Sometimes the Lord calls my attention to just one word and this morning was the case with the word Grasshopper and I look in Isaiah 40:22 but when I read the Scriptures from verse 9 to the end, Wow I found the Greatness of God.. Wow impress me a lot.. I attached it for your blessing .

Isaiah 40

English Standard Version (ESV)

The Greatness of God

 9 Get you up to a high mountain,
   O Zion, herald of good news;
lift up your voice with strength,
   O Jerusalem, herald of good news;
   lift it up, fear not;
say to the cities of Judah,
   "Behold your God!"
10 Behold, the Lord GOD comes with might,
   and his arm rules for him;
 behold, his reward is with him,
   and his recompense before him.
11 He will tend his flock like a shepherd;
    he will gather the lambs in his arms;
 he will carry them in his bosom,
   and gently lead those that are with young.
 12 Who has measured the waters in the hollow of his hand
   and marked off the heavens with a span,
enclosed the dust of the earth in a measure
   and weighed the mountains in scales
   and the hills in a balance?
13 Who has measured the Spirit of the LORD,
   or what man shows him his counsel?
14Whom did he consult,
   and who made him understand?
 Who taught him the path of justice,
   and taught him knowledge,
   and showed him the way of understanding?
15Behold, the nations are like a drop from a bucket,
   and are accounted as the dust on the scales;
   behold, he takes up the coastlands like fine dust.
16Lebanon would not suffice for fuel,
   nor are its beasts enough for a burnt offering.
17 All the nations are as nothing before him,
   they are accounted by him as less than nothing and emptiness.

 18 To whom then will you liken God,
   or what likeness compare with him?
19 An idol! A craftsman casts it,
   and a goldsmith overlays it with gold
   and casts for it silver chains.
20 He who is too impoverished for an offering
   chooses wood that will not rot;
he seeks out a skillful craftsman
   to set up an idol that will not move.

 21 Do you not know? Do you not hear?
   Has it not been told you from the beginning?
   Have you not understood from the foundations of the earth?
22It 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 like a tent to dwell in;
23 who brings princes to nothing,
   and makes the rulers of the earth as emptiness.

 24Scarcely are they planted, scarcely sown,
   scarcely has their stem taken root in the earth,
when he blows on them, and they wither,
    and the tempest carries them off like stubble.

 25 To whom then will you compare me,
   that I should be like him? says the Holy One.
26Lift up your eyes on high and see:
   who created these?
 He who brings out their host by number,
   calling them all by name,
by the greatness of his might,
   and because he is strong in power
   not one is missing.

 27Why do you say, O Jacob,
   and speak, O Israel,
 "My way is hidden from the LORD,
    and my right is disregarded by my God"?
28Have you not known? Have you not heard?The LORD is the everlasting God,
   the Creator of the ends of the earth.
He does not faint or grow weary;
   his understanding is unsearchable.
29He gives power to the faint,
   and to him who has no might he increases strength.
30Even youths shall faint and be weary,
   and young men shall fall exhausted;
31but they who wait for the LORD shall renew their strength;
   they shall mount up with wings like eagles;
they shall run and not be weary;
   they shall walk and not faint.
HOw precious is our Lord on all of HIS promises,, 
Aleluya !!!
