Lift up your Eyes

Isaiah 40:25-26. “To whom then will ye liken Me, or shall I be equal? saith the Holy One.  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.”

God asks this same question in v. 18.  “Who is greater than I?  To whom can I be compared?”

Then He call upon us to simply look up into the heavens for proof of His existence. Who else besides God could have created such an amazing display of His glory and power?  The more we learn about the universe, the more we have to be impressed with the clockwork organization  He has created, the order that maintains the stars in their places.  And He calls them all by name. No one else can do that.  No one else even knows how many stars are out there, or exactly how vast our universe is.

So why does mankind so often seem to want to deny the existence of God and attribute His amazing creation to chance?  I think the answer is actually quite simple.  Man, in his pride,  wants to deny any greater power than his own because then he is answerable to no one. There is no greater authority than man, no one who can call us to account for our behavior.

I think, in a creation in which the stars are all named by the Creator, we are just silly to think that we are supreme.
