Psalm 89:6 (NKJV)

For who in the heavens can be compared to the Lord?

Who among the sons of the mighty can be likened

to the Lord?

Bible Commentary

Psalm 89:6 is a Bible verse that asks a question which reveals the wonder of God’s absolute reign.

There are many reasons why people don’t see the beauty and splendor of God’s righteous sovereignty. We resist this amazing truth because:

·         Our perception of God tends to be like that of our earthly father, which might not have been a positive one.

·         The selfishness of human nature (our flesh).

·         The curse upon the earth, which removed God’s protective glory from us.

·         The devil’s arsenal of weapons used against us.

·         Ignorance of the truth in God’s Word.

·         General lack of knowledge about the existence of God.

Because of these things, our thoughts, feelings and desires are skewed—skewed due to our selfishness and/or because of the powerful influence of evil. We form opinions based on our values and experience, which are influenced by both good and evil.

In these last days (end times), there is a powerful spirit at work. The antichrist has stirred up hatred, greed, envy and the like hoping to recover territory in a war he is losing. There is an air of desperation to hang on to any kind of victory, which is fueled by an intense fear of loss.

Psalm89-6

This air of desperation is reflected upon us. We see it in a struggle for power, which could be something as small as who won a baseball game or as big as a national political election.

Sides are formed and the game begins. The casualties of this kind of war are usually the human ego—the pride of life.

1 john 2:16-17 says, “For all that is in the world—the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life—is not of the Father but is of the world. 17 And the world is passing away, and the lust of it; but he who does the will of God abides forever.

Ask yourself, “Who is it that I want to win, and why?” Who do you want to get the glory? Stop for a moment and get down to the truth.

Unlocking the Truth - Who are You Rooting For?

David said in Psalm 89:6,

For who in the heavens can be compared to the Lord?
Who among the sons of the mighty can be likened to the Lord?

Who is it that really deserves all the glory?

The Lord is the only One Who deserves the glory, whether it’s a baseball game or a political election. But are we rooting for Him?

Jesus Christ is the King of kings and Lord of lords. He gave His life as a ransom to save you and me, and yet His name is the one that has been drug through the mud for more than 2,000 years. (As Christians, we endure the same persecution.)

Our passion for a win should be for His Name, not our own. What amazing contentment, peace and joy we could have if we would only step back and allow Him entry into our passions.

Not only would He get the honor He so rightfully deserves, but we would be the benefactors of a great revelation of His glory.

Then we all win.

Study the Bible verse of Psalm 89:6 to know the splendor of God’s sovereignty.
