Isaiah 40:22 – He who sits above the circle of the earth

Passage: Isaiah 40:22

It is He who sits above the circle of the earth,
And its inhabitants are like grasshoppers,
Who stretches out the heavens like a curtain
And spreads them out like a tent to dwell in.

I saw this interactive Flash demo of the Scale of the Universe on Challies’ A La Carte post for 2/13¬†and thought of this verse that talks about the immensity of God.

Psalm 139:14 – Fearfully and Wonderfully Made Part 1

Passage: Psalm 139:14

“Binocular Vision” a.k.a. Canon PhotoStitch (Image stitching program) on steroids:

Take your hand, flatten your palm, and place it perpendicular to your nose, between your two eyes. Close one eye and leave the other open. Then, open that eye and close the other. Finally, open both eyes.

Psalm 119:73 – Help Me, O My Creator

Passage: Psalm 119:73

This verse is found in the middle of the longest chapter in the Bible, Psalm 119. As the editors of the particular Bible in front of me noted in the section heading, Psalm 119 is a collection of “Meditations and Prayers Relating to the Law of God.”

The reader can find much encouragement in peering into the devotional life of this psalmist, and learn much as a worshiper of how he may rightly and reverently worship his God.

The psalmist utters a prayer that exalts God and puts himself in his rightful place–a creature in utter dependence upon his Creator.
