Throughout recorded history, mankind has searched for someone or something to worship…some force greater than themselves. Defying logic, societies often chose to worship an image or object created with their own hands – something they could understand and manage. In this passage, God makes it clear that there is nothing – no living being or created image – that comes close to comparing with Him. He stands alone as the one who created everything from nothing. As such, He cannot be commanded or controlled.
Questions for further thought:
1. How has your understanding of who God is changed as you have walked with Him?
2. What is the hardest aspect of God’s character for you to come to terms with? How does that impact your relationship with Him?
