Eternity. What a concept! A concept that has always fascinated me, at least. We will live forever. Always. No ending. And then we think of God who is eternal, everlasting and omniscient (all knowing) and omnipresent (always present). This is mind boggling or as the Apostle Paul writes;
33 Oh, the depth of the riches and wisdom and knowledge of God! How unsearchable are His judgments and decisions and how unfathomable and untraceable are His ways! 34 For who has known the mind of the Lord, or who has been His counselor? Romans 11:33-34 AMP a
Ponder on this:
‘Not only will God exist undiminished everlastingly into the future, but He has existed identically throughout the infinite past. Not only has God himself existed eternally into the past, but so also has His plan for His creation. Before the foundations of the world, God ordained the Creation, the Fall, the Incarnation and Resurrection, and the Salvation of His people. This is a wondrous truth for the believer for it grants him confidence in the tenacity of his faith.

How amazing our God…how glorious.
