Leaning on the Everlasting Arm

Isaiah 40:25-31 (NLT)

25   “To whom will you compare me? Who is my equal?” asks the Holy One.

26   Look up into the heavens. Who created all the stars? He brings them out like an army, one after another, calling each by its name. Because of his great power and incomparable strength, not a single one is missing.

27   O Jacob, how can you say the Lord does not see your troubles? O Israel, how can you say God ignores your rights?

28   Have you never heard? Have you never understood? The Lord is the everlasting God, the Creator of all the earth. He never grows weak or weary. No one can measure the depths of his understanding.

29   He gives power to the weak and strength to the powerless.

30   Even youths will become weak and tired, and young men will fall in exhaustion.

31   But those who trust in the Lord will find new strength. They will soar high on wings like eagles. They will run and not grow weary. They will walk and not faint.

God is:

  • Omnipotent
  • Omniscient
  • Omnipresent


Deuteronomy 33:26-29 (NLT)

26   “There is no one like the God of Israel. He rides across the heavens to help you, across the skies in majestic splendor.

27   The eternal God is your refuge, and his everlasting arms are under you. He drives out the enemy before you; he cries out, ‘Destroy them!’

28   So Israel will live in safety, prosperous Jacob in security, in a land of grain and new wine, while the heavens drop down dew.

29   How blessed you are, O Israel! Who else is like you, a people saved by the Lord? He is your protecting shield and your triumphant sword! Your enemies will cringe before you, and you will stomp on their backs!”
