This morning at Church we sang a song containing the line 'You are the Everlasting God' and it got me thinking and thinking.............. These days we live in a 'disposable' society when we purchase something we hope it lasts but more often than not it is more to do its job for a season or for the purpose for that time. When we got married everything was new - folks gifted us wonderful presents for our wedding for our new home. We were set - towels, plates, furniture etc etc. But a number of years later and we have found we have had to purchase new towels, we have had our fair share of smashed crockery, we had items that broke down and would no longer work.
We have all seen those television adverts for batteries that go on and on - but you know; there still comes a point when they run out, they expire, no power left. They are useless and need replacing.
But today I was struck once again by the permanency of God, the fact He will not run out, expire, break, falter or fail. He will not be replaced by a better model with a superior spec or better design - He is EVERLASTING! He is amazing - nothing and no one compares to Him there is nothing or no one that will remain as constant as He does!
The dictionary defines the word 'everlasting' as eternal, never-ending, endless, perpetual, undying, immortal, deathless, indestructible, immutable, abiding, enduring, infinite, boundless, timeless - that is my God, that is the King of Kings - indestructible - wow - everlasting God!!!! Dwell on that for a moment and surely your view of Him will just get greater and greater!!!!
