The Attributes of God
God is solitary in His Excellency. God is uniquely alone in His character and nature. There is no other god equal to God; therefore God is single or solitary in His nature and character. God is the only being which everlastingly existed, everlastingly exists, and everlastingly will exist in His uniquely divine character.
Therefore, God has eternally been self-contained, self-sufficient, and self-satisfied. God has never been in need of anything nor has God ever lacked anything. There can be nothing neither added nor subtracted from the essential nature of God. God does not change (immutability). As the Scripture states, there are no other gods like God.
Exodus 15:11 – “Who is like unto Thee, O Lord, among the gods? Who is like Thee, glorious in holiness, fearful in praises, doing wonders?”
Deuteronomy 3:24 – “O Lord God, you have only begun to show your servant your greatness and your mighty hand, For what god is thee in heave or on earth who can do such works and might acts as yours.” (ESV)
Deuteronomy 33:26 – “There is none like God, O Jeshurun, who rides through the heavens to your help.” (ESV)
Psalms 86:8 – “There is none like you among the gods, O Lord, nor are there any works like yours.” (ESV)
Solitariness is the term that we use to help us understand that God is uniquely distinct from any other being or entity. There is no one, nothing, nor every will be like as or the same as God in quality or character.
Since there is no other gods like God, He is to be reverenced and worshipped in accordance with His character and nature. We do not make up the rules and means of worship but our worship is borne out of his very solitary and unique character. God is not to be trifled with nor treated as less than his unique and solitary character demands. God is not like us nor should he be treated like us.
So, what is your response to the solitariness of God?
