Men as Men; God as God

Men as Men; God as God

I, even I, am he that comforteth you: who art thou, that thou shouldest be afraid of a man that shall die, and of the son of man which shall be made as grass; and forgettest the Lord thy maker, that hath stretched forth the heavens, and laid the foundations of the earth; and hast feared continually every day because of the fury of the oppressor, as if he were ready to destroy? and where is the fury of the oppressor? 
(Isaiah 51:12-13)

Let the text itself be taken as the portion for today. 
There is no need to enlarge upon it. Trembling one, read it, believe it, feed on it, and plead it before the Lord. 

He whom you fear is only a man after all; while He who promises to comfort you is God, your Maker, and the creator of heaven and earth. 
Infinite comfort more than covers a very limited danger.

"Where is the fury of the oppressor?" It is in the Lord's hand. It is only the fury of a dying creature; fury which will end as soon as the breath is gone from the nostril. 

Why, then, should we stand in awe of one who is as frail as ourselves? Let us not dishonor our God by making a god of puny man. We can make an idol of a man by rendering to him excessive fear as well as by paying him inordinate love. 

Let us treat men as men, and God as God; and then we shall go calmly on in the path of duty, fearing the Lord and fearing nobody else.

not in its fashion and manner, but in the truth which it contains.”....
