When you feel the walls pressing in or the world getting too tight and complicated, it helps to realise God’s majesty afresh. So pause with Pastor Louis today to focus on our God, who is great and for us.
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?
Who can fathom the Spirit of the Lord,
or instruct the Lord as his counsellor?
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?
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.
Lebanon is not sufficient for altar fires,
nor its animals enough for burnt offerings.
– Isaiah 40:12-16 (NIVUK)
