Text: Psalms 41:13
Blessed be the Lord God of Israel from everlasting, and to everlasting. Amen, and Amen.
The Lord our God is also called the God of Israel. He dwells in eternity unending. He occupies eternity such that He knows the happenings within time before they occur. No matter what anyone is passing through or may have passed through, God knows it all even before it started. He is the Creator of all things and has power over all He created. No wonder the Psalmist says He is blessed from everlasting to everlasting. To wit, no matter the generation in which you exist on earth, the Lord remains the same and faithful even for ever more. There is therefore nothing that ought to make any that is of God to quiver for the blessedness of the Father is from everlasting to everlasting. And because God is a good Father, there is nothing He will not do for His children according to His will. He that did not spare His only begotten Son for our sake, there is nothing else He would withhold from us. That is why it is sure that if indeed you belong to God, His everlasting arms are underneath you to do as He purposes in whatever situation you find yourself. His blessedness is sufficient in your lack or trials. Because He is blessed, you are also blessed because you belong to Him. Your concern is to ensure He is constantly with you: for when He is your Shepherd, you surely shall not want. Rejoice therefore in the Lord from now if indeed He is your Father. Rest on Him. He will see you through. Your testimonies are sure.
Father, I put my totality into your hands: help me to overcome my challenges, both immediate and remote in Jesus name.
