Topic: The Everlasting God (Open Heaven 2 February 2021)
Memorise: 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
Read: Isaiah 40:27-29 (KJV)
27 Why sayest thou, O Jacob, and speakest, O Israel, My way is hid from the LORD, and my judgment is passed over from my God?
28 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.
29 He giveth power to the faint; and to them that have no might he increaseth strength.
Bible In One Year: Leviticus 7-8
To be everlasting is to be alive forever. This means that one does not grow old. Our God is ageless. He created time; therefore it has no effect on Him. Psalms 90:4 says:
For a thousand years in thy sight are but as yesterday when it is past, and as a watch in the night.
God cannot be contained or restrained by time. Even when it seems as if God may be late in showing up, you can count on Him to do what He says He will, at the right time. The ‘Everlasting-ness’ of God means we should never be afraid of the future. God is in our tomorrow and when we are long gone; He will still be there. We can trust Him to carry us through our lifetime and even keep our children in His care. You don’t have to worry about your children or grandchildren; the Everlasting God will keep them. God is reliable because He is everlasting. You know that nobody can kill Him, nobody can dethrone Him and nobody can reduce His power. Once you put something in His hands, you can go to sleep knowing it is secure.
God’s ‘Everlasting-ness’ gives us hope of becoming everlasting as well when we are finally conformed to the image of His dear Son – Jesus Christ. We also will live forever because we have His Spirit. We Christians cannot die; when we close our eyes here on earth, we will open them in everlasting life. There is no death or any of its cousins like pain and sickness in heaven.
Who shall change our vile body, that it may be fashioned like unto His glorious body, according to the working whereby he is able even to subdue all things unto Himself. – Philippians 3:21
Do you want to have everlasting life? Then you have to live holy. Hebrews 12:14 says without holiness you cannot see God. Commit to a life of holiness from today.
Praise God because He is everlasting.
Praise him! praise him! tell of his excellent greatness!
Praise Him! Praise Him! ever in joyful song!
