Why do you complain, Jacob?
Why do you say, Israel,
“My way is hidden from the Lord;
my cause is disregarded by 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.
But there is so much more to this than a beautiful song. This song is a product of the truths written in the bible, in the book of Isaiah. I'm only sharing the last five verses yet I think these are enough to leave you thinking, and thankful. Do you complain? Jacob complained too, and he's Jacob, so rather than beat ourselves (yes, I included myself in this) for complaining, read the words written. They ignite a reflective thought, don't you agree?
"Do you not know? Have you not heard?" Ouch, we know the truth, yet we grumble and complain, rather than accepting and looking up.
He gives strength to the weary
and increases the power of the weak.
Even youths grow tired and weary,
and young men stumble and fall;
but those who hope in the Lord
will renew their strength.
If you hope in the Lord, your strength is renewed!
They will soar on wings like eagles;
they will run and not grow weary,
they will walk and not be faint.
