Among the gods there is none like You, O Lord; Nor are there any works like Your works.~ Psalm 86:8 (NKJV)
As we continue our brief exposition of this Psalm of prayer, in verse 8 we find David exalting God above all the other gods of this world. To be sure there are many false gods and religions in the world today. And millions of people place their trust in these so-called deities. Here the Psalmist lifts up and praises the true and living God among all the false gods of this world.
For among all the gods of this world, Jehovah God, the God of Holy Scripture, is the only One who can hear our prayers and deliver us from trouble. As it pertains to our prayers, an idol of wood, rock or stone cannot respond to the supplications of a people. Those who ultimately place their trust in anything short of the Lord God will find their hopes sorely disappointed.
Yet, the child of God who brings his petitions to the Lord, he can know there is a throne of grace which is always accessible to him; while to others there is none. There is One to whom he may always come in prayer; while others, they sadly cry out in vain. As we bring our prayers to God, let us remember He is the living God. He is not like the false gods and idols of a worldly making. He will hear you. May we believe about God, in faith, saying there is none like You.

1 John 2:15-17
15 Do not love the world or the things in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him. 16 For all that is in the world—the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life—is not of the Father but is of the world. 17 And the world is passing away, and the lust of it; but he who does the will of God abides forever.
There is hope in God where there is hope in no other. I pray we become Christians who do not become obsessed with the things of this world, but to always put God first and foremost in our lives and trust in Him, knowing He is like no other.

Great thought. I’m reminded of the chorus from an old hymn:
Turn you eyes upon Jesus,
Look full in His wonderful face,
And the things of earth will grow strangely dim,
In the light of His glory and grace.
