BIBLE TEXT: Revelation 1:8: “I am the Alpha and the Omega,” says the Lord, “Who is, and was, and is to come, the Almighty.”
PERSONAL REFLECTION: Have you ever struggled daily with something that seemed like there was never going to be an end in sight? Have you ever wondered where the Lord was in the midst of your situation? Well, I have been pounding on heaven’s doors with some very real prayer requests. So often I seem to forget whom I am praying to. During church last Sunday the Lord gave me a word that spoke directly to my heart about who exactly He is.
He said, “I am the same God who laid the foundation of the earth. I am the same God who carved the mountains out of the sea. Nothing is impossible for me. I am the Alpha and the Omega. Everything that is was because of me, so there is nothing I can’t do. I tell you these things so you will never doubt. Your circumstance is not beyond my control, so, never doubt my ability to overcome your situation. I am God! It is not enough to believe in me, you must believe me!”
PERSONAL APPLICATION: Sometimes we need a reminder from God that He is so much bigger than what we are going through. He is also a loving Father that wants to meet all of our needs. Remind yourself of whom God is. Don’t just believe in Him…. we must also believe Him.
PRAYER: Thank you Lord for your gentle reminder of who you are and what you are able to do in our lives. May we never forget that nothing is impossible for you. May we never look to our circumstances but rather remember how good and loving you are. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
