Isaiah 40:13

Who hath directed the Spirit of the Lord, or being his counsellor hath taught him?  With whom took he counsel, and who instructed him, and taught him in the path of judgment, and taught him knowledge, and shewed to him the way of understanding.

Isaiah 40:13-14

How often do we think that we know better than God?  Of course we would never actually come out and say those words and we probably would never even think those words.  But how often do our lives betray us and show that, deep down, we think we know better than God?  These are good verses to help us remember just how great God is and just how small we are in the areas of wisdom and intellect.

Just look at the questions asked in these verses- “Who… being his counsellor hath taught him”, and “with whom took he counsel”, and “who instructed him”, and “who… taught him in the path of judgment”, and “who… shewed to him the way of understanding?”.
