I am the Alpha and the Omega, the First and the Last, the Beginning and the End.
– Revelation 22:13
Today I am thankful that God is the beginning and the end.
God is the beginning. He is the Creator, the source of all love and joy and peace. At the sound of His voice and at the stretch of His hand, miracles happen. Each of us exist because God lovingly decided to weave us into His story. God is my beginning.
God is also the last. He is the final word, the One who finishes what He begins. He will be standing victorious as this world passes away, with all majesty and honor due Him as the King of Kings. When my time here is complete, He will be the first I see as my eyes open in Heaven. God is my eternity.
My God is everlasting. He always was and forever will be. His promises hold the same time-table. His loving kindness and mercy have no end.
If God can hold time together, from beginning to end, He can and will hold my life firmly in His hands. God goes before me and behind me, guiding and protecting me. My future is secure with the One who is the First and the Last.
God is my beginning and my end. May He reign in my life every moment in between!
