He’s Got the Whole World in His Hands
“Who has measured the waters in the hollow of his hand…”
Isaiah 40:12a (NIV)
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?” (NIV)
Dear Lord, You are Lord of all and over all, whether Your people acknowledge it or not. All of Your creation declares Your greatness and beauty. Stir my heart to worship You so that the rocks don’t have to cry out. You are worthy of all my praise. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.

Take time to recall how great and magnificent God is. Do it again tomorrow and the next day, too. See if you don’t find yourself awestruck by the One so magnificent we can scarcely wrap our minds around the thought of Him.
When did you last sit and ponder God’s creation?
How does His creation speak of His greatness?
How can you use God’s creation as a witnessing tool to unbelieving friends and family?
Jeremiah 32:17, “Ah, Sovereign Lord, you have made the heavens and the earth by your great power and outstretched arm. Nothing is too hard for you.” (NIV)

Luke 19:38-39, “’Blessed is the King who comes in the name of the Lord! Peace in heaven and glory in the highest!’ And some of the Pharisees in the crowd said to him, ‘Teacher, rebuke your disciples.’ He answered, ‘I tell you, if these were silent, the very stones would cry out.’" (ESV)
