Do You Know My God?
Do you not know? Have you not heard? The Lord is the everlasting God, the Creator of the ends of the earth. He will not grow tired or weary, and his understanding no one can fathom.
Do you not know? Have you not heard?
Do you detect the urgency and excitement in these questions? If someone said that to me, I would want to know more. What information might the person have that I did not? I would definitely listen to what was said next.
My paraphrase of Isaiah’s words would be, “Do you not know my God? This is important stuff! Let me tell you!”
Draw close to hear what comes next.
Do you not know my God? He is the everlasting God. He has always existed. He was around before time began and will be for all eternity. He has no beginning or end. Before the mountains were born or you brought forth the whole world, from everlasting to everlasting you are God (Psalm 90:2).
Do you not know my God? He is the Creator of the ends of the earth. God was not created, but He created everything on earth and in heaven. In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth (Genesis 1:1). Through him all things were made; without him nothing was made that has been made (John 1:3).
Do you not know my God? He will not grow tired or weary. I get tired or sleepy and have to take a break. God is always awake and ready to help us when we call him. Indeed, he who watches over Israel will neither slumber nor sleep (Psalm 121:4).
Do you not know my God? His understanding no one can fathom. He knows so much more than I could ever know. As the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts (Isaiah 55:9).
Do you not know my God? He knows you.
