You, O Triune God, are the Great One, living far above the tiny collection of atoms we call home. As Isaiah wrote: “Surely the nations are like a drop in a bucket, they are regarded as dust on the scales” (Isa. 40:15). The billions of people on earth, to us a mighty throng, are to you a miniscule, insignificant speck: one drop, hardly noticeable. You are so much greater than all the people who have ever lived and you are involved in much bigger things, like the birth and death of stars, yet you love and care for each insignificant, tiny person.
“[He] weighs the islands as though they were fine dust.” All the islands of the world are miniscule before you, Lord, easily blown away by a breath. You, in contrast, are massive, monumental, majestic, immovable and mighty. You are eternal and everlasting, the opposite of the temporary, tiny and tentative islands of the earth.
You are amazing, marvelous, majestic and mighty. To you belongs all glory and exaltation.
