God was, and will be, more than we can imagine

“I am the Alpha and the Omega, the First and the Last, the Beginning and the End.”  Revelation 22:13.

Verse chosen from today’s Bible reading: Ezekiel 42-44, and Revelation 22.

There are Scriptures that I can’t understand.  They’re written in English but that doesn’t help me to grasp them.

In today’s chosen verse God is described as the beginning and the end.  I am left wondering what was before the beginning and what will be after the end.

I won’t be figuring those things out, I suspect.

There is a graspable truth, however.  God is beyond anything I can imagine.  I don’t have the firepower to figure Him out.

I get the sense, in reading Revelation, that John was equally overwhelmed by what he was told.  He wrote what he heard but wasn’t clear as to what it all meant.  I take comfort in that.

God has done marvelous things.  God will do more marvelous things.  My task is to get right what He wants me to do now and in the future.

I saw a remarkable full moon last night.  That was God’s doing.  He gave me the eyesight.  He put the moon in place where I could see it.  And yet, I see through a glass dimly!

“Lord, You are amazing.  Forgive me for ever minimizing Your magnitude.  Nothing overwhelms You.  What You have done and what You will do are beyond my comprehension.  I want to be part of what You are doing now and in the future.  Direct me in that direction, I beg.  I love You, Lord.”

God is more than You can imagine.  Recognize who He is and live accordingly.

Alpha and Omega

s17“I am the Alpha and the Omega, the First and the Last, the Beginning and the End.”  Revelation 22:13

(Verse chosen from today’s Bible reading – Ezekiel 42-44 & Revelation 22)

Well, that about covers everything!

Alpha and Omega are the first and last letters of the Greek alphabet.

God was there before time began.  Try to get a grip on that thought.

Nothing will happen after Him.  He’s eternal.  More of the hard-to-imagine things about God.

This is also another evidence of God’s greatness.  Mind cannot conceive……..

My complete trust must be in this great God.  There is no lesser being.  Everyone else is “least.”

God created the earth and its inhabitants.  Like the potter and the clay, he knows what my purpose is.  My goal is to be doing His Will.  To be where He wants me to be.

As a believer, I am in God’s family.  I will spend eternity with Him.  Wow!

“Lord, You are amazing!  You are the beginning and the end and everything in between.  Why would I trust/consider counterfeit idols?  There is no reason I can give.  Forgive me, for chasing lesser things.  May everything I do be what You want me doing.  Show me the way O Lord for to You I entrust my life.”
