Tag Archives: Alpha and Omega

“’I am the Alpha and the Omega,’ says the Lord God, ‘who is, and who was, and who is to come, the Almighty.’”  (Revelation 1:8, NIV)

To know God is to know that our past, present, and future are all securely in His care.

Our God is the beginning.  There was nothing — and no one — preceding Him.

Our God is the end. . . without end.  No one — and no thing — follows Him.

Therefore, we need not continue to lament the things of the past for which we’ve repented.  What may be losses to us have the potential for redemption when abandoned to the eternal plan of God.  – Luther

“The Lord makes firm the steps of the one who delights in Him; though he may stumble, he will not fall, for the Lord upholds him with His hand.”   (Psalm 37:23-24, NIV)

God is the Alpha and the Omega.

When God becomes the Alpha and the Omega (the first and last) in our personal lives, He becomes our delight; and every decision we make is made with the firm confidence that He will be our lifeguard.

There are many opportunities for us to become “tripped-up”: Some come as a result of our ignorance; some come as a result of the evil designs of others; some come as a result of our lot as humans; some come through our own disobedience.

In each circumstance, though we have stumbled badly — and are flailing-about to regain our equilibrium — the Lord’s hand arrests our fall.  The Lord’s hand re-establishes balance.

Walk closely with the Lord. Hold firmly to His hand.  Delight yourself in Him.  – Luther
