Who is like you, Lord?


“There is no one like the God of Jeshurun, who rides across the heavens to help you and on the clouds in his majesty…

…The eternal God is your refuge, and underneath are the everlasting arms…

So Israel will live in safety; Jacob will dwell secure in a land of grain and new wine, where the heavens drop dew. Blessed are you, Israel! Who is like you, a people saved by the LORD? He is your shield and helper and your glorious sword. …”

Deuteronomy 33:26,28,29

The short answer is no one. But we need to know the details, because our minds are lazy and remiss about rehearsing the glories of the eternal God. The Scripture says that the eternal God will stop at nothing to help His people. They are His treasure and no sky is wide enough to keep Him from riding to the rescue of His beloved ones.

God Himself is the refuge of His people. Where ever they go, so no matter how high they soar into the heavens, God is right there to bear them up on His mighty arms. None can fall to destruction, or fail to fly high into the unknown blue. None of His children suffer loss that will be restored to them one day. Faith lays hold on this and walks forward in the strength of God.

God is our shield of protection and the ability to fight off all doubt and fear. The sword is with us and as we use it, we are made strong. We are as safe as we would be in the heavenly kingdom already. We rejoice and love in joy, which strengthens our souls. So many blessing and joys that only the forgiven ones know. The blessing of God is real and daily for all those who seek His face and find Him to be their refuge.
