“I know that whatever God does,
It shall be forever.
Nothing can be added to it,
And nothing taken from it.
God does [it],
that men should fear before Him.” (Ecclesiastes 3:14 NKJV)
Family, spouses, parents, children, friends, loved ones, colleagues, pastors, church family, national, state, and local leaders, even our favorites sports teams, disappoint. Conditions are put on love and acceptance. Hopes are crushed. Words spoken are not kept. Expectations are not met. Nothing seems to last forever. However, everything that God does IS forever. Whatever He does is eternal, complete, and secure. The LORD does forever so that we will be amazed by Him. Who else can do forever?
