“I am the Alpha and the Omega—the beginning and the end,” says the Lord God. “I am the one who is, who always was, and who is still to come—the Almighty One.” Revelation 1:8 NLT
The more we know about God, the more we come to trust Him with our lives. When we believe in the Sovereignty of God, or that He is the Supreme power and authority in the world our lives will be very different from the people that don’t believe this or know this.
God says, “I am the beginning and the end.”
God says, “I am”
God says, “I was”
God says, “I will be the One still to come.
He is all in all. He is everything including our Creator. He knows everything about us according to the scripture, including the numbers of hairs on our heads. He sees sparrows when they fall. He knows exactly where you are today and what is going on in your life and He cares.
Jesus said, “25 “That is why I tell you not to worry about everyday life—whether you have enough food and drink, or enough clothes to wear. Isn’t life more than food, and your body more than clothing? 26 Look at the birds. They don’t plant or harvest or store food in barns, for your heavenly Father feeds them. And aren’t you far more valuable to him than they are?” Matthew 6:25-26 NLT
And He said,
“Look at the lilies of the field and how they grow. They don’t work or make their clothing, 29 yet Solomon in all his glory was not dressed as beautifully as they are. 30And if God cares so wonderfully for wildflowers that are here today and thrown into the fire tomorrow, he will certainly care for you. Why do you have so little faith?” Matthew 6:28-30 NLT
Our God is the same yesterday, today and forever! He loves you and will give you the grace you need today if you only believe. Trust Him with your life and trust Him with your eternity. Trust Him in your journey.
“What we have to understand is that Jesus is not offering to make our problems disappear; he's offering to give us rest for our souls while he does the heavy lifting.” ― Linda Evans Shepherd
“That which should distinguish the suffering of believers from unbelievers is the confidence that our suffering is under the control of an all-powerful and all-loving God. Our suffering has meaning and purpose in God's eternal plan, and He brings or allows to come into our lives only that which is for His glory and our good.” ― Jerry Bridges
“We think in terms of apostolic journeys. God dares to put His greatest ambassadors in chains.”
― Watchman Nee, The Normal Christian Life
