Who Compares with God?
Did any of you measure the ocean by yourself or stretch out the sky with your own hands? Did you put the soil of the earth in a bucket or weigh the hills and mountains on balance scales? Has anyone told the LORD what he must do or given him advice? Did the LORD ask anyone to teach him wisdom and justice? Who gave him knowledge and understanding? To the LORD, all nations are merely a drop in a bucket or dust on balance scales; all of the islands are but a handful of sand. The cattle on Lebanon's mountains would not be enough to offer as a sacrifice to God, and the trees would not be enough for the fire. God thinks of the nations as far less than nothing. Who compares with God? Is anything like him? Is an idol at all like God? It is made of bronze with a thin layer of gold, and decorated with silver. Or special wood may be chosen because it doesn't rot-- then skilled hands take care to make an idol that won't fall on its face. Isa 40:12-20 CEVGod Rules the Whole Earth
Don't you know? Haven't you heard? Isn't it clear that God created the world? God is the one who rules the whole earth, and we that live here are merely insects. He spread out the heavens like a curtain or an open tent. God brings down rulers and turns them into nothing. They are like flowers freshly sprung up and starting to grow. But when God blows on them, they wilt and are carried off like straw in a storm. The holy God asks, "Who compares with me? Is anyone my equal?" Look at the evening sky! Who created the stars? Who gave them each a name? Who leads them like an army? The LORD is so powerful that none of the stars are ever missing. Isa 40:21-26 CEV
The LORD Takes Care of His Creation
I praise you, LORD God, with all
my heart. You are glorious and majestic,
The LORD Gives Strength
You people of Israel, say,
"God pays no attention to us! He doesn't care if we
