Truths from God’s Word
|v. 28 “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.”||The Lord our God created everything; and He is a loving God, merciful and; and we may not always understand His ways, but we can always trust Him.|
|v. 29 “He gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak.”||When we call on His name, He will listen. He is our helper and our source of strength.|
|v. 30 “Even youths grow tired and weary, and young men stumble and fall;”||If we only use our own strength and wisdom, or the strength and wisdom of other people (such as the government officials or even our own parents and teachers), we can only do so much. The wisdom and strength of people is not enough.|
|V. 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.”||But if we trust and depend on God, no storm is too big, no pain too great, no obstacle too difficult. God will help us overcome and be victorious. He will not let us fall; He will lift us up, sustain us and strengthen us.|
If we put our hope in Him and trust Him with all our hearts, then He will sustain us!
