Prayer: EVERLASTING What a beautiful word in our language, everlasting. It means that it goes on forever and ever. It is sure, definite and complete. It does not break down or stop unexpectedly. You can count on it, rely on it, be convinced of it and always believe in it. That is why it is so special when it is mentioned in the Bible. I have loved you with an everlasting love. Jeremiah 31:3 …that whosoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. John 3:16 The term everlasting life is mentioned at least six times in the New Testament. That gives you a feeling of security and trust. The everlasting that God speaks about in the Bible is and assurance to you that it will endure. God has said his love will be forever. You can believe that His strength never fails. You can know the truth that the life God promises is forever. Most assuredly, I say to you, he who believes in Me has everlasting life. John 6:47 That verse is special, because it uses the present tense, has, and then the term, everlasting life. The life that God offers begins right now when you believe, and extends on forever. God makes His promise sure and secure. The kingdom of God is called an everlasting kingdom. Psalm 145:13 And then it further states: The LORD is the true God, He is the living God and the everlasting king. Jeremiah 10:1 You, O LORD are our Father, our Redeemer from Everlasting is Your name. To add further emphasis, God is called the One who is from everlasting to everlasting. Psalm 90:2 He will endure. He is the same in eternity past before the world began, and the same forever and ever. God uses the term I AM (Exodus 3:14) to identify Himself. Before Me there was no God formed, nor shall there be after Me. I, even I am the LORD… Isaiah 43:10, 11 Rejoice, be glad that the word everlasting is in the Bible, and that it applies to God and to you in your relationship with Him. Joyfully, Joyce
