I am the Alpha and the Omega, the First and the Last, the Beginning and the End. –Revelation 22:13 (NIV)

Sometimes I need this reminder. Actually, I need this reminder a lot.

God is the Alpha and the Omega. He is the First and the Last. He is the Beginning and the End.

The world seems like it is crashing down in chaos all around us. Things are happening that we cannot control. Sometimes my very life feels too heavy to handle and I get depressed thinking of all things that keep getting in my way.

Then I remember this verse. Christ is before everything, even all creation. He will exist always. He will never lose control over the universe. He, alone, conquered DEATH.
He is the eternal One.

This comforts me and humbles me. I am in awe that God, the God who is in everything, wants me, loves me, cares for me, and protects me…and you.

In one short sentence, Revelation sums up the power of our King. In one sentence, Revelation wipes the doubts, the fears, and the questions out of our minds. Because our Christ Jesus is at the Beginning and End of everything. No matter what Satan tries to use against us in this life, God will be there for us.

Soak this verse in today.

I am the Alpha and the Omega, the First and the Last, the Beginning and the end. 
–Revelation 22:13 (NIV)

Repeat it over and over again and go about your week being the kind of person who knows Who's really in charge.

Her first love is her Lord and Savior. She has given Him her every move and waits on Him daily to whisper into her heart (even though sometimes it sounds more like a roar). Christians second love is coffee, preferably in a cozy café with towers of Bible commentaries spread out on the top of the table.
