Who Is God?

How would you answer these questions of Agur?
Who has ascended into heaven, or descended?
Who has gathered the wind in His fists?
Who has bound the waters in a garment?
Who has established all the ends of the earth?
What is His name, and what is His Son’s name,
If you know?
(Proverbs 30:4)
Why did Agur ask those questions? What was he wanting us to learn or to think about? One thing I get from his questions is that my name cannot be offered as an answer to even one question. Therefore, I need to know that I am not God and should not act as though I am, but I should submit myself to Him who does all those things.
