I found this video from Mars Hill Church in Seattle a while back. Check it out, then swing down below for a new-to-me insight that hit me this morning
Now check out Isaiah 44:21. Immediately after he tells the story of the foolish man who builds a god out of his left-over firewood, he contrasts it with His own forming of Israel, his chosen people.
We form idols and bow down to them. God forms us, and graciously condescends to us, “not forgetting” us, even though we are that foolish craftsman praying to a stack of firewood.
