People that have encountered Him know He is God and more importantly, He is God of gods. Pharaoh was a god in his day and the sorcerers and magicians would have performed some measure of signs and wonders with the power of other gods. When the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob disgraced the gods of Egypt, it was clear that He is God of all gods. 

The least they could sing from that encounter was, “Who is like unto thee, O Lord, amongst the gods? Who is like thee, glorious in holiness, fearful in praises, doing wonders?” 

When God encountered Hannah and gave her a son that would be established as a prophet in Israel, she worshipped singing,“There is none holy as the LORD: for there is none beside thee: neither is there any rock like our God.” These people worshipped God based on the encounter and revelation they had of Him, they stood in awe of His majesty especially immediately after such encounters.

How these holy men and women described the majesty and awesomeness of God was written in the Bible for our example so that we can get the act of worship correct. Psalm 90:1-2 records a history on the faithfulness of God and the commitment of how far God will still be faithful to His people. Whenever you read your Bible, you will find records of God’s unfailing nature available for you to hold on to. These should normally usher you into Bible-based worship.


PRAYER: Lord, You have been faithful to the saints of old and I thank You because You are committed to showing me Your loving-kindness in my generation; I praise Your holy name.
