Notice in these next verses how when the people of Israel grew weary God asks have you not known and have you not heard that I am the everlasting Lord, the creator of the whole Earth. God knew the reason for all of their weariness…they had doubted that God was the creator of the world. There is strength in knowing the answers to the Truth in the creation versus evolution debate. Verse (30) is important for parents and those in youth ministry:
God wants the youth and the young to know that without the Truth of God as the creator God, they will grow weary and fall exhausted. Isaiah then describes those that wait and trust in the Lord…renewed strength. Not only renewed strength, but strength that will walk, run, and fly.
Weary Christian children fall exhausted for the lack of Truth about their creator God.
Is 40:28 Have you not known? Have you not heard? The Lord is the everlasting God, the Creator of the ends of the earth. He does not faint or grow weary; his understanding is unsearchable. Is 40:29 He gives power to the faint, and to him who has no might he increases strength. Is 40:30 Even youths shall faint and be weary, and young men shall fall exhausted; Is 40:31 but they who wait for the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings like eagles; they shall run and not be weary; they shall walk and not faint.
The central points of these verses.
- Have you not known
- Have you not heard
- God is the creator of the whole earth
- The full understanding of creation is unsearchable [God is found in faith, not science]
- This knowledge gives power and strength
- Youth grow weary and fall exhausted without the understanding of the Truth of creation
- This knowledge of creation renews the strength of the youth and the young
The God of the Bible knows the importance of the Truth of creation, within the Truth is strength. Satan wants to sap that strength and power from you and your Christian children. There could be no better proof of the existence of God and Satan then when you see the debate between the evolutionists, and creationist. You will see that this is not a debate between superior knowledge and ignorance. This is an iron-fisted effort of atheist to teach your Christian children an anti-god agenda. They know that it will weaken your Christian children to exhaustion and in exhaustion they will fail. Satan knows scripture and uses this Truth to great effect.
I have written you this poem that you might reflect on these two questions.
Those against God laugh, Christians weep
While atheist work, Christians sleep
They are bold, and we are meek
On the Day of Judgment what will God speak?
For Satan, atheists toil and slave
For God, Christians recoil and cave
How could a message so glorious and great
Go so silent in the face of hate?
