God’s Utter Independence


     The perfection of God places stringent demands upon the limits of human imagination.  Though not impossible, adequately and accurately conceiving of a Being who is self-sufficient and independent in every way is a great challenge.

     To aid us in this task, Asaph recorded the following pronouncement from Jehovah: “I will not take a bull from your house, nor goats out of your folds.  For every beast of the forest is Mine, and the cattle on a thousand hills.  I know all the birds of the mountains, and the wild beasts of the field are Mine.  ‘If I were hungry, I would not tell you; for the world is Mine, and all its fullness’” (Psalm 50:9-12).

     What sovereignty!  What independence!  What a difference between the Most High God and those who populate His footstool!

     “Offer to God thanksgiving and pay your vows to the Most High” (Psalm 50:14).
