“O LORD God of hosts, who is mighty as you are, O LORD, with your faithfulness all around you?” (Psalm 89:8, ESV). The eighty-ninth psalm continues its exultation of God Almighty. He has blessed His people in their king (vv.2-4), He is the God of incomparable glory (vv.5-7). In this eighth verse, the power of God is extolled in tandem with His unfailing reliability. Who is like God? Of course, the answer is, there is no one like Him.
To our incomparable God we look for strength and joy, for hope and salvation. In His power and love we may anchor our spirits against every storm of life. This wonderful combination, that God is incontestably mighty and that He is loving and faithful to His people, should draw from our hearts both comfort in trials and worship to our King. May the mercy and might of the Lord be your strength and joy.
