“O LORD God of Hosts, who is a strong LORD like unto Thee? Or to Thy faithfulness round about Thee?” (Psalm 89:8).
How majestic and awesome is the Lord our God! The Psalmist acknowledges that the Lord is the God of Heavenly Armies. He is the God of Hosts. He asks the question, “Who is a strong LORD like You, O LORD God of Armies?” With such a lofty view of this LORD comes also appreciation for His faithfulness. BethAnne really needed this reminder. She had been crying for much of the morning. Her emotions ranged from anger to disbelief to shock and horror. An accusation had been made against her by a fellow employee of the grocery market in which she was employed. She had been accused of stealing several packages of steaks from the meat department. Her employer asked her to stay home until he was able to resolve this. She was beside herself. She avowed her innocence to her supervisor. Now in her fretting, she picked up her Bible and came to Psalm 89 in her reading. “I wish I would have picked my Bible up much earlier in the day,” she thought to herself. The phone call from her boss exonerated her. Little did her accuser know but security footage clearly showed that it wasn’t BethAnne who had stolen the meat. She once again discovered that there is no one strong like the LORD or nothing to be compared with His faithfulness.
For today: In what ways today will you rejoice in the faithfulness of your awesome LORD God of Hosts?
