Do You Not Know? Have You Not Heard?

February 2, 2020


Do You Not Know?    Have You Not Heard?

Sometimes  we need to  come to our senses.      We can get so self-absorbed  into our challenges  in life  that we forget about  God Almighty  and the actuality  of His love for us.      Troubles can hurt deeply — to the point  where that is all  we think about.      We are so distracted  with our efforts  to solve our problems  all by ourselves  that we forget  to look to our Lord  for the help  and strength  we need.

Isaiah wants  to have a word with us  when we get  into these sorts of  tight spots.      Isaiah 40:28-31  wants to wake us up  to the truths  about our lives,

Do you not know?     Have you not heard?
The Everlasting God,  the LORD,  the creator  of the ends of the earth
Does not become  weary or tired.
His understanding  is inscrutable.
He gives strength  to the weary,
And  to him who lacks might  He increases power.
Though youths  grow weary  and tired,
And vigorous young men  stumble badly,
Yet  those who wait  for the LORD
Will  gain new strength;
They will  mount up with wings  like eagles,
They will  run  and not get tired,
They will  walk  and not become weary.

Because  we are all obviously  so weak,  we need to learn  to always turn  to the LORD  for the help we so desperately need.      We have to learn to  “wait for the LORD”.      His timing  and wisdom  in giving us  what we really need  is always  so much better  than anything  our strugglings  an produce.      Only those  who humbly  wait for the LORD  will gain  the strength  they need.

We trust Him because  He is almighty — and He cares.      We’ve heard this  time and again.      We’ve known it  because  we’ve been taught.      But,  we still tend  to get discombobulated  and fearful  with every problem  that comes our way.      That’s why  we need to settle down  and take time  to consider Isaiah’s words  to us.      They are a part  of God’s eternal promises  to us.

With hearts  that look to  the Everlasting God,  our Creator and Redeemer,  we say,  “Hallelujah!      Lord,  thank You  for always being near  and caring for us.     We do know  and we have heard.      Help us to remember  and rest  in You.”
