There is No One Like You

But my dove, my perfect one, is unique, the only daughter of her mother, the favorite of the one who bore her. (Song of Solomon 6:9)

I was just now listening to a song called There is No One Like You. The woman was singing to God, praising Him and saying that there is truly no one like him, on the earth or the sky. "Teach me your ways, oh God, that I might walk in your truth..." For God is the one we should look to for an example. There is no one like Him (and yet our endeavor is to become more Christlike every day. We will never be perfect on earth, but we should do our best).

But the focus of this isn't on having to set aside ourselves and taking on the mantle of Christ. For just a moment, read that scripture up top again. The Bible is God's love song to his people, and it is more evident in Song of Solomon if you imagine God as the bridegroom and His people as the bride.

What is He saying about us then? That we are all of us unique. We were all created differently from each other. Why? Because there is no one like God, so should there be no one like you or me. We are made in His image, after all.

God delights in us, the way that Solomon delighted in his bride. When he looked at her, he saw no one else. Because she was unique, and she was his beloved.

We are unique, and we are God's beloved.

There is no one like you, and that's just the way God designed it to be.
