When you serve an incomparable God, you should learn to expect the unexpected. After all, He’s the Creator of the universe and so, there aren’t a whole lot of things that are beyond His pay grade. But sometimes we need a reminder that our God is truly great. In the midst of the difficulties of life, it can be easy to question His power or to doubt His ability or willingness to save. But, as we will see in Isaiah 41:1-20, God’s greatness becomes most visible and believable when we come to grips with our own smallness. His power is made perfect in our weakness. His glory shines best in the gloom of our own darkness. And while the people of Judah were struggling with their lot in life, God wanted them to know that He was there for them. But He also wanted them to know that He was behind all that was happening to them. When it came to the question of who was behind the looming threat of Babylonian invasion, God replied: “I, the Lord, I am He.” The people of Judah may not have liked what was going on, but if they would only trust God, they would learn that His ways were always best.
