FROM EVERLASTING TO EVERLASTING

Human beings come and go, but God is eternal. How that knowledge does steady us as we live our short little minute of life. No wonder we find such comfort and solace as we contemplate our Father in heaven. Everything else is temporary. There is no guaranteed permanence in anything here. The beautiful butterfly may live a few weeks, and we may live a hundred years, but all is temporary. That’s what emphatically separates us from the Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

The truth of this is perfectly illustrated by the references made to potter/clay analogies in Scripture.

Isaiah 29:16 says, “Surely you have things turned around. Shall the potter be counted as the clay, for shall the thing made say of Him who made it, ‘He did not make me’? Or shall the thing formed say of Him who formed it, ‘He has no understanding?’”
Isaiah 45:9: “Woe to him who strives with his Maker! Or shall the clay say to Him who forms it, ‘What are you making?’”

Scripture also points out that sometimes the clay mars in the Potter’s hand and has to be discarded. This is a not-so-subtle hint that we are wise to be moldable in the Potter’s hands. We also rashly question the Hammer that hits the anvil. The lesson is clear. We are being shaped for eternity.

God was, is and ever shall be. He was before the earth was formed, at its creation and will be until earth is no more. We, on the other hand, were born in Time, live and die in Time, but we will wake up in Eternity. We need to keep this in perspective. It makes life much easier to make a decision to live for Him in our short span, and with Him for eternity. Because our God is from everlasting to everlasting.
