Indeed, who but God?

Proverbs 30 - 31

Opening God's word this morning I found Proverbs 30 refreshing and renewing to my spirit.  God reminded me once again exactly who He is and to keep my eyes on Him.

The world is continually taking bits and pieces of the bible to fit whatever need might need to be met at the moment and I tire of this practice.  Why not take all of the bible and know it is God's divine words? People want to believe in eternal life, so most people claim this part.  How do you claim just the parts you want to claim and not all of it?  I don't think we get to pick and choose the parts we like and don't like.   After all, God is God and He can do anything...why is any of it so hard to imagine? We aren't talking about you and me...we are talking GOD!  God created the world, He uses the earth as His footstool, so why try to break down God's Word to explain our weaknesses or habits?  God is God and this chapter is a beautiful reminder of all that God truly is...

Who but God goes up to heaven and comes back down?
Who holds the wind in his fists?
Who wraps up the oceans in his cloak?
Who has created the whole wide world?
What is his name-and his son's name?
Tell me if you know!

Every word of God proves true.
He is a shield to all who come to him for protection.
Do not add to his words, 
or he may rebuke you and expose you as a liar.

and again in verse 18-19
There are three things that amaze me-
no four things that I don't understand:
how an eagle glides through the sky,
how a snake slithers on a rock,
how a ship navigates the ocean,
how a man loves a woman.

Again, in verses 24-31
There are four things on earth that are small but unusually wise:
Ants-they aren't strong,
but they store up food all summer.
Hyraxes-they aren't powerful,
but they make their homes among the rocks.
Locusts-they have no king, 
but they march in formation.
Lizards-they are easy to catch,
but they are found even in king's palaces.
There are three things that walk with stately stride-
no, four that strut about:
the lion, king of animals, who won't turn aside for anything,
the strutting rooster,
the male goat,
a king as he leads his army.

Today, remember who God is ...

Sweet blessings,
