Hope in the Everlasting God


God does not grow tired or weary. The everlasting God is as fresh and as strong as ever. He is as present and powerful and caring and just as ever. He is everlasting. Those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength.  Find the fountain of God’s abundance today!

28 The Lord is the everlasting God,
the Creator of the ends of the earth.
He will not grow tired or weary,
and his understanding no one can fathom.
29 He gives strength to the weary
and increases the power of the weak.
30 Even youths grow tired and weary,
and young men stumble and fall;
31 but those who hope in the Lord
will renew their strength.
They will soar on wings like eagles;
they will run and not grow weary,
they will walk and not be faint.
Isaiah 40:28-31

We need to hear this today. I sense a weariness among people with all that is happening in the world. I sense a tiredness from trying to keep pace with a world moving faster than ever before. In the middle of all that acceleration and stress, the Lord is still the everlasting God.

God does not grow tired or weary. The everlasting God is as fresh as ever. As strong as ever. He is as present and powerful and caring and just as ever. God is everlasting.

In the midst of our crazy times, we literally look to diets and fitness and nature and escapism and many other things to unplug us from the world. We find success for ourselves. We find what works for me even if it doesn’t work for you. And then we say, to each his own, and we think we are moving forward.

The weariness returns.

Those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. What would that look like for you? You would run this race without becoming weary. You would walk this road and not be faint. You would soar on wings like eagles.

That’s what I am looking for! That sounds like the fountain of youth. Yet it isn’t some mysterious place or trick – it’s the fountain of God’s fulfillment and abundance. This is the power of God at work within each of us.

Those who hope in the Lord…

Do you hope in the Lord today? It’s your day.

Amen.

Marc Kinna
