Lift up your eyes on high, and behold who hath created these things, that bringeth out their host by number: he calleth them all by names by the greatness of his might, for that he is strong in power; not one faileth.” Isaiah 40:26 (KJV)
The very unfolding of nature is a great testament to the wisdom of our Father. How can Mankind be so arrogant to think there is no God! How can the “learned” be so simple to think the universe leaped out of its very self! How can we the sons of God be so ignorant to think we don’t need His wisdom and rely on our wits to power our lives!
As we are amazed at the creation of God, we, however, should not loose sight of the fact that “Human Man” was the very best of God’s creation. You might be wondering why I say Man was showing the past tense? If Man is the best of God’s creation, then Our Father would be a failure, because Man has turned out to be a failure both to God, himself and his environment.
Far be it from us that Our Father is a failure! for when Man erred and fell by his ignorance, He had thought of a brand-new creation after the first Man (Adam). He conceived you and me out of His Son Christ Jesus—His priceless treasure in whom is hidden all the treasures of knowledge and wisdom (Colossians 2:3)
If our Great and Mighty Father could do such an awesome job with the plants, birds, and animals, won’t He do an even splendid job with us? Christ Jesus says “Behold the fowls of the air: for they sow not, neither do they reap, nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feedeth them. Are ye not much better than they?” Matthew 6:26 (KJV)
Why do we sons of God freight and think we can handle ourselves more than He does? That we can best design and define ourselves and our lives more than He does? For the most parts, it’s because we have not come to comprehend Him; we know Him as our Father but we don’t comprehend His mind – how He thinks.
Isaiah is calling on you and me to “lift up your (our) eyes on high, and behold who hath created these things…”. Our Father should be our sole focus. How do we focus on God we can’t see? We focus on Christ Jesus who is the image (icon) of the Godhead. How do we focus on Christ Jesus who is not here now? By focusing on His Word for He is the Word and yielding to the promptings of the Holy Spirit. Meeting the needs, encouraging and lifting one another.
The more we focus on Him, the more we comprehend Him and become like Him as we are transfigured into His complete character and wisdom. Our Father’s greatness and might is clear through creation, but He yearns to be great and mighty in and through us; His sons.
