Nothing Compares

"Nothing Compares"
By Zach Wood
Psalm 86:8-10
Among the gods there is none like you, O Lord; no deeds can compare with yours.  All the nations you have made will come and worship before you, O Lord; they will bring glory to your name.  For you are great and do marvelous deeds; you alone are God.

Each of us have times when we discover something that becomes a favorite to us.  Each of us has a favorite pizza.  Each of us has a favorite flavor of ice cream.  Each of us has a favorite place to go and shop for clothes.  Each of us has a favorite place to vacation.  Each of us has a favorite restaurant we enjoy making repeated visits to.  Each of us has a favorite CD we like to listen to.  Each of us has a favorite beverage.  

These things are special to us.  We remember them.  No matter what other pizza, ice cream, CD or store we go to, nothing seems to compare to what our favorite is.  There is just nothing like our favorite.

When I read this passage in Psalm, I cannot help but think how there is no other god except the true Living God Who gives us the best life we could ever hope to live.  Many of us have tried so many different ways of living.  We try to live this way or that way and we just want to live a life that is like no other.  We try following people and how they live, but the truth is, once we discover Who God is and learn of His marvelous deeds, nothing quite compares to anyone else.  There are no other gods we could live for and experience what we do when we follow and live for the One True God. 

There is only One True God.  Nothing can compare to Him.  I am so thankful that I can worship a God Who loves me unconditionally, Who gives me another chance when I mess up again and again, Who comforts me when I am falling apart in my life.  This is a God Whom I want to serve.  I do not desire to serve anyone else.  There is no other god who could love me, guide me and direct me.  Bottom line, there is no other true and living God.  There is only One who came to die on a Cross and is real and living.  I am so thankful I serve a God who is the Real Thing. 

Nothing compares to the One True Living God.
