I heard a message today from Isaiah 40 on our Great God... on how BIG He is... on how incomprehensible His likeness is...
Above we see God measuring out and calculating the waters, the span of heaven, every speck of dust on earth, and the weight of the mountains!
Isaiah 40:15 "Behold, the nations are as a drop of a bucket, and are counted as the small dust of the balance: behold, He taketh up the isles as a very little thing."
Here, even all the nations, as He sees it, are measured as but a speck of dust, and the islands like a fine dust (as if regular dust wasn't small enough!)!
Isaiah 40:18 "To whom then will ye liken God? or what likeness will ye compare unto Him?"
There is nothing to compare to God. HE IS GOD. There is none bigger, nothing greater. Our minds could never truly fathom this.
But here is the BEST PART:
Isaiah 40:25-31 "To whom then will ye liken me, or shall I be equal? saith the Holy One. Lift up your eyes on high, and behold Who hath created these things, that bringeth out their host by number: He calleth them all by names by the greatness of His might, for that He is strong in power; not one faileth. Why sayest thou,..."My way is hid from the LORD, and my judgment is passed over from my God?" Hast thou not known? Hast thou not heard, that the everlasting God, the LORD, the Creator of the ends of the earth, fainteth not, neither is weary? there is no searching of His understanding. He giveth power to the faint; and to them that have no might He increaseth strength. Even the youths shall faint and be weary, and the young men shall utterly fall: But they that wait upon the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint."
Can I get an Amen?!!?
Our great, mighty, wonderful, huge, omnipotent, omnipresent, miracle-working, immaculate, PERFECT God--that even sees this world as "a speck"--cares about YOU & ME!!! He loves and cares for His people!!
Gives a whole, new meaning to:
Psalm 27:1 "The LORD is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear? the LORD is the strength of my life; of whom shall I be afraid?"
God is amazing and big. Don't lose perspective. No matter what is going on in your life--God is bigger. And He cares. And He will give you all that you need!
Amen! Amen! Amen!
Thank you, Almighty & Gracious God and Father!
