The writer of Proverbs knows perfectly well the limitations of human beings. We cannot have divine knowledge. We cannot gather the wind in our hands. We cannot wrap up the waters of the oceans in a garment. We did not establish the ends of the earth. The writer also knows who is able to do all this and more. It is that all-powerful one who “came as one among us” in Jesus Christ so that we might fully know God’s power and experience God’s compassion. To God be the glory!
O God, your power and compassion inspire our faith in you. We praise your name. Amen.
