We as christians know God is an eternal God and he was before the creation of the world, and will be for all eternity as he also through his Son Jesus promised us eternal life to all who believe in him! God inhabits eternity and is close to all that are humble and lowly. “For thus saith the high and lofty One that inhabiteth eternity, whose name is Holy; I dwell in the high and holy place, with him also that is of a contrite and humble spirit, to revive the spirit of the humble, and to revive the heart of the contrite ones”.
God is our refuge from any storms of this life, and he takes away our enemies from before us. He is a our shield and buckler and a help when trouble befalls us! “There is none like unto the God of Je-shu’-run (Jerusalem), who rideth upon the heaven in thy help, and in his excellency on the sky. The eternal God is thy refuge, and underneath are the everlasting arms: and he shall thrust out the enemy from before thee; and shall say destroy them”.(Deuteronomy 33:26,27). “God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble. Be still, and know that I am God: I will be exalted among the heathen, I will be exalted in the earth”.
God is so gracious and loves us so much that although we are ridiculed by our earthly family and friends at times, he provides us with a spiritual family that will inhabit eternity. “And Jesus answered and said. Verily I say unto you, There is no man that hath left house, or brethren, or sisters, or father, or mother, or wife, or children, or lands, for my sake, and the gospel’s, But he shall receive an hundredfold now in this time, houses, and brethren, and sisters, and mothers, and children, and lands, with persecutions; and in the world to come eternal life”.(Mark 10:29,30).
God sits on the circle of the earth and we are viewed by him as grasshoppers, he has always been and there is no way of searching out all his wisdom. “Have ye not known? have ye not heard? hath it not been told you from the beginning? have ye not understood from the foundations of the earth? It is he that sitteth upon the circle of the earth, and the inhabitants thereof are as grasshoppers; that stretcheth out the heavens as a curtain, and spreadeth them out as a tent to dwell in: Hast thou not known? hast thou not heard, that the everlasting God, the Lord, the Creator of the ends of the earth, fainteth not, neither is weary? there is no searching of his understanding. He giveth power to the faint; and to them that have no might he increaseth strength”.
And we know that the Son of God is come, and hath given us an understanding, that we may know him that is true, and we are in him that is true, even in his Son Jesus Christ. This is the true God, and eternal life.(1 John 5:20)……………………………..
