Who Has Directed the Spirit of the LORD?

February 12, 2020


Who Has Directed the Spirit of the LORD?

Isaiah 40:13-14
Who has directed  the Spirit  of the LORD,
Or as His counselor  has informed Him?
With whom  did He consult  and who gave Him  understanding?
And who taught Him  in the path of justice  and taught Him knowledge,
And informed Him  of the way  of understanding?

People often question  God’s wisdom.      We think we know  what we want,  how we want it,  and when  we want it.      But,  no one has the wisdom  of God Almighty.      Nobody has the authority  or knowledge  to tell  the Spirit of the LORD”  what to do.      Not a one of us  is able  to counsel  the LORD  about even our very own circumstances.      God knows more about  what is going on around us  and in us — along with our future — than we can ever comprehend.      Our every thought  and inclination  are open  to the LORD,  so we can never  con Him  in anything.

Never ever  has God needed  to consult anyone  for a better understanding  of a situation.      No one has ever taught Him  anything.      We pray  to the Lord  and tell Him  about our problems,  but He knew all about them  long before.      We aren’t telling Him  anything new.      Nevertheless,  in His compassion,  our Lord wants us  to tell Him all,  because it is a means  of getting it  off our minds.      We need to share  our thoughts  with God.

When we tell Him all,  let us trust  His infinite wisdom,  knowledge,  and love.      All things are possible  with the LORD — and nothing is impossible.      We can be assured  that He will work  all things  for the good  of those  who love His name — even in the midst  of great tribulations.

As we humbly acknowledge  our Savior’s love,  we say,  “Hallelujah!      Lord,  all things  are in Your merciful hands,  help our lives  to glorify  Your saving love.”
