Hast thou not known? hast thou not heard, that the everlasting God, the LORD, the Creator of the ends of the earth, fainteth not, neither is weary? there is no searching of his understanding. (Isaiah 40:28 KJV)

I do believe that He never wearies – but we sure did and will spend a couple of days resting up after a wonderful vacation. When you stop to think that half of our foursome had some physical limitations, we did very well to see all that we did. We did become weary, and being home is a huge comfort.

And a certain scribe came, and said unto him, Master, I will follow thee whithersoever thou goest. And Jesus saith unto him, The foxes have holes, and the birds of the air have nests; but the Son of man hath not where to lay his head. (Matthew 8:19-20 KJV)

Three years He walked across desert, sailed on fishing boats, spoke to crowds, counseled one-on-one and did not turn rocks into bread nor use a throne. He did not call down ten thousand angels, He did not give in to temptation. Oh, angels ministered:

Then the devil leaveth him, and, behold, angels came and ministered unto him. (Matthew 4:11 KJV)

He also had a couple of visitors from home:

And after six days Jesus taketh Peter, James, and John his brother, and bringeth them up into an high mountain apart, And was transfigured before them: and his face did shine as the sun, and his raiment was white as the light. And, behold, there appeared unto them Moses and Elias talking with him. (Matthew 17:1-3 KJV)

He knew home was in His future:

And as they came down from the mountain, Jesus charged them, saying, Tell the vision to no man, until the Son of man be risen again from the dead. And his disciples asked him, saying, Why then say the scribes that Elias must first come? And Jesus answered and said unto them, Elias truly shall first come, and restore all things. But I say unto you, That Elias is come already, and they knew him not, but have done unto him whatsoever they listed. Likewise shall also the Son of man suffer of them. (Matthew 17:9-12 KJV)

Though wearied, worn and away from home, He endured:

Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God. (Hebrews 12:2 KJV)

We are promised to appear before the judgment seat:

for we shall all stand before the judgment seat of Christ. (Romans 14:10b KJV)

Do not grow too weary before reaching that point!
