Familiar with the song having that lyrics? Well, I often hear that ever since I was in highschool as the worship leader sing that song over hundred times in a year. I’ve read that same line while having my devotion last night thus made me curious by what does it really mean. What does it mean “As the water cover the sea”?

They will neither harm nor destroy on all my holy mountain, for the earth will be full of the knowledge of the Lord as the water cover the sea. – Isaiah 11:9

God loved us so much that even the very smallest thing we have will never be out of his sight and knowledge. Literally, how can you protect someone you love if you don’t even have an idea about where you’ll going to protect him/her from. Aside from the fact that God is all powerful above all, being His creation can be one of the best reason that we can’t escape from the knowledge of Him. Only the inventor can truly have the total familiarity of his own invention. We are God’s invention, created in His own image and likeness, He knows our weaknesses, our struggles. As a matter of fact, God knows us even more than we know ourselves. And He’s willing to guide us, to protect us as we submit under His Authority and Power.

Even before a word is on my tongue, behold, O LORD, you know it altogether. – Psalm 139: 4

Even without explaining, God’s understanding is no limit. As the water cover the sea, so YOUR LOVE covers me…..
