Our God

Today for our music devotional we’ll look at Our God by Chris Tomlin.

Water You turned into wine
Opened the eyes of the blind
There’s no one like you
None like you
Into the darkness You shine
Out of the ashes we rise
There’s No one like you
None like you
The first verse points to miracles of Jesus (John 2.1-11, 9.1-7). When we see miracles in the Bible we are supposed to react with awe, with wonder, with amazement, with thoughts like There’s no one like you, none like you
Jesus is so often described as the light of the world, a term He referred to Himself with in John 8.12. When this light shines into our lives, when we begin to live in this life, we are a new creation (2 Corinthians 5.17), and we begin to be transformed (Romans 12.2) from the inside out, little by little into the image of God’s beloved Son. 
The chorus is a triumphant declaration that we can all benefit from saying and singing. Reminding ourselves of foundational truths about God such as this is never a bad thing, and to offer these truths up as worship is also in line with what worship should be.
God is great (Jeremiah 10.6), God is strong (Proverbs 18.10), God is so far higher than anyone or anything else (Isaiah 55.8-9), God is a God of healing, both physical and spiritual (Psalm 147.3), and He is truly awesome in power (Psalm 147.5).
Our God is greater, our God is stronger
God You are higher than any other
Our God is Healer, awesome in power
Our God, Our God
And if Our God is for us, then who could ever stop us?
And if our God is with us, then what can stand against?
Then what can stand against?
Singing Scripture is always good, worshiping with Scripture is always good, and Romans 8.31 is a great Scripture to sing.
Paul asks the question that we sing here, and he is absolutely right, if God is for us, what can stand against? 
The if is taken care of by faith in Jesus.
God is for those who have faith in Jesus.
