Isaiah 40:13-14 and Jay Cooke State Park, Minnesota.
“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?” Isaiah 40:13-14
Our Omniscient God
God’s knowledge greatly surpasses ours. In fact the Scriptures teach that God knows everything—that He is omniscient. Isaiah 53 verse 9 tells us we are unable to understand God’s ways.
God possesses infinite knowledge and needs to consult no one before He acts. The weight of the world and universe falls on Him and He easily controls it all.
As a revelation of God, nature reveals God’s infinite knowledge through it’s complexity and it’s majesty. Only an incredible mind can create so much wonder and beauty? Praise Him and rest in Him.

Attributes of God Series: Isaiah 57:15 and Clouds Surround a Mountain, Collegiate Peaks Wilderness Area, Colorado.
“For thus says the high and exalted One. Who dwells in eternity, whose name is Holy, I dwell on a high and holy place, And also with the contrite and lowly of spirit In order to revive the spirit of the lowly And to revive the heart of the contrite.” Isaiah 57:15
Our Transcendent God Who also Dwells with the Lowly
God dwells in eternity. He lives outside of time and creation, in a place outside our comprehension. He transcends the Universe and all of creation. Transcendence is one of God’s attributes.
God transcends time, creation and our comprehension, but do not worry. As this Bible verse tells us, Our transcendent God also chooses to enter time and space to dwell “with the contrite and lowly”. Think of the wonder in that thought! The God without limits, that nothing can contain, has chosen to dwell with you and me.
God wants to walk with you and spend time with you. Be blessed knowing that God who can live everywhere and do anything chooses to spend time with you.
