The God of the Present

“Don’t you know that God is an eternal self-existent Being; that to say He loves now, is, in fact, to say He always did love, since with God there is no past, and can be no future. What we call past, present, and future, He wraps up in one eternal now. And if you say He loves you now, you say He loved you yesterday; He loved you in eternity past; and He will love you forever; for now with God is past, present, and future.”

—Charles Spurgeon (1834-1892)

  1. This is such an amazing and comforting thought, and sadly, it’s one I rarely meditate on! It’s too easy to frame God in what I know and lean on my understanding. How wonderful is His love, and how great and beyond my comprehension He is. Thanks so much for sharing this. It’s a truth I want my children to take much comfort in, and it’s just another example of my having SO much to learn.
