After looking through the new blog backgrounds that Blogger is offering, I finally chose this one (as to date). The dried Maple leaves and the windy looking background reminds me of the verses in Isaiah 40:6-8 where it reads:

A voice says, "Cry out."
And I said, "What shall I cry?"
"All men are like grass,
and all their glory is like the flowers of the field.

The grass withers and the flowers fall,
because the breath of the LORD blows on them.

Surely the people are grass.

The grass withers and the flowers fall,
but the word of our God stands forever."

Based on John Wesley's Bible commentary towards these verses, he mentioned that :

The prophet having foretold glorious things, confirms the certainty of them, by representing the vast difference between the nature, and word, and work of men and of God. All that men are or have, yea, their highest accomplishments, are but like the grass of the field, weak and vanishing, soon nipt and brought to nothing; but God's word is like himself, immutable and irresistible: and therefore as the mouth of the Lord, and not of man, hath spoken these things, so doubt not but they shall be fulfilled.

Other commentaries such as the Robert Jamieson, A. R. Fausset and David Brown Bible Commentary gives similar annotation.

This post is a prelude to my next post that's coming soon. It's been two months already since my last post and one could just see how time passes.

Max signing off for now! : )
