OUR AWESOME GOD!
A voice says, “Cry!” And I said, “What shall I cry?” All flesh is grass, and all its beauty is like the flower of the field. The grass withers, the flower fades when the breath of the LORD blows on it; surely the people are grass. The grass withers, the flower fades, but the word of our God will stand forever… Who has measured the waters in the hollow of his hand and marked off the heavens with a span, enclosed the dust of the earth in a measure and weighed the mountains in scales and the hills in a balance? Who has measured the Spirit of the LORD, or what man shows him his counsel? Whom did he consult, and who made him understand? Who taught him the path of justice, and taught him knowledge, and showed him the way of understanding? Behold, the nations are like a drop from a bucket, and are accounted as the dust on the scales; behold, he takes up the coastlands like fine dust. Lebanon would not suffice for fuel, nor are its beasts enough for a burnt offering. All the nations are as nothing before him, they are accounted by him as less than nothing and emptiness. To whom then will you liken God, or what likeness compare with him?… It is he who sits above the circle of the earth, and its inhabitants are like grasshoppers; who stretches out the heavens like a curtain, and spreads them like a tent to dwell in; who brings princes to nothing, and makes the rulers of the earth as emptiness… Have you not known? Have you not heard? The LORD is the everlasting God, the Creator of the ends of the earth. He does not faint or grow weary; his understanding is unsearchable. He gives power to the faint, and to him who has no might he increases strength. Even youths shall faint and be weary, and young men shall fall exhausted; but they who wait for the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings like eagles; they shall run and not be weary; they shall walk and not faint. —Isaiah 40:6-8; 12-18; 22-23; 28-31
Can you say AWESOME! That is Who God is— AWESOME! He is AWESOME in His Character and He is AWESOME in all that He does. His very NAME is AWESOME! This is the One who loves us so much that His only Son came to this sin infested, fallen planet that we might know Him now and be with Him forever. He does not take pleasure in the death of the wicked. He does not want people to perish in eternal Hell. That is why Jesus came! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pYZw0dfLmLk
People are puny. They offer God no knowledge or understanding. Nations are as a drop of water in a bucket or as dust on a scale. All nations before Him are nothing. They are counted as less than nothing and just emptiness. Men are like grasshoppers before Him. He brings princes to nothing and makes rulers of the earth as emptiness. Starting to get a picture of the vast divide between God and man?
His Word lasts forever, we are but a moment. He knows the exact size of the heavens and the exact amount of dust on the earth. He knows the weight of the mountains and hills. He has perfect knowledge, understanding and justice. The Creator of the heavens and earth does not grow weary. His understanding is unsearchable. He it is that gives strength to the weary and faint. Yes, our God is an AWESOME God. Rejoice in knowing Him. Rejoice in serving Him. Rejoice that we will be with Him forever. REJOICE!
Dear Father I do rejoice in Your AWESOMENESS. Who am I that You would even take notice of me? I am gratefully and may I serve You in the power of Your Holy Spirit and in the authority of Your Son, Jesus. So be it! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=38V8jnN1Kpw
