Man has limited power that cannot be compared with God’s limitless power. God is greater than us all! Humans have no better option than to reverence God and serve him faithfully. It is, however, unfortunate that some people allow the devil to tempt them into comparing themselves with God. The same action that caused him (Satan) to lose his heavenly honor.
Satan attempted to compare himself with God in heaven; he failed, and God cast him to earth. God also, immediately pronounced on Satan that he would suffer eternal damnation in hellfire. The scripture revealed how Satan compared himself with God in heaven and failed,
“… ‘Thus says the Lord God: “You were the seal of perfection, full of wisdom and perfect in beauty. You were in Eden, the garden of God; Every precious stone was your covering: The sardius, topaz, and diamond, Beryl, onyx, and jasper, Sapphire, turquoise, and emerald with gold. The workmanship of your timbrels and pipes was prepared for you on the day you were created. “You were the anointed cherub who covers; I established you; you were on the holy mountain of God; you walked back and forth in the midst of fiery stones. You were perfect in your ways from the day you were created, till iniquity was found in you. “By the abundance of your trading You became filled with violence within, And you sinned; Therefore I cast you as a profane thing out of the mountain of God; And I destroyed you, O covering cherub, From the midst of the fiery stones. “Your heart was lifted up because of your beauty; You corrupted your wisdom for the sake of your splendor; I cast you to the ground, I laid you before kings, That they might gaze at you” (Ezekiel 28:12-17).
Humans need to submit to God and honor him dearly. We must not equate ourselves with God, but we should rather honor him.
There are many reasons why humans must submit to God and serve him. His goodness has no limits. It can be felt in our peaceful atmosphere, beautiful sunshine, pleasant rainfall, and many other resources. Humans are worthless without God’s support.
Our lives are completely dependent on him! The Creator possesses an autonomous power to do whatever he desires. He has the power to make and destroy anything as he pleases. God has control over us all! We must submit at his feet and honor him.
Jehovah will shower his grace and goodness on any person that recognizes his supremacy and serve him adequately!
Dear God, I am pleased with the fact that you are the God of gods and Lord of lords! You are higher and better than all people. There is no word to express your greatness and supremacy! Please keep me humble to reverence and faithfully serve you every day of my life. Please keep me worthy of your eternal kingdom also. For in the name of Jesus Christ, I make my requests. Amen.
