Our God is Eternal

“But you, O LORD, reign forever; your throne endures to all generations.” Lamentations 5:19 (ESV)

God is wholly different than that which He created. Whereas all of creation is confined to space and time, God exists beyond them. Time is a consequence of His Being. He is, and, therefore, everything else is, progressing toward that which He has predestined and decreed. We must never lose sight of this remarkable truth about the nature of God, knowing that we, as His beloved, can become overwhelmed by the present and lose perspective. What an encouragement it is, however, for His children in the midst of doubt to remember the sovereign hand of the Lord by which our steps are directed and our lives secured.

Child of God, take comfort in the nature of God. Remember His eternality and rest in His authority for all time over that which He created. Further, as a subject in the Kingdom of God, never fail, regardless of circumstance, to serve with gladness our King of glory. Building His Kingdom is our chief concern, knowing that in building His Kingdom we bring about peace and security as we destroy the effects of sin and death.

The Lord is a mighty King, who reigns for all of eternity. May we take comfort in our protector and serve gladly our gracious sovereign.

Grace and peace,

Eternal

“Trust in the LORD forever, for the LORD, the LORD, is the Rock eternal.” Isaiah 26:4 (NIV)

God is eternal. God was not born and will not die. God will not become something; He is. God is above time. He is not limited by our space and time constraints. God is perpetual and everlasting. God has been and will always be.

  • “Abraham planted a tamarisk tree in Beersheba, and there he called upon the name of the LORD, the Eternal God.” Gen 21:33 (NIV)
  • “Now to him who is able to establish you by my gospel and the proclamation of Jesus Christ, according to the revelation of the mystery hidden for long ages past, but now revealed and made known through the prophetic writings by the command of the eternal God, so that all nations might believe and obey him–to the only wise God be glory forever through Jesus Christ! Amen.” Romans 16:25-27 (NIV)

You were born and you will one day die if the Lord tarries His coming. You have a specific birthday to celebrate. Your days upon the earth are temporal. Yet, our Eternal God created you for relationship. You were made by God to bring Him pleasure and to fulfill His purposes in your lifetime. Though you are finite, our infinite God has prepared the way for you to know Him personally, intimately, and eternally.

Has God invited you to join Him in a God-sized assignment? Are you facing any decisions that require looking beyond your own strength and personal ability? If so, you are in a wonderful position to experience God as the Rock eternal. Where God guides He always provides.

Pursuing God,
