How Old Is God?

The heavens declare the glory of God; the skies proclaim the work of his hands. Psalm 19:1

Maybe you think that because God created the world, He must be at least two million years old! Wrong! God is eternal. There never has been a time that He has not existed. There will never be a time when He will stop existing.

Think of a circle. You cannot tell where the circle begins and ends. It is one continuous ring. A circle can remind you that God is eternal. The Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit always have existed and always will. We have a hard time imagining that.

The Bible says " . . . from everlasting to everlasting you are God" (Psalm 90:2). How long is that? It is forever. If you have believed in Jesus as your Savior, God has given you eternal life. Will it ever end? No! You are God's child forever! God wants to guide your life. Because He is eternal–He always has been and always will be–He can see what has happened, what is happening and what will happen. What a guide to have! How great God is!

Will you trust your Heavenly Father who is eternal? You cannot see what will happen in the future, but God sees and wants to direct your life.
