Thou Art From Everlasting

Thy throne is established of old: Thou art from everlasting.  --Psalm 93:2

We possess, and have within our control, a powerful relationship with God.  God established the universe, the light, and all that is; down to, and including, the fingerprints on your very fingers.  Our relationship with God is ours to work as we choose.  God meets us wherever we are.

The thing we should know about God is that through the love God shared with humanity through Jesus Christ we can be completely certain that love never fails.  If we are going through tough times, we can turn to God.  If we are going through good times, God will rejoice with us.  The love of God never fails.

Charles Spurgeon put it this way, which I found powerful:

If God should spare your life to fulfill your full day of threescore years and ten, you will find that his cleansing fountain is still opened, and his precious blood has not lost its power; you shall find that the Priest who filled the healing fount with his own blood, lives to purge you from all iniquity. When only your last battle remains to be fought, you shall find that the hand of your conquering Captain has not grown feeble—the living Saviour shall cheer the dying saint. When you enter heaven you shall find him there bearing the dew of his youth; and through eternity the Lord Jesus shall still remain the perennial spring of joy, and life, and glory to his people.(1)

Gracious Captain and Priest of our lives, we celebrate joyously that you birthed us into your creation surrounded by the love of your son, Jesus Christ.  Fill us with your assurance of forgiveness, the grace to express your mercy, and humility to return all measures of success back to Your loving care throughout this life and the next.  In Christ's name we pray.  Amen.
