God has always been and will always be. He created what we know as “beginning” and He will create what know as “end.” Bookending these two distinct periods in history is eternity, and He is there too. Nothing is beyond His reach, nor does anything exceed His understanding. As a result history is not out of control. He created night and day, and He will do away them. He establishes rulers and deposed them. He knits together children and numbers their days before they are born. There is nothing outside of His grasp. No wonder He says that no one can take His children out of His hands. He alone gives permission for the world to spin and sets our lives in motion. He is the Alpha. He is the Omega. To trust any other would be not only fruitless but also ignorant.
