Have you never heard? Have you never understood? The Lord is the everlasting God, the Creator of all the earth. He never grows weak or weary. No one can measure the depths of his understanding.Isaiah 40:28 (NLT)
This passage of Scripture is so packed with quality theology that it’s hard for me to narrow down our devotional topic this morning. So, perhaps I’ll just break it down exegetically (That is a big, fancy word which means “To go word by word, piece by piece.”)
“The Lord is the everlasting God.” Ponder that one for a moment. Within this one phrase, the prophet Isaiah captures so much. God is “the Lord,” which means that He is over us. He is the ruler of His kingdom, this kingdom. And it is everlasting, so it will never fall. He’s the One calling the shots. Why? Because He is “the Creator of all the earth.” He created His kingdom – not just the mountains, oceans, plants, birds, and animals, but every one of us. In addition, He created the entire universe so that life could exist on Earth. The sun, moon, and stars all serve a singular purpose: to allow you and me to exist. So, our Lord, our King, is a loving King.
Additionally, “He never grows weak or weary.” Let that one sink in. Perhaps you’ve had a long day at work or school, the kids are driving you nuts, or you ran a marathon. You will definitely sleep well that night. Why? Because you are exhausted! Sometimes life just takes it out of you. But, God isn’t like us. He doesn’t ever get exhausted, worn out. He perseveres no matter what is going on day or night. He is always watching over us, guiding us, loving us. Even as He works to get us out of our despair, He never gets tired of it. He never gets tired of us. He is always on point, 100 percent of the time.
And, God is flawless. His wisdom, His knowledge is unlike any other in the universe. As Isaiah puts it, “No one can measure the depths of his understanding.” We can trust in His decisions because they are correct all the time. He’s never wrong. We don’t need to second guess God. He is perfect in His knowledge of the universe, humanity, and each one of us.
So, there you have it. We have a King, our King, who loves us dearly and can create something out of nothing. He never grows tired of us, or His work. His wisdom, which He imparts to us, is perfect. How great is our God?!
