Beginnings, Day 5: Beginning and End

Revelation 1:8 -- "I am the Alpha and the Omega,” says the Lord God, “who is, and who was, and who is to come, the Almighty."

This story begins and ends with God. God created the world and God will create a world anew that is free of sin. God is the beginning and the ends and everything in between. He is the one who is, who was and who will be. He encompasses all history, the past, present and future.

Right now, in this present moment, He wants to know us and He wants for us to know Him. That is why He created us, so He could have a relationship with His children. That is why He teaches us knowledge and wisdom, so we can learn and grown in His love. That is why He gave us a choice, so we could have a strong bond out of love instead of bondage. That is why He equips us with His Word, so we can fight for our freedom and the promise of a new world without sin or separation from Him.

By knowing where we come from we can understand where we are going. The beauty is God is with us every single step of the way. When we fall He picks us up, when we get lost He finds us, when we are weary He gives us strength, when we are covered with darkness He showers us with light. God created us, God loves us and He has a beautiful plan for us, individually and as His beloved nation.

What are you waiting for? Do I hear an AMEN!!!

Dear Lord,
Thank you for the beginning and for the end, thank you for everything in between. Thank you for creating me, for granting me wisdom and a choice, and for equipping me with Your Word. Thank you for the hope of a new world apart from sin and forever united with you. Thank you for loving me, your child, so much from the beginning to the end.
