God’s fingerwork

I was reading Isaiah 17, where it says:

7 In that day man will look to his Maker, and his eyes will look on the Holy One of Israel.
8 He will not look to the altars, the work of his hands, and he will not look on what his own fingers have made, either the Asherim or the altars of incense. (ESV)

It got me to thinking about Psalm 8:3 where we read that the work of God’s fingers are the heavens. Here is a look that puts the work of our fingers into perspective. Nothing compares to God’s fingerwork, and nothing compares to God himself. However, rather than making us feel small, it should make us feel how big God is. Our God is a great and majestic God.
