Isaiah 10:15–Is the axe to boast itself over the one who chops with it? Is the saw to exalt itself over the one who wields it? That would be like a club wielding those who lift it. Or like a rod lifting him who is not wood.
Do we boast in our own accomplishments? Or do we recognize the power of the One who is over all things? Isaiah is pointing out how ridiculous it would be for these instruments to be in charge instead of the person who uses them. We are the instrument that God uses to bring about His purpose and glory. We are only to boast in the power of the Lord, for without Him, we would not be able to do anything.
Lord, You are the mighty One who directs all things. You are worthy of praise and honor. I give thanks to You and glory to You for all that You do. You are indeed amazing and wonderful.
