817. God is great and everlasting, wait upon God
God is great and everlasting, wait upon God – Isaiah 40:14-17, Isaiah 40:28-31
13 Who hath directed the Spirit of the Lord, or being his counsellor hath taught him?
14 With whom took he counsel, and who instructed him, and taught him in the path of judgment, and taught him knowledge, and shewed to him the way of understanding?
15 Behold, the nations are as a drop of a bucket, and are counted as the small dust of the balance: behold, he taketh up the isles as a very little thing.
16 And Lebanon is not sufficient to burn, nor the beasts thereof sufficient for a burnt offering.
17 All nations before him are as nothing; and they are counted to him less than nothing, and vanity.
28 Hast thou not known? hast thou not heard, that the everlasting God, the Lord, the Creator of the ends of the earth, fainteth not, neither is weary? there is (and so there is) no searching of his understanding.
29 He giveth power to the faint; and to them that have no might he increaseth strength (strength for defense).
30 Even the youths shall faint and be weary, and the young men shall utterly fall:
31 But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew (change for the better) their strength (strength to endure); they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.
God is great and everlasting, wait upon God
