O Jacob, how can you say the Lord does not see your troubles?

O Israel, how can you say God ignores your rights?
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.
He gives power to the weak and strength to the powerless.
Even youths will become weak and tired, and young men will fall in exhaustion.

But those who trust in the Lord will find new strength.

They will soar high on wings like eagles.
They will run and not grow weary.

They will walk and not faint.

(Isaiah 40:27-31 NLT)


These ancient words have offered timeless encouragement for generations. The verses juxtapose the Creator with the humans He created offering a clear reminder of just who can go the distance with us and for us. Employers and colleagues can tire of our personal issues and emergency disruptions. Even the closest friends and dearest family can be exhausted by our reoccurring needs and pressing desires. Indeed, we can grow weary of ourselves! So, it is good to know that we have a Heavenly Father who can literally never be fatigued by our crises or yearnings. The Lord is the everlasting God! He is slow to anger, full of compassion and grace (see Exodus 34:5-7). He alone is infinite and inexhaustible. And this unfathomable God has graciously committed Himself to us!


His character, capacity, and covenant have given us so many, many reasons to be thankful:


Revelation (see Romans 10:17)

Redemption (see Galatians 3:13-14)

Transformation (see 2 Corinthians 5:17)

Completion (see Colossians 2:9-10)

Education (see Titus 2:11-14)

Function (see Romans 12:4-8)

Invigoration (see 2 Thessalonians 3:3)

Stimulation (see Philippians 2:13)

Provision (see Matthew 6:25-33)

Direction (see Romans 8:14)

Encouragement (see 2 Thessalonians 2:15-17)

Correction (see 2 Timothy 3:16-17)

Illumination (see 1 Corinthians 1:6-12)

Affirmation (see Romans 8:31-39)

And much more …


The Lord never tires, and He never tires of us. Let’s never tire of thanking Him for His constant goodness to us - body, soul, and spirit; yesterday, today, and forever. He is most worthy.
