God is eternal. Frankly, that’s difficult to grasp. “Nothing lasts forever,” my Dad used to say. And he was right except for one thing, or I should say, Someone — God is forever!
Think about it. There is One today who saw what it was like before anything came into existence, who talked with Adam and Eve, who watched over the Children of Israel when they crossed the Red Sea, who was present at the crucifixion of Christ, who watched as Martin Luther nailed his 95 Theses to the door of the Castle Church in 1517, who witnessed the Constitutional Convention in 1787, who saw the Cubs win the World Series in 2016, and who watches over each of us this very minute.
God! God is eternal. He predates time and will exist long after time has died out; He had no beginning and will have no ending. Not only that, but He has always existed as God. That’s right, He didn’t climb His way to the top or earn His exalted position by any means. He is God — always and forever, God!
As I have gotten older, the eternality of God has become more precious to me. He’s with me. And it comforts me to know that when my children and grandchildren and their children’s children grow old (should the Lord tarry), He will be with them too.
It strengthens my faith to know and trust a God who is eternally God … from everlasting to everlasting!
From everlasting to everlasting, You are God. Psalm 90.2
