge and
“Where could I go from your Spirit?
Where could I run and hide from your face?
If I go up to heaven, you’re there!
Or if I go down to the realm of the dead, you’re there too!
If I fly with wings into the shining dawn, you’re there!
If I fly into the radiant sunset, you’re there waiting!“
He is God. There is none beside Him.
No one comes close to the magnificence of who He is.
To God, the end is as clear as the beginning,
for He alone is outside the constraints of time.
“I say, ‘My purpose will stand,
and I will do all that I please.’ ”
“The Everlasting God, the LORD,
the Creator of the ends of the earth
Does not become weary or tired.
His understanding is inscrutable.”
Though finite minds cannot understand Him,
He makes Himself known
revealing Himself in the expanse of the skies
and the tiniest micro-organism
in the depth of the ocean.
The God I Worship
But let’s get personal! I know Him as
always available and accessible,
with arms of incomparable strength opened wide.
He never grows impatient by my endless questions,
or pushes me away in disdain.
He is compassionate and gracious
beyond anything I deserve.
He knows my pain and holds my tears.
His eyes are an ocean of peace
and a flame of fierce unending love.
Not one prayer falls to the ground — unheard or unnoticed.
His compassion is big enough to embrace the broken,
restore the outcast,
and seek the lost.
He is joy in the midst of sorrow and
comfort in the darkest hour of night.
When I awake each morning, I ask, “Is God worthy of all worship, adoration and praise?” The answer never changes, “Yes Lord! You, and You alone, are worthy!”
God will not give His glory to another.
No other is worthy!
He is bigger than any could imagine.
His mercy and grace surpasses
He loves more, best and always,
no matter who we are or
how we’ve failed Him.
Though at times, we might disappoint or frustrate Him,
He will never leave or forsake us.
Everything He does is perfectly good,
because good and perfect is who He is.
But He is so much more!
There is always more of God, this One,
who is, and always will be,
worthy of all worship,
adoration and praise.
