Day 2: The whole world in His hands…

Isaiah 40:12-20

12 Who has measured the waters in the hollow of his hand,
or with the breadth of his hand marked off the heavens?
Who has held the dust of the earth in a basket,
or weighed the mountains on the scales
and the hills in a balance?
13 Who can fathom the Spirit of the LORD,
or instruct the LORD as his counselor?
14 Whom did the LORD consult to enlighten him,
and who taught him the right way?
Who was it that taught him knowledge,
or showed him the path of understanding?
15 Surely the nations are like a drop in a bucket;
they are regarded as dust on the scales;
he weighs the islands as though they were fine dust.
16 Lebanon is not sufficient for altar fires,
nor its animals enough for burnt offerings.
17 Before him all the nations are as nothing;
they are regarded by him as worthless
and less than nothing.
18 With whom, then, will you compare God?
To what image will you liken him?
19 As for an idol, a metalworker casts it,
and a goldsmith overlays it with gold
and fashions silver chains for it.
20 A person too poor to present such an offering
selects wood that will not rot;
they look for a skilled worker
to set up an idol that will not topple.

Reflection
God is truly great! And there is nothing in all creation that He can be compared to. In fact, everything we see, from the stars in the sky to the waters in the ocean are the very works of His hands. Yet, in the midst of this unfathomable power and glory, God chose us and called us His own. The very One that created the universe, has called us His sons and daughters. What else can we say, how else can we respond but to give Him all praise and honor with all of our lives. Let’s worship the Lord!

Response
Let’s respond by spending some time reflecting on all the things that God has done in our lives, whether it be how He worked through certain situations, or just the fact that He was able to create something as magnificent as the earth. Let’s spend time thanking Him for all that He has done, and will do among us.
