The Solidity of an Eternal God

by Richard Long,

  I’ve been meditating and taking great comfort from the eternality of our Creator God.  Perhaps it is because I am reflecting on the shortness of life and the fleetingness of our own attempts to make a difference in this world.  In the midst of the realization that we live for moments, comes the firm assurance that God our Father lives forever.  What he is doing lasts for all time.

Out of that springs a worship of Him who is the solid Rock.  The Eternal One.  Who accomplishes all that He sets out to do.  The words of the song by Lynn Shazio and Gary Sadler  come to my mind.

Be Unto Your Name


“We are a moment, You are forever

Lord of the ages, God before time

We are a vapour, You are eternal

Love everlasting, reigning on high


Holy, holy Lord God Almighty

Worthy is the Lamb who was slain

Highest praises, honour and glory

Be unto Your Name


We are the broken, You are the Healer

Jesus Redeemer, mighty to save

You are the Love Song we’ll sing forever

Bowing before You, blessing You name”


Here’s an amazing YouTube video/audio rendition performed by Robin Mark …
