Isaiah 40:12-13 – of measuring

“Who has measured the waters in the hollow of his hand and marked off the heavens with a span, enclosed the dust of the earth in a measure and weighed the mountains in scales and the hills in a balance?

Who has measured the Spirit of the LORD, or what man shows him his counsel?” – Isaiah 40:12-13 ESV

I am 20 pages into, “None like Him,” by Jen Wilkin. It is reminiscent of “Knowledge of the Holy,” by A.W. Tozer, an all-time favorite of mine.

I haven’t been able to stop thinking about Wilkin’s words, “Who has measured everything? God has. Who has measured God? No one.” Let that sink into your heart and mind.

I must accept that, like all of God’s creations, I have limits, and boundaries, places I cannot reach. I cannot be two places at once. I cannot hear a thousand distinct voices at once. I cannot accomplish a multitude of different tasks at once.

But, God can. And He does.

God is without limit, infinite, immeasurable.

And, yet, He loves us. And, yet, He loves ME. He enters into time and space to show His love and goodness to His finite creation.

And all that I can do in response is praise Him.

Would you praise Him with me?
