God knows not just the measure of the things easy to measure, but the measure of things we can’t possibly measure, such as the dust of the earth and the measure of all the waters in the oceans. Our inability to measure aspects of creation reminds us again of how much greater God is than we are!
Who hath measured the waters in the hollow of his hand, and meted out heaven with the span, and comprehended the dust of the earth in a measure, and weighed the mountains in scales, and the hills in a balance? Isaiah 40:12
