“Do you not know? Have you not heard? The LORD is the everlasting God, the Creator of the ends of the earth. He will not grow tired or weary, and his understanding no one can fathom. He gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak.”
Isaiah 40:28-29 (NIV)
At first glance you can read today’s passage and think that the author is asking a rhetorical question. Who hasn’t heard that the Lord God of the Universe is the everlasting God, creator of the ends of the earth? If you were going to believe in a God, wouldn’t you want one all-powerful? Yes, no doubt He would be the everlasting creator, who never tires and has understanding that is beyond our comprehension. But to be complete in your comprehension of God you would need to know that our God is also compassionate to those in need, giving strength to the weary and helping those that are weak. It is this almighty compassionate God that Isaiah is asking about. He says, “Do you not know? Have you not heard?” Otherwise, have you let the reality of this God change your life? It is by hoping in the LORD that loves you that you will renew your strength. Trusting in our God who never tires of being merciful to you will cause you to soar on wings like eagles. In fact, Isaiah writes that you will run and not grow weary; you will walk and not be faint. Does this sound like the God you believe in? Today put your faith and trust in our everlasting God, the creator of the earth, the God who never tires of being compassionate toward you.
Dear God, how I praise You for Your majesty. You are everlasting, the creator of the earth. Thank You for caring for me. Praise You for the way You strengthen me. Today be merciful to me. In your compassionate power, help me run and not grow weary, help me walk and not faint.
