"I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End," says the Lord, "who is and who was and who is to come, the Almighty."
Life is difficult, and marriage may be the greatest challenge you have ever faced. But before you're tempted to think you're in it alone, let's remember three awesome attributes about the incredibly intimate God who brought you two together.
God is Omniscent.
The expression "the Alpha and the Omega," referring to the first and last letters of the Greek alphabet, tells us that God knows all things; not one iota of knowledge is beyond him.
Right now, stare at your spouse right in the eyes for ten seconds, but don't say a word. Do you know exactly what your spouse is thinking? God does.
God is Eternal.
The God we can turn to when we are painfully aware of our human limitations has no beginning, and He has no end.
He not only existed from the beginning of time- He existed before there was time. Chew on that one for a minute!
God is Omnipotent.
He controls all things and upholds all things by His power. No thing or person or situation, not Satan or death, can overtake Him or hold Him. God is almight, all powerful.
For I am persuaded that neither death not life, nor angels nor principalities nor powers, nor things present nor things to come, nor height nor depth, nor any other created thing, shall be able to separate us from the Love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord. (Romans 8:38-39)
Lord God, you are omniscient, eternal, and omnipotent- and you care about our marriage. Thank you for not caring from afar, but for coming near to help us whenever we need your wisdom and strength.
1. What situation in your life, or more specifically, in your marriage relationship does this discussion of God's omniscience, eternal nature, and omnipotence speak to?
2. Go through the alphabet, A to Z, and take turns saying a word starting with that letter that describes the Lord.
You'll probably laught when you try to think of a Q and an X....Praise him anyway!
