God is transcendent.
We must not think of God as highest in an order of beings.
This would be to grant Him eminence, even pre-eminence, but this is not enough.
He is transcendent—existing beyond the created universe.
God is higher than anything and anyone,
outshining everything you can see in the skies.
Who can compare with God, our God,
so majestically enthroned,
Surveying his magnificent
heavens and earth?
He picks up the poor from out of the dirt,
rescues the wretched who’ve been thrown out with the trash,
Seats them among the honored guests,
a place of honor among the brightest and best.
He gives childless couples a family,
gives them joy as the parents of children.
