Who has understood the mind of the Lord, or instructed him as his counselor? - Isaiah 40:13, NIV
“Who has understood the mind of the Lord, or instructed him as his counselor?” The answer that reverberates through the millenniums is . . . no one . . . no one. God stands in the august solitude of Himself. When He acts, it is because He Himself has taken the initiative and made the decision to do so.
God took the initiative
to create the universe: “And God said . . . ,”
to create man: “Let us make man in our image . . . ,”
to create woman: “I will make a helper. . . .”
And God took the initiative to send His Son to be our Savior.
How unbelievably awesome is the One Who created everything!
Our heads should bow,
our wills should yield,
our hearts should love
the One Who took the initiative and revealed His glory through His eternity, deity, and activity.
