Unchanging Ultimate Good

Unchanging Ultimate Good

“… you, Lord, remain the same, and your years will never end” (Ps. 102:27). Yes, Lord God, in contrast to the temporariness of all in time, you, who are outside of time, are permanent, eternal, unending, unchanging, uncurtailed in your existence.

As you were before time began, so you will be after time ends: the perfect and pure paragon of all that is positive. In you there is no alteration, no shifting, no deterioration, no development, no growth, no vacillation–for you are already perfect.

We rejoice in your eternalness, in your enduring through all generations, in your permanency. You are the only stable, unchanging, certain thing in all of creation, in all of time, in all of existence. And you have made yourself our Rock, our Fortress, our Defender.

We glorify you, we rejoice in you, we exalt you, we lift you up. Our eyes are on you as we turn away from the things of this world to be enthralled with your dazzling beauty. It is true, as Asaph wrote in Psalm 73, that when we gaze upon you in worship, we must say, “Whom have I in heaven but you, and earth has nothing I desire besides you.” As we worship you, learn of you, are drawn to you, what we have and don’t have matters less and less, for you are our all in all. Glory be to your name.


Prayer: “Lord God, great Creator and Sustainer, help me today to live in your light, to value and obey your Word, to live for eternity. May your Spirit guide me in making wise and glory-giving decisions. May you be exalted in my life today! Amen.”
