.... to SCRIPTURES FOR EVERYDAY...This blog is really nothing more than a collection of scriptures that for one reason or another have spoken to my heart. The little explanation that follows each scripture is just that. "My" explanation and insight into what I feel the Lord is impressing upon me. I don't pretend to be any real scholar when it comes to the Bible and don't know if I am always necessarily completely accurate in my understandings. I am just a woman, a wife, a mother, and a grandmother, who loves the Lord with all of my heart, and without Whom I am really nothing at all. If anything I have written here helps or blesses you in any way at all, then I am happy to share. PLEASE feel free to leave your comments, insights, or feelings on here, and may we all grow closer to Him everyday....

Welcome to Spiritual Sunday hosted by Charlotte and Ginger. If you would like to visit other inspirational blogs, please click here


"I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End," says the Lord, "who is and who was and who is to come, the Almighty."

Alpha is the first letter of the Greek alphabet, and Omega is the last...so we "could" say Jesus is the A to Z...He is the Beginning and the End....If Jesus is both the first and the last and the beginning and the end, then it would have to mean He also has authority over everything in-between...This would mean that Jesus does have a plan for all of history, and He directs the path of human events toward His designed fulfillment. Our lives are not given over to blind fate, to random meaninglessness, or to endless cycles with no resolution..Jesus Christ directs all of human history, and so therefore even our individual lives...

Who is, Who was, and who is to come.... Hebrews 13:8 expresses it this way: Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever.

The word Almighty translated from the original Greek literally means, "the one who has His hand on everything." It means that Jesus has complete sovereign control over everything, past, present, and future....

I don't know about any of you, but I find GREAT comfort in all of this...that Jesus Christ truly controls all of history, long before I could have even been a thought, to my present life and circumstances right now, to everything that will EVER come...that EVERYTHING lies in His very capable hands and He directs the course of all things....And since we know how everything comes out in the end, we never have anything to fear....I LOVE this verse!!

  11. Yes , it is a powerful comfort. We were just talking about this today in our Sunday School class where we are studying Jeremiah!

  12. I agree with you. When I get despondent over what is going on in our country and the world, I remind myself that it will all turn out in the end the way God wants it to. It is a great comfort. Thank you for this timely post.

  13. Debbie,
    This is a wonderful scripture and I really like your thoughts on it. Thanks for your nice comment on my S.S. blog!


  14. I delight in those verses too, and Rev 22:13 says it as well, "I am the Alpha and the Omega, the First and the Last, the Beginning and the End." What a comforting thought indeed, that all things are in Jesus almighty hands.
