Psalm 139 is not a psalm about me, fearfully and wonderfully made. It is a psalm about my Maker, fearful and wonderful. It is a psalm to inspire awe.

None Like Him is a study about knowing God. “Know that I am God and so that you may worship me.” It is in worship that we truly love others and God is revealed in his majesty. It is when we are in awe of the God and what he has done, we put the focus off our selves. So how do we get there? Jen Wilken brings us to the basics of who God is. Have you thought about your limitations? Do you know God’s limitations and what they mean. It starts by knowing God is not measurable. It is about how much we desire to measure to have control. We limited humans are lovers of measurement; we number and county, quantify and track Because of our limits and our believe that we are limitless, we strife against our maker.

The 10 different ways that God is different is life changing to the one who embraces these changes. When embracing the 10 different ways, we actually live and worship God in truth. I so appreciate Jen Wilkin’s teaching. She is solid and she puts the focus on who God is. I just addressed one the ways that God is different but each one progresses to the next one. It starts by addressing our limitations and that God is not measurable. That we cannot control Him. He is faithful is his own holy attributes. Each chapter starts with a quote and in a conversational tone, she leads the reader to the throne of God. You can’t help but worship him. That is what I want.

A Special Thank You to Crossway and Netgalley for the ARC and the opportunity to post honest review.
