“I am the Alpha and the Omega,” says the Lord God, “who is, and who was, and who is to come, the Almighty.” Revelation 1:8
Alpha, the first letter of the Greek alphabet, and omega, the last, are used to signify God’s authority over all creation and history. From the beginning to the end, first to last, he is the ruler of all – the One “who is, and who was, and who is to come” (Revelation 1:4). Everything that we know of, and all that we do not know, exist” from him and through him and to him” (Romans 11:36).
What are you most thankful for? Your children? Your spouse? Health? Home? Work? Friends? Ultimately, God created and controls all that you treasure, all that you are. Make a list of five to ten things for which you are most thankful. Then acknowledge to God that he is the source of each one. Tell him that you know he is in charge at this moment. That he always has been and that he always will be. He who started all things will finish his work – including his work in you (Philippians 1:6). If you feel spiritually stuck, remember that he who started that good work in your life is still at work in you and will finish what he started. Remember to give him glory for his mighty works that you are enjoying in your life today.
