Have you not known? Have you not heard? The everlasting God, the Lord, The Creator of the ends of the earth, Neither faints nor is weary. His understanding is unsearchable

What an incredible truth! Our God is the eternal One. He is self-existent.  He is the God of Heaven, the One who spoke the world into existence (Gen 1). Our God is a God of power and great might.  He does not tire, nor grow weak, but actively works in the lives of men.  He provides our needs (Matthew 5). He gives strength to the weak. He heals the sick. He grants peace to those who follow after Him.  He listens to and answers prayers. We see all these “pressures,” and “responsibilities” and yet He never buckles.  He never needs a vacation or calls in sick.

The verse says “His understanding is unsearchable.” One commentator wrote:

it is infinite, it reaches to all persons and things, and therefore he cannot be at a loss to provide for his people, or plead their cause; nor can their case be unknown to him, or he want either power or skill to help them.

The Lord Himself said “For My thoughts are not your thoughts, Nor are your ways My ways,” says the Lord. “For as the heavens are higher than the earth, So are My ways higher than your ways, And My thoughts than your thoughts.” (Isaiah 55:8-9)

We don’t understand why things happen or don’t happen, but that’s okay, because we know and trust the One who does.  Not only does He know the “why,” He can handle the “how.”  Not only that, He promises “…that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose.” (Rom 8:28)

Praise God!
