Week Ten: He Is The Lord!

13 Jan

“Do you not know? Have you not heard? 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.”

Isaiah 40:28

A couple of years back when I attended Calvary of Albuquerque, Pastor Chuck Smith came to teach and he said something that has stuck with me, and will probably continue to stick with me, for years. When we encounter LORD in the Bible, we are to think of when God revealed Himself to Moses at Mt. Sinai in Exodus 34:6-7. This is what that passage says of the Lord: He is compassionate, gracious, slow to anger, abounding in mercy and faithfulness extending mercy to thousands; forgiving rebellion, wickedness, and sin. So take all of that and add what else this verse has to say. He is without end, He created absolutely everything, He does not get tired or weary, and He has unlimited understanding. How beautiful is the Lord? He is literally unfathomable. He is absolutely immeasurable in every way. He never gets weary at all, which also means that He doesn’t get weary with us. I love this verse because it always challenges me to look past theology and doctrine and religion and just see God. The Creator, the Father, the Savior, the Friend, and I could go on and on. And not only do I get to see God but I get such strong reassurance of my faith because I know that He is all of these things and so much more! Never lose sight of who God really is and never stop praising Him for it!

Pray: God thank you for being who you are despite who I am. For being not only a perfect Creator but also an amazing Father and loving Lord. You are everything that I could ever want or need and I thank you for Your amazing grace and compassion.

Ask Yourself: How am I approaching God? With reverence and awe or is it more like blah? When you hear that God loves you and died for you are you really thinking of the vast, weightiness of that statement?

Apply: Just take a step back and think about the Lord. Think about His attributes. Spend time just praising God for who He is, what He has done, and what He is doing now.

P.S: There are people who “do not know” and “have not heard” of the amazing God that we serve. Jesus calls us in Matthew 28 to make disciples of all nations. So spread the gospel this week because lives do depend on it. People are desperate and hurting and this God, who is everything that we could ever need, is the only hope!
