“Do you know or have youheard? The Lord is theeternal God, creator of the ends of theearth. He does not faint or grow weary,and his knowledge is beyond allscrutiny.” - Isaiah 40:28, NAB
Last Sunday we celebrated the 2nd Sunday of Advent. It should have been a day of praise. Today is the 3rd Sunday of Advent. Think of it as a happy Lent. Everything we do is in anticipation of the coming of the King. It’s a season of quiet waiting, and we wait with joy.
So, do you know or have you heard? It’s not like it’s a secret you know. That God is eternal and is the creator of all life. Since He is the source of life, He doesn’t grow tired, He doesn’t get weak. He doesn’t suffer from the human affliction. The human body grows weak, faint and weary, but not God. That’s why there’s a spirit of Christmas…it goes on and on. We never get tired of Christmas. We get weary of the consumerism of it, but not the spirit of it. The Lord helps us out by “juicing” us when we start to get spiritually faint or weary. Christmas is an embodiment of this. It seems, no matter how tired we get of it…we have a little more strength, a little more spirit. We strive to understand its focal point…God. And with that we keep hoping and praying for peace, and joy. Not the kind that quits after the season, but the kind that’s just like God…eternal. We have a lot of questions, but we’re not listening to the answers. Those answers are all around us. If we just stop, look and listen…we just may see the eternal God in all of it.
Until next time….pray for peace…luv ya!
