Our Good Guide and Guardian

God’s perspective and power are detailed by the prophet Isaiah.

“Have you not known? Have you not heard? Has it not been told you from the beginning? Have you not understood from the foundations of the earth? It is He who sits above the circle of the earth, And its inhabitants are like grasshoppers, Who stretches out the heavens like a curtain, And spreads them out like a tent to dwell in. He brings the princes to nothing; He makes the judges of the earth useless. Scarcely shall they be planted, Scarcely shall they be sown, Scarcely shall their stock take root in the earth, When He will also blow on them, And they will wither, And the whirlwind will take them away like stubble.” (Isaiah 40: 21 – 24) Opponents of God are like dust on His balancing scales and are blown away like dust; their gods are silent.

If that is true of nations, it is also the perspective we should have of any problem confronting us. To us it may seem insurmountable, but to God it is no challenging obstacle.

Therefore, I commend to you as your guide and guardian our loving Lord Who is able to deliver you. Our text speaks of God as “The everlasting God.” (Vs.  28) Therefore, He is the outlasting God.  

He is spoken of as “The Creator of the ends of the earth.” His reputation as Creator is under assault. Recently, the Smithsonian opened a $20,000,000 exhibit using the latest in laser, holographic art, and other sophisticated technologies to depict the evolution of man. Textbooks present the myth of evolution. Even with this massive attempt to eradicate His reputation as Creator nearly 50% of the American population expresses belief in the Genesis account of God as Creator.

One law of science confirms His omnipotence; that is, that He is all powerful. It is this: The cause is always equal to or greater than the effect.

The cause is God. The effect is the universe. The greatness of our universe is evident. The Cause, our God, though invisible, is seen in His greatness revealed in His handiwork.

“Since the creation of the world His invisible attributes are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even 

His eternal power and Godhead….” (Romans 1: 20)

“The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament shows His handiwork.” (Psalm 19:1)

He is all knowing and therefore competent to be our guide.

He is all powerful, and therefore capable of being our guardian.

Trust Him as your good guide and guardian.
