“Who has measured the waters in the hollow of his hand;”
Isaiah 40:12a (NICV)
My family and I love to vacation at the beach. As my husband and I sit digging our toes into the warm white sand, our children play in the emerald green salt water. The massive size of the ocean always reminds me that God is bigger and more wonderful than my mind can comprehend. I’m always compelled to quote out loud Isaiah 40:12 while sitting on the beach:
“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?”
What a superb reminder of God’s mighty power in the creation of the universe and galaxies. Even more amazing, He measured the span of them between His thumb and first finger. Hold those fingers up and look at their span for a moment. Now imagine God looking at the space between His thumb and first finger while saying, “I think I’ll make the universe about that big.” If that doesn’t give you a picture of just how big our wondrous God is, think about this: He poured the oceans from the palm of His hand! Oh, friend, when I gaze upon a huge body of water that could swallow me up in an instant, and I realize that God, at some moment in time, held the entire ocean in the palm of His hand, it simply blows me away!
As I consider this truth, I find myself awestruck by the greatness and glory of our God. Continue reading
What do you do when such a thing happens? Normally there are two choices. I can throw a pity party which I’ve done on plenty of occasions or I can choose joy! The only thing wrong with the pity party is that the only one who comes is me! My other option is to choose joy. May I say that in the midst of a pity party, joy is the last choice I want to make! However, it is a choice!
When I choose joy God changes my whole attitude! You know what I’ve found out? A joy party is much more fun than a pity party!
One verse that encourages me to choose joy is 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18 “Be joyful always; pray continually; give thanks in all circumstances, for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.
Choose joy today. It works!
