Psalm 45:6 “Your throne, O God, is forever and ever; a scepter of uprightness is the scepter of Your kingdom.”
Whenever I am teaching children and the word “forever” is in the verse I always ask them how long forever is. Of course, kids are blunt. They just say, “Pastor Carl, that’s a silly question. Forever is forever.” That kind of sums it up. Forever is forever. It’s a long time. In fact, it’s ALL time.
Think about that. Forever incorporates all time. Before time even existed, God was there. He has ALWAYS been there. There has never been a millisecond of existence without God. That is mind blowing. I can’t comprehend it. I don’t have to. I just believe it.
Ask your little Elrod or Gertrude how long forever is. You will get some great answers. Ask them how old they are. Ask them how old you are. Then ask them how old they think God is. That should bring some VERY interesting answers. But kids have a way of figuring this stuff out.
Children just believe. If the Bible says it’s true, they just believe it. If God says it, that settles it. It’s us, the adults, who complicate the issue. We want to figure out what the kids just accept. Hmmmm, we might could learn something from them.
Do you believe in forever? Do you trust the ageless, eternal God of the universe to guide you? If He can create all that is in an eternal realm, I think He can handle leading you. Will you let Him do that today?
