God stands alone. He is a supreme being uncontrolled by any other being, including you. We are at the mercy of His will. We may allow things to get in our way of giving Him the power that He deserves and make other objects or beings our gods, but they are not God! Any power that you allow to rule over your life is a false power unless it is God Almighty. Humans have the tendency to try and assert their own will upon you and push you to do their bidding, but as a follower of Christ, your only ruler is God and your King is Jesus. All efforts by humans to control you will fail if you only give power to our Sovereign God. There is no other true god. He takes counsel from no one. He's the creator not the created. Stand strong against your adversaries, because you stand in the counsel of the Almighty, the ruler of the universe. Discomfort and pain are only momentary, change your focus to eternity.
"Remember this and stand firm, recall it to mind, you transgressors, remember the former things of old; for I am God, and there is no other; I am God, and there is none like me, declaring the end from the beginning and from ancient times things not yet done, saying, 'My counsel shall stand, and I will accomplish all my purpose,' Isaiah 46:8-10
