The God of forever (Psalm 27-28; Jeremiah 50)

“Oh, save your people and bless your heritage!  Be their shepherd and carry them forever.”  Psalm 28:9

It sometimes seems as if we get locked into each moment without any thought to what has happened before and what is happening around us.  Maybe you are asking, “What are you talking about?”  As a follower of Christ we must always think with a big picture in mind.  We serve a God who has a forever plan.

Think it through:

David speaks of God in familiar terms in Psalm 28, “He is the rock.”  As the Rock, God is forever the same.

In David’s life we see him pleading with the Rock (Vs: 2-5).  We read of David praising the Rock (Vs: 6).  We read of Davids great peace because of the Rock (Vs: 7-9).  

Brothers and sisters, God’s plan is a forever plan.  You and I do not have to worry that we are not going to exist beyond this moment.  We do not have to worry that the enemy is overtaking God’s plan.  Notice what Isaiah wrote:

Listen to me, O house of Israel, all the remnant of the house of Israel, who have been borne by me from before your birth, carried from the womb; even to your old age I am he, and to grey hairs I will carry you, I have made, and I will bear; I will carry and save,” Isaiah 46:3-4

Our response:

You and I can trust in our Rock to complete the work he has started in us.  You and I must realize that the work began before we were born and we must realize we are a peace in God’s great puzzle in accomplishing His glorious work on the earth.  This day, take heart in the fact that you are standing on the Rock of ages who is forever!!! Praise His holy name.
