Simply Unexplainable

"Who has measured the waters in the hollow of His hand, Measured heaven with a span And calculated the dust of the earth in a measure? Weighed the mountains in scales And the hills in a balance? Who has directed the Spirit of the LORD, Or as His counselor has taught Him? With whom did He take counsel, and who instructed Him, And taught Him in the path of justice? Who taught Him knowledge, And showed Him the way of understanding?”
Isaiah 40:12-14

Who are we to question His authority? To question His sovereign rule over us? Have we the knowledge to weigh out the dust that covers the earth? Or calculate the span of the heavens?

Of course not! Then why are we so quick to tell God Most High how to rule the works of His hand? Why is He even mindful of us? How dare we speak to Him with counsel and instruction. He raises up kings, He brings to nothing the prideful, He shows mercy on the broken and grace to the weak. By the greatness of His might and the strength of His power we are brought forth in righteousness! Oh the depth of His understanding is unsearchable.

May the Creator of the ends of the earth renew our strength and ordain every footstep according to His plan and not ours! May we let His wisdom reorder our priorities and change our perspectives. May we not judge His word but rather let His word judge us.
