Ever-flowing Stream Of Grace

(Chrisitans Need to Remember)

Isaiah 40:28-31 says, "Do you not know? Have you not heard? The LORD is the everlasting God, the Creator of the ends of the earth.

Do You Not Know" Have You Not Heard?: The language of the prophet is one of reproving. We know that by reading Verse 27 which reveals to us the heart of the Jews who became melancholy, complaining and whining. Listen to their words of despair, "...My way is hidden from the Lord: my cause is disregarded by my God." These people nourished depression, needless fears, and mistrust. Not trusting in God's truths sets the stage of a skeptical atmosphere. This births forth a questioning spirit. The Jewish people had an abundant opportunity of learning through their history and from their fathers of the true character of God. They had opportunity to learn of His willingness and ability to deliver them. These Jews had a blameworthy forgetfulness and disregard for the nature of God.

Disappointments can breed mistrust in truth and tear down faith in the Lord, literally stopping the desire of searching for Biblical truth or understanding. Once this starts it becomes like an electricity of unbelief in the air and must not be breathed in, but rejected because it affects the spiritual health of the Body of Christ.

Christians need to remember that God does not measure time as we do. It is impossible for Him to be unmindful or uncaring of our situations. The child of God who believes this recalls God's faithfulness to heroes of the faith in the Bible and to Christians they have known personally. Christians who desire God's grace walk in obedience to the Holy Spirit, they trust in the Lord. They know the promise of Psalm 155:11 "[Those] who fear Him, trust in the LORD- He is their help and shield."
