Remember Billy Graham (1918-2018) in His Most Inspiring Quotes

Joy of My Heart with Anne Graham Lotz - January 1

Our Eternal God

In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.

Genesis 1:1, nkjv

The glorious dawn of God’s story begins with the stunning yet profoundly simple statement that in the beginning He created everything (Gen. 1:1)—which means that in the beginning, He was already there. He is eternal.

It is impossible to comprehend eternity. It’s been defined as three stages of time: everything before Creation, everything that has taken place or will take place from Creation until the end of the world, and everything that will take place after the end of the world. It stretches back further than the human mind can reach—whether through anthropology, or geology, or archaeology.

It stretches ahead further than the human mind can imagine—whether through science fiction, or scientific observation, or telescopes.

God as Creator is eternal and therefore not bound by time. That means He is in your future, and He is in your past, and He surrounds you at present! Would you worship Him now for His eternity?
