J. I. Packer in Knowing God points to three questions in Isaiah 40:25, 27 and 28 concerning our attitude towards God when we are feeling down. One has to do with our wrong thoughts about God, one has to do with our wrong thoughts about ourselves, and the third has to do with our slowness to believe in God’s Majesty, His loving Greatness and great Grace towards us, even in our least Godly moments. This final brief post on the Majesty of God also comes from J. I. Packer…
J. I. Packer writes…
Have you not known?
Have you not heard?
The Lord is the everlasting God,
the Creator of the ends of the earth.
He does not faint or grow weary;
his understanding is unsearchable.
Isaiah 40:28 ESV
“This question rebukes our slowness to believe in God’s majesty. God would shame us out of our unbelief. What is the trouble? he asks: have you been imagining that I, the Creator, have grown old and tired? Has nobody ever told you the truth about me?
“The rebuke is well deserved by many of us. How slow we are to believe in God as God, sovereign, all-seeing and almighty!
“How little we make of the majesty of our Lord and Saviour Christ!
“The need for us is to ‘wait upon the Lord’ in meditation of his majesty, till we find our strength renewed through the writing of these things upon our hearts.”
