Behold, the nations are as a drop in a bucket.
We need to understand that God doesn’t get up and read the front page of the newspaper to determine whether or not He’s still on His throne. We may read the headlines and wonder what’s going to happen. We may listen to Larry King and Anderson Cooper and wonder if the world can stand. Isaiah says, in effect, “Stand? The affairs of the world don’t even tilt the balance.” He is the God of majesty who reveals it in the magnitude of measurements, the massiveness of His intelligence, and the might of His sovereignty over the nations.
