Each Friday my writing stems from a word prompt. Five minutes, one word prompt. The prompt this week is … Last.

“Who has done this and carried it through, calling forth the generations from the beginning? I, the Lord – with the first of them and with the last – I am he.”
(Isaiah 40:4, NIV)

We need this reminder now and then.

God asks this question, not because He does not know who He is; but so that in answering the question, we ourselves remember who He is.

He is the One responsible for the very first generation for He created both Adam and Eve. He is the One who has brought every generation since and directed the paths of each one.

Here He reminds us that He alone has been the one directing all events and He alone is sovereign over history.

But the question also tells us He has been guiding our destinies from the beginning of time. Our days unfold according to His plan.

This verse should bring assurance that God is with us always. He has gone on before us, and is always working on our behalf.

“I, the Lord –
with the first of them
with the last –
I am he.”
