In the month of October I am trying to memorize as many verses as possible and blogging the challenge here: 31 Bible Verses you should know by heart On day one we talked about God the Creator. For God to be the creator, He needs to have existed before time. Yes, that’s a lot of faith needed there! C.S.Lewis in his book Mere Christianity tries to explain the eternal nature of God like this, “If you picture time as a straight line along which we have to travel, then you must picture God as the whole page on which the line is drawn. We come to the parts of the line one by one: we have to leave A behind before we get to B, and cannot reach C until we leave B behind. God, from above or outside or all round contains the whole line, and sees it all.” It is an excellent illustration to point out that God is above all, beyond time and space, He is eternal.
What does the eternal character of God means to us His children. The following verse is part of Moses’ final blessings on Israel after they've been through a lot, in the desert. Let’s try to memorize this verse and claim this blessing for us.
The eternal God is your refuge, And underneath are the everlasting arms; Deuteronomy 33:27
We can get cozy in the arms of God, because we are safe, secure and the eternal God has promised to be our refuge. This can also become part of our praise. We need to praise God because of His eternal nature and because He has promised eternal life for those who believe in His son Jesus Christ. (John 3:36)
Now to the King eternal, immortal, invisible, to God who alone is wise, be honor and glory forever and ever. Amen. 1 Timothy 2:5
