In life, nothing lasts forever .As a matter of fact, the only permanent thing is change. However, our God is an everlasting God. He has been there since the beginning of creation; He will continue to be there even when the world has passed away. He is the solid Rock of Ages, the one who was and is and forever will be. He is the unchanging changer. No one compares to Him. The Psalmists puts it so beautifully Psalm 90 v. 2 “Before the mountains were brought forth, or ever thou hast formed the earth and the world, even from everlasting to everlasting, thou art God.”
If there is one name of our Lord Almighty that I love so much, this is it. God is so faithful! Even to the very end. He is Loyal, He is Constant, He is Steadfast, and He is Resolute, Ever faithful, ever sure. He does not abandon us to our fate, He always sees us through to the very end. That song, “Great is thy faithfulness “also tells us “there is no shadow of turning with Him.” He will do what He says He will do. He promised in Joshua 1 v. 5 “ I will not fail thee, nor forsake thee” Again, the Psalmist says in Psalm 89 v. 1,5,8 and 33 “ I will sing of the mercies of the Lord for ever; with my mouth will I make known thy faithfulness to all generations. And the heavens shall praise thy wonders O Lord: thy faithfulness also in the congregation of thy saints. O Lord God of Hosts, who is a strong Lord like unto thee? Or thy faithfulness round about thee? Nevertheless thy loving kindness will I not utterly take from him, nor suffer my faithfulness to fail”
When we ascribe greatness to someone, it means that He is eminent, distinguished or remarkable in magnitude. Indeed, God is great and greatly to be praised. In the words of Psalm 48 v. 1,”Great is the Lord and greatly to be praised” He has done so many great and mighty acts that we cannot even begin to recount them.
God is a holy God. The dictionary defines “holy “as exalted or worthy of complete devotion as one perfect in goodness and righteousness” Another definition of “holy” is “divine” Psalm 99 v. 5and 9 says “ Exalt ye the Lord our God, and worship at His footstool; for He is holy. Exalt the Lord our God and worship at His holy hill; for the Lord our God is holy”. Even the words of a favorite song capture this quality of our God. “Holy, holy holy, Lord God almighty, early in the morning our song shall rise to thee. Holy, holy holy, merciful and mighty, God in three persons, blessed trinity”.
“And Moses said unto God, behold, when I come unto the children of Israel, and shall say unto them, The God of your fathers hath sent me unto you; and they shall say unto me, what is the his name? What shall I say unto them? And God said unto Moses, I AM THAT I AM: and he said, Thus shall thou say unto the children of Israel, The Lord God of your fathers, the God of Abraham, of Isaac, and the God of Jacob hath sent me unto you: this is my name for ever, and this is my memorial unto all generations.”[Exodus 3 v. 14and 15.
