God's Greatness

 

"To whom, then, will you compare God?"

~Isaiah 40:18~

The prophet Isaiah is considered by many to be one of the greatest of the "writing prophets." In the book which bears his name are a number of similarities to the entire Bible itself. For instance, there are 66 books in the word of God, 39 Old Testament, and 27 New Testament.

Isaiah has 66 chapters, the first 39 of them deal with Old Testament material, while the last 27 contain New Testament information. There are some who say the book was not written by Isaiah alone, but he is the only author mentioned...(see ch. 1:1, 2:1).

One of the most beautiful, yet sorrowful chapters is (Isaiah 53). Here, the prophet foretells of the life and death of Jesus Christ, some 700 years prior to His birth. To read it is to drink in the touching love which both the Father and the Son have for all mankind.

However, another treasure among the scriptures in this book is found in Isaiah chapter 40. Herein lies a compelling declaration of the glory and power of the Lord our God. If a person wanders about just how mighty God is, read this chapter!

As an example, I've selected a few verses which speak directly to this point. Read with me as we look at some passages, beginning with (Isaiah 40: 10, 12-15). Here it says:

"See, the Sovereign Lord comes with power, and his arm rules for him. See, his reward is with him, and his recompense accompanies him. 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 has understood the mind of the Lord, or instructed him as his counselor? Whom did the Lord consult to enlighten him, and who taucht him the right way? Who was it that taught him knowledge or showed him the path of understanding?" 

The next time we may feel the Lord is not around, or isn't in charge of everything in the heavens and on earth, remember these word from Isaiah.There is nothing, nor anyone, which is equal to the King of kings and Lord of lords!
