Declaring the end from the beginning, And from ancient times things which have not been done, Saying, ‘My purpose will be established, And I will accomplish all My good pleasure.
am the Alpha and the Omega, the first and the last, the beginning and the end.”
Starting, they say is magic, at the same time everything that has a beginning has an ending. God alone is the Almighty that knows the beginning and the end of anything, He alone knows the beginning from the end and the end from the beginning. 1Timothy 1:17, To the King of ages, immortal, invisible, the only God, be honor and glory forever and ever. Amen.
He is the I am that I am, creator of all things and time, that is why he is referred to as the ancient of days, the Alpha and Omega, the omniscient God, all knowing. Hebrews 4:13,
And there is no creature hidden from His sight, but all things are open and laid bare to the eyes of Him with whom we have to do.
Our bible text for this study reveals God the almighty one as the supreme being who sets in motion the end from the beginning, He is the one who rules in all the affairs of our lives. As mere mortals, we are fallible, uncertain, unpredictable and limited, but God alone remains sure, stable and constant in all his ways. Psalm 102:25-27, Of old you laid the foundation of the earth, and the heavens are the work of your hands. They will perish, but you will remain; they will all wear out like a garment. You will change them like a robe, and they will pass away, but you are the same, and your years have no end.
God is the old and new, He is yesterday, today, tomorrow and he is forever, he has the entire world in his hand and rules it as he wills, the b part of our text confirms this assertion “My purpose will be established, And I will accomplish all My good pleasure”.
As we cross over to another new year, we as the people and children of God must ponder a new on the subject, “The End And the Beginning” we must as a matter of great importance reexamine our understanding of life and the circle of life vis a vis our purpose and mandate in life in line with the incontrovertible role of God in the whole matter.
I do not know what you resolved to achieve at the beginning of this out going year, or how far you went trying to stay within the limits of that resolution, one thing I know for sure is that man proposes but God disposes. The bible say in John 3:27. John said and answered, a man can receive nothing except it is given. from heaven.
What better way is there to begin the new year than to anchor everything from the start to the one who knows it all, the one who was, is and will continue to be, the one to whom nothing shall be impossible, the all able and merciful God? Psalm 16:5-6, Lord, you alone are my portion and my cup; you make my lot secure. 6 The boundary lines have fallen for me in pleasant places; surely I have a delightful inheritance
As I conclude, remember that what ever you hand over to this dependable God is safe and secured, He the all faithful God will, and can never fail. He will not let you down, no matter what, not for anything. Deuteronomy 31:8, It is the Lord who goes before you. He will be with you; he will not leave you or forsake you. Do not fear or be dismayed.
Tomorrow is the first blank page of a 365-page book. Write a good one.”
FATHER, MY ALMIGHTY GOD, I COMMIT THE JOURNEY OF THIS NEW YEAR IN TO YOUR HAND, BE MY GUIDE AND GUARD, IN JESUS HOLY NAME I PRAY.
