As I was reading in Isaiah today I came across a scripture that made me think of Weebles. Bet you didn't know there was a scripture like that, did you?
The craftsman encourages the goldsmith, and he who smooths with the hammer spurs on him who strikes the anvil. He says of the welding, "It is good." He nails down the idol so it will not topple.
In this passage, God is challenging the "lands beyond the sea." "Who has done such mighty deeds? It is I, the LORD, the First and the Last." (Isaiah 41:4) The lands beyond the sea watch in fear, and make idols to encourage one another. Idols that have to be nailed down so they don't fall over. What? They found strength and courage in something they made, something that has the potential to fall?
Why do we find it easier to trust in things our hands have made than in the One who made our hands?
Our God never fails. The Bible says that the grass will wither and the flowers will fade, but the word of our God stands forever! (Isaiah 40:8) God has held the oceans in His hands. He knows the weight of the earth. Why would we trust anything or anyone else?
Have you never heard? Have you never understood? The LORD is the everlasting God, the Creator of all the earth. He never grows weak or weary. No one can measure the depths of his understanding. Isaiah 40:28
We can trust in our finances, or our jobs, but these will fail. We can trust in our friends or spouse, but they are human and will probably fall. Or we can trust in God, who never grows weak or weary. No need to nail Him down. Our God never falls.
