David wanted to build a house for God, but God would build a house, a dynasty, for David. Greatly humbled and thankful for what God promised David, he spoke a beautiful prayer, part of which included this magnificent declaration about God,

“Therefore You are great, O Lord GOD. For there is none like You, nor is there any God besides You, according to all that we have heard with our ears” (2 Samuel 7.22). 

Our Lord, Yahweh God, is great because no one is like Him, and there is no other God besides Him, which He has demonstrated repeatedly in the things we have heard in Scripture.
