Job 38:33 (KJV) 33Knowest thou the ordinances of heaven? canst thou set the dominion thereof in the earth?
Not even the most intellectual individual or group can fully know the governing ordinances or laws of the universe. How much more when it comes to understanding how this unfathomable universe can somehow affect the earth in such an effective and beautiful way.
We humbly recognize and accept our limitations and we gratefully acknowledge the greatness of our God. We may not fully understand His ways, but creation alone—especially the incomprehensible vastness of the universe convinces us of the majesty of our creator. We have questions. The answers are always available. We won’t grasp all of them. The volume of truth available is way more than our ability to contain it.
Dear God, there are things in life we won’t completely understand. Help us Lord to come to grips with this reality in faith-filled abandonment. We won’t completely grasp the ins and outs of every situation, but we can completely trust You. You’re definitely way much bigger than any situation, problem, question, or need we have or will encounter. You’re our God Who’s more than enough. Because of the limitations of our comprehension, we may not have all the answers, but at least we understand why we can honestly declare with David: “The Lord is my Shepherd, I shall not want.” With the little we know about You and Your creation, we see the wisdom of surrendering ourselves to You, and also the reason why we Your people can honestly, humbly, and gratefully declare: “Not to us, oh Lord, but to Your Name be glory.”
Isaiah 40:25 (KJV) To whom then will ye liken me, or shall I be equal? saith the Holy One.
No one compares with God; no one is His equal. Whatever angle we look at, whatever category, whatever area, He is infinitely set apart. He’s the only true living God. Aside from Him, there is no other. He is Holy; He is High and lifted up; He’s also close to us, and He cares tremendously for us.
God is absolutely awesome. He never fades, never weakens, and never dies. He’s our creator and sustainer. What power! He keeps the universe in order; He manages this world; He takes great care of you and me. His Son came as a really great additional proof of all these. He is the exact representation of Who He is. Through His sinless life, sacrificial death, and victorious resurrection, we see God’s holiness, power, wisdom, and love very clearly.
We look at the sun, the moon, the stars; we see majesty. We look at the ocean, the mountains, the flowers; we see beauty. We look at the mother, the father, the baby; we see love. God is the ultimate expression of all these. His majesty far transcends the universe; His beauty far transcends all the flowers of the field; His love far transcends all our human love. The one true God is Holy; there is no evil or sin in Him. We understand why we have innate sense of good and evil. This is true to all of us. God is all-powerful; He is the Creator. We’re not at lost as to how everything existed out of nothing. God is all-wise; He is responsible for the order we see all around; we’re not worried about the planets colliding on each other. God is all-loving. He gave us His beloved Son; now we are saved; now, anyone can be saved.
