Have you not known? Have you not heard? The Lord is the everlasting God, the Creator of the ends of the earth. He does not faint or grow weary; his understanding is unsearchable. Isaiah 40:28
God’s people already know all this. But faith is strengthened not by learning something new; faith is strengthened by coming back to what we have heard and known.
God is your Creator. God formed you in your mother’s womb. He gave you life with the purpose of redeeming you. He purchased you at the cost of his own Son. He infused a new life into you, recreating you in Jesus Christ. “The Lord is…the Creator of the ends of the earth” (40:28).
God does not grow weary. God sustains all that he has made. He never runs out of resources. He never tires of you. There is never a time when God looks at you and says, “Where do we go from here?” Why not? Because “he does not faint or grow weary” (40:28).
God works on an everlasting timescale. Time is at his disposal. None of us knows what God will do in the coming year, let alone the next 10 years, or what God will do in the lives of our children or grandchildren. The granddaughter of your rebel son may turn out to have a ministry beyond anything you can imagine. “The Lord is the everlasting God” (40:28).
No one can fathom God’s understanding. None of us will ever fathom the mind of God or gain a full picture of what he is doing. So, why try? “His understanding is unsearchable!” (40:28). Lean into what you already know about God.
What do you already know about God that you need to lean into when you’re weary?
