My anxiety over the problems in and around me is a heavy burden. It’s a burden that easily wears me out. But “the everlasting God, the Lord, the Creator of the ends of the earth does not become weary or tired.”
Psalm 121 reminds us that God does not “slumber or sleep.” Isaiah tells us that “the everlasting God, the Lord, the Creator of the ends of the earth does not become weary or tired.” That’s hard to imagine for people like us who spend a quarter of our time on earth (at least) unconscious in bed. Even when we’re not in bed, a single day full of activity can leave us mentally and physically exhausted. Not God. He never slumbers or sleeps, he never flops on the couch and rests his eyes, he never gets tired at all.
This is encouraging. When my brain is foggy and I’m crashing after a long day, I know I can still bring my requests to a God whose thinking is perfectly clear, and whose ability is not diminished in the slightest by all the other things he’s done that day. I’m not like this. Everything I do wears me down a little more, brings me closer to my limit.
