God’s endless energy

“Have you never heard? Have you never understood? The LORD is the everlasting God, the Creator of all the earth. He never grows weak or weary. No one can measure the depths of his understanding” (Isaiah 40:28, NLT).

We have earthquakes all the time in Southern California, most of which we don’t notice because they are so small on the Richter scale. Every now and then a stronger one shakes us up and reminds us a big one could be in our future. When this happens, geologists talk about the earth releasing energy. Major weather events, such as tornadoes, hurricanes and tsunamis, are also described as having massive energy.

All the energy we see around us is minuscule compared to God’s energy. He never grows weak or weary and never needs sleep. His vitality, vigor and potency (great synonyms of energy) are off the charts—these words don’t even begin to describe the life force which is God. He is life and he is the source of life. How blessed we are that in his love and by his grace, he chooses to share his life with us, both now and for eternity.
