Have you not known? Have you not heard? The everlasting God, the Lord, The creator of the ends of the earth, Neither faints nor is weary. His understanding is unsearchable.
He gives power to the weak, And to those who have no might He increases strength. Even the youths shall faint and be weary, And the young men shall utterly fall, But those who wait on the Lord shall renew their strength; They shall mount up with wings like eagles, They shall run and not be weary, They shall walk and not faint. Isaiah 40:28-31 NKJV
Have you not known? Have you not heard? There is a God in Heaven. He is the everlasting, the One True and Living God. Almighty God opposes the proud. He gives grace to the humble. Jesus is a rewarder of people who diligently seek Him.
Why does God oppose the proud? Why does He give grace to the humble? Why does He reward people who diligently seek Him?
Pride is the original sin. Satan’s pride led to a rebellion against God. Pride is at the root of every sin committed by mankind. Humility is the opposite of pride. Every genuine act of service is done in humility. Jesus wants us to be convinced of the value in humility.
God rewards people who diligently seek Him because He created us to live in intimate relationship with Him. People who seek Jesus with their whole heart will find Him!
God’s understanding is unsearchable. It is difficult to know why God does things. We know He loves us. We know the Lord is for us and not against us. He knows what is best for us. He wants the best for us. God’s good and perfect will is always the best path for us to follow.
Jesus desires intimate relationship with us. His love completes us. Why does Jesus love us? Why does Jesus desire intimate relationship with us?
We do not have anything to offer the Lord. Jesus does not need anything from us. Like a loving Father He is moved with compassion for us. His love for us is limitless. His love for us is unconditional. His love for us is eternal.
The Lord of Heaven and Earth created us in His image and likeness. He created us with the capacity to love Him. When we express our love for God and each other the stamp of the Lord’s image and likeness is seen on us!
God’s power and might is unequaled in all of creation. His wisdom and knowledge are beyond our understanding. Jesus gives strength to the weak. Jesus opposes the proud. Jesus gives grace to the humble!
People who wait on the Lord will have their strength renewed by Him so that God’s character can be revealed in them and through them!
If you are worn and weary cry out to the Lord. Almighty God will renew your strength so you can make Jesus famous in your corner of the world!
