God Doesn't Wear Out

by Paul Merideth

“Of old you laid the foundation of the earth, and the heavens are the work of your hands. They will perish, but you will remain; they will all wear out like a garment. You will change them like a robe, and they will pass away, but you are the same, and your years have no end.” (Psalm 102:25-27)

Do you ever feel worn out? In Hebrews 1:10-12, the writer draws from Psalm 102:25-27 in order to highlight the reality that God is all-powerful and everlasting. Though the world wears out, the Lord re­mains forever. Amazingly, the author is connecting the power of God with the nature of the Son. Jesus Christ is the agency of creation itself, and that role rightly entitles him to divine privilege. That means all humanity is under the authority of Jesus. There is nothing and no one higher in supremacy than him. Christ is incomparably great. The superiority of the Christian faith is grounded upon the lordship of Je­sus.

So, in your moments of spiritual exhaustion lean on Jesus. He is the sustainer of the universe, and he can hold you up. Jesus never goes out of date. He never gets old and fragile. He never feels exhaus­tion from being too busy. He is strong enough to bear your burdens. When you feel worn out think about Jesus. Think about his ability to constantly empower you for faith. It’s not just about what he did for you in the past at the cross. It’s also about what he continues to do each day in the lives of believers. You can trust his sustaining power for your soul because he doesn’t wear out.
