‘To whom will you compare me? Who is my equal?’ asks the Holy One. Look up into the heavens. Who created all the stars? He brings them out like an army, one after another, calling each by its name. Because of his great power and incomparable strength, not a single one is missing. The Lord is the everlasting God, the Creator of all the earth. He never grows weak or weary. No one can measure the depths of his understanding. (Isaiah 40:25, 26, 28)
These passages describe God’s greatness, limitlessness, and renders its readers with little thought beyond humility, awe, and the call to worship.
It is humbling to realize we are nothing and deserve nothing. Humbling when we realize God has chosen to love us and made a way for us to experience his good grace and favor through Christ. Humbling to realize he alone provides us with strength, protection, and the resources to do his will.
Left to our own means, approaching God is impossible, but love, mercy, and grace through Christ provided a place for us at our heavenly Father’s table.
You give strength to the weak and powerless. Those who trust in you will find new strength. They will soar high on wings like eagles. They will run and not grow weary, walk and not faint. You, Lord, have no equal. You are the Lord of all. Amen.
“Our Father in heaven, may your name be kept holy.”
