Oh, How Mighty is My God

24 Feb

So to whom will you compare me, the Incomparable?
Can you picture me without reducing me? Isaiah 46:5 The Message

Think about this. Wrap your minds around it.
This is serious business, rebels. Take it to heart.
Remember your history,
your long and rich history.
I am God, the only God you’ve had or ever will have—
incomparable, irreplaceable—
From the very beginning
telling you what the ending will be,
All along letting you in
on what is going to happen,
Assuring you, ‘I’m in this for the long haul,
I’ll do exactly what I set out to do,  Isaiah 46: 8-10  The Message

Sometimes we need to read a passage like this to make God big in our hearts again.  I think our natural tendency is to make Him small–in our likeness or the likeness of something in the world–and we need to focus on how huge and mighty and incomparable He is.  In this age where we get frustrated waiting for our computer to boot up, we need to remember that GOD IS IN THIS FOR THE LONG HAUL in each and every one of our lives.  God WILL perfect us, God DOES carry us, and God DOES have a plan for our lives.
