Pondering God (Part 3)

3 May. Continuing our study of who God is. Eternal, everlasting, forever. He was, and is, and is to come. NOT He was, He is and He will be. There is no 'will be' about God as if He were underdeveloped. He is always at full capacity. Nothing wearies Him; nothing in the universe stops Him. 

Some look at the Hebrew name "YHVH" which some call "Jehovah" or "Yahweh" or any number of odd alternatives. In that four-letter word are all three tenses of the Hebrew verb "to be." Some Bible versions translate "YHVH" as "The Eternal" as a result. 

The Bible says, "From everlasting to everlasting, He is." "Before the mountains were born or You gave birth to the earth and the world, Even from everlasting to everlasting, You are God." (Psalm 90.2)

I suppose some assurances from this reality include (but are not limited to) His not being surprised by anything, thus He has a plan, and that plan will find fulfillment. Unlike the old folks at the nursing home, His faculties are strong and continual, without disappointment firstly to Himself! Then to us who count on Him. 

Isn't God good?
