“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.” (Isaiah 40:28-29)
We get to approach the God with everlasting attached to his name.
The one whose calling card is inscribed with Creator-Savior-King never runs out of stamina, never scratches his head perplexed, never confronts a wall he can’t demolish. All power stands ready at his fingertips; his mind is wrapped around all knowledge. He readily infuses grace into his weary children who wait for him to work all things out for good, most especially when nothing good is presently in the picture.
The Savior of the world is the savior of our little worlds and little lives, too.
On days when we have so little to offer him, when “all of us” hardly amounts to anything, we can still move toward God. Always, he is more than enough for any need we might possibly bring his way.
His Word speaks in our suffocating cramped corners where cobwebs cloud our minds. There we find assurance, loud and clear, high and mighty, tender and strong. Bread before breakfast, supper for the soul. Enough provision and meat aplenty stacked in his Word. His presence is a feast during famine, a barricade for the fight, a breeze that blows away the staleness of unbelief, fear, panic.
No matter what, no matter where, no matter who we face, we cling to the reinforcement that “If God is for us, who can be against us? He who did not spare his own Son but gave him up for us all, how will he not also with him graciously give us all things?” (Romans 8:31-32)
Our God with everlasting attached to his name is for us. He is with us. He always will be just so.
