Print Friendly, PDF & Email
For what God is there in heaven or in earth, that can do according to thy works, and according to thy might?" is from 2 Chronicles 6:14 and speaks to the uniqueness and unparalleled power of God. 

Here are some King James Version (KJV) Bible verses that convey themes of God’s unmatched sovereignty and power:

  1. Isaiah 45:5-6: “I am the LORD, and there is none else, there is no God beside me: I girded thee, though thou hast not known me: That they may know from the rising of the sun, and from the west, that there is none beside me. I am the LORD, and there is none else.”
  2. Deuteronomy 4:35: “Unto thee it was shewed, that thou mightest know that the LORD he is God; there is none else beside him.”
  3. 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?”
  4. Psalm 86:8: “Among the gods there is none like unto thee, O Lord; neither are there any works like unto thy works.”
  5. Jeremiah 10:6: “Forasmuch as there is none like unto thee, O LORD; thou art great, and thy name is great in might.”
  6. 1 Kings 8:23: “And he said, LORD God of Israel, there is no God like thee, in heaven above, or on earth beneath, who keepest covenant and mercy with thy servants that walk before thee with all their heart.”
  7. Psalm 113:5: “Who is like unto the LORD our God, who dwelleth on high?”
These verses emphasize the unparalleled nature of God. In various ways, they all express the idea that there's no other entity in heaven or on earth that can match God's power, deeds, and greatness.
