On our humanistic scale each of these may be considered valid measures of a nation’s strength. However, God doesn’t see things in the same way. According to Isaiah 40:17, a nation equals nothing.
Compared to the Lord all nations are worth nothing; to him they are less than nothing. (NCV)
A whole body of people end up in the red on God’s scale. Which is good news to me. It lets me know that no matter what I’m looking up at that seems colossal in my eyes, God can handle the weight of it.
What is that has you weighted down with worry, doubt, confusion, frustration? Have you taken the matter to God?
