HAVE YOU NOT KNOWN? HAVE YOU NOT HEARD?

The Creator of the whole earth is the rightful owner and ruler of all, and must be concluded TO HAVE AN ABSOLUTE POWER OVER ALL AND AN ALL-SUFFICIENCY TO HELP HIS PEOPLE IN THEIR GREATEST STRAITS. Matthew Henry.

“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. He gives power to the faint, and to him who has no might he increases strength. Even youths shall faint and be weary, and young men shall fall exhausted; but they who wait for 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 ‭ESV‬‬

Everlasting God, you are so much more than “capable.”  I say this because sometimes , I think and act to the contrary.  How?  When I worry and stress out.  For when I do I’m saying, “You are less than capable.”  These verses remind me of how untrue that is.  You are everlasting.  You are all-powerful.  You are all-wise.  This never changes because your Word stands forever . Therefore, as a forgiven redeemed child of God bought by the blood of Jesus Christ, when tempted to worry and stress, I will recall these truths: you are loving, powerful, wise, unchanging… And trusting in them I will face the day in peace and joy.  In Jesus’ name. Amen.

    Thanks, Crissy. Yes, our flesh desires to be in control of all of our circumstances. So much easier to rest in the Lord’s sovereignty.
