“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.
O Jacob, how can you say the Lord does not see your troubles?
O Israel, how can you say God ignores your rights?
Have you never heard? Have you never understood?
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.
He gives power to the weak and strength to the powerless.
Even youths will become weak and tired, and young men will fall in exhaustion.
But those who trust in the Lord will find new strength.
They will soar high on wings like eagles. They will run and not grow weary.
They will walk and not faint.
- Isaiah 40:25-31 (NLT)
On the next clear night when the stars are out, take some time to just look up.
Begin trying to count them and name them at the same time.
How does it make you feel knowing that God already has?
Father, You have created all things.
You simply spoke and formed everything from nothing. I am in wonder!
When I am weak, I will wait.
When I feel powerless to do or change anything, I will wait.
I will wait, for you are my all.
