44. Never-ending God

Isaiah 40:28 is one of my favorite verses. Especially during seasons when life is exhausting, I love how it reminds me that God never gets tired. It’s comforting to know there is someone in my corner, who I can trust, that never needs to sleep or take a break.

“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.”

So have you heard? Do you believe? Even more than either of these is knowing, though. Knowing requires having some personal experience that you can point to when a question is raised. This verse points to God’s hugeness and His authority and asks you, “Do you know in the depths of your heart?”

1. God is an everlasting God, unlike other things we rely on.

2. God is the creator of the ends of the earth.

Then the last sentence explains what these characteristics of God tell us about Him:

1. Even though He exists forever and ever, even past space and time, He does not grow weary. Amazing. He never has to take a break from hearing our prayers, never has downtime from making your next steps sure.

2. Because He created everything, He holds an understanding of it all. He knows all about how our bodies and minds work. He knows all the laws of physics, what black matter is, and if teleportation is possible. He knows each individual person and their personality inside and out. He understands exactly how we feel and what we need, even what we want.

These parts of God’s character enable Him to be our best friend and comforter. And as the next verses in the chapter go on to say, if we wait for Him, He will give us strength as well. Getting to know God will include seasons when you intimately grow to know these two parts of His character.
