Aseity in Isaiah 40

Some of the facts about God that Isaiah 40 presents:

  • God is without any limits or boundaries (v. 12-13).
  • God’s knowledge and wisdom are not dependent in any way upon counselors or outside sources of information (v. 14).
  • God is infinite, and anything in comparison is simply nothing (v. 15-17).
  • God is incomparable and incomprehensible. There is no created thing to which he can ultimately be likened. He is in his own category of being (v. 18-19).
  • God could simply blow the entire created realm out of existence (v. 22-24).
  • God is everlasting, eternal, and unchanged by time (v. 28).
  • God is never lacking in strength, energy, or might (v. 28-29).

Behold, wonder, and worship!
