Today... 'The Eternal God' - Poem by Roy Allen

The great Eternal God is also the Almighty
and He rides all the clouds of heaven in majesty.
He is a mighty stronghold and shelter from all harm
and underneath us is placed His everlasting arm.

To the Only Wise God shall all glory be given
all the praises and the worship of those in heaven.
For He has made Himself known to us through Jesus Christ
and then outstretched His arms in loving sacrifice.

To the Only Wise God all glory and honour be
for He has destroyed and driven out our enemy.
No one can even compare to the Eternal God
and all people can call upon the name of the Lord.

Poet's Notes about The Poem

Genesis 21: 33-34
Abraham planted a tamarisk tree in Beersheba, and there he called upon the name of the LORD, the Eternal God. And Abraham stayed in the land of the Philistines for a long time.

Deuteronomy 33: 26-28
'There is no one like the God of Jeshurun,
who rides on the heavens to help you
and on the clouds in his majesty.
The eternal God is your refuge,
and underneath are the everlasting arms.
He will drive out your enemy before you,
saying, 'Destroy him! '

All quotations ©NIV

The Bible calls You by many names
each one giving a glimpse of Your glory.
Like a cut diamond radiating in the sun
with every facet depicting an aspect
of Your Divine Nature.
Today I have thought of You as
'The Eternal God'
