Isaiah 40: Who can tell God?
Posted by adventbiblestudy on August 12, 2011
(Isaiah 40:12) Who hath measured the waters in the hollow of his hand, and meted out heaven with the span, and comprehended the dust of the earth in a measure, and weighed the mountains in scales, and the hills in a balance
How can I measure God’s creation? I have not seen 1% of His wonderful works. I can not imagine the expanse of the universe He has created. I can only imagine the wonderful worlds He has created. God knows and remembers everything He has created. He knows the weight of the mountains, and all the treasures, and beauty they hold. God knows every rolling hill, every blade of grass, the view and splendor of every sunrise, and sunset. God knows and remembers me. I am a special part of His creation.
(Isaiah 40:13) Who hath directed the Spirit of the LORD, or being his counsellor hath taught him?
I can not direct the will of God, or make Him work His wonders in my time frame. I can not direct the steps of God, or others. I can not teach God, or offer Him advise. I can not give God choices, and expect Him to bless me. I can only remember the times God has blessed me beyond all imagination, and know He will bless me again.
(Isaiah 40:14) With whom took he counsel, and who instructed him, and taught him in the path of judgment, and taught him knowledge, and shewed to him the way of understanding?
I can never expect to show or teach God anything. I can not tell God anything He does not already know, and has already seen for Himself. I can not expect God to work things out the way I think will satisfy me. My prayers need to be open, and God will be honest with me. God’s understanding, knowledge, and judgment exceed mine. God sees so many things I do not see. God knows the hearts of people, and will judge them accordingly. I have to leave justice in the hands of God. God’s wisdom exceeds all understanding.
