God: Timeless as Well as Great

"1In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth. " (Genesis 1: 1)

In the first verse of the Bible, God is presented as "Elohim", or the "God of gods" as well as "These are God", speaking of the Trinity-relationship of Father, Son, and Holy Spirit:

Yet to Moses, God endorsed Himself by a different name:

"And God said unto Moses, I AM THAT I AM: and he said, Thus shalt thou say unto the children of Israel, I AM hath sent me unto you." (Exodus 3: 14)

Jesus Christ insisted on His deity when he told the Pharisees:

"58Jesus said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Before Abraham was, I am." (John 8: 58)

Paul wrote to the Hebrews:

"8Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and to day, and for ever." (Hebrews 13: 8)

Do you see God as merely great? Or do you see Him as timeless, too?

Do you see Him as the same, the one whom you can rest in right now, because you know and believe that He has everything taken care of?

Or do you seem Him as merely great, yet unable to take care of your tomorrows?

The more that you see Jesus, who is from the beginning (John 1: 1; 1 John 2: 12-14), the more that you will understand His great power and majesty in all things.
