Thought for the Lord’s Day

Posted on April 21, 2013 · Posted in Uncategorized

God Is God and there is none other!

 

Which God did you worship today? The One spoken of in Isaiah or the one that you thought would do what you wanted?

 

“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[d] of the Lord,
    or instruct the Lord as his counselor?

 

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.”
