“Forever” - Psalms 23:6

Forever. That is the last word in the 23rd Psalm. Forever is a very long time.

Most of us can’t imagine what forever is like. In fact, if we really think about it, that statement doesn’t make any sense. Forever is NOT a very long time. Forever is not any time at all. It’s the exact opposite. Forever is the absence of time. Descriptions like "very long" make no sense when talking about forever.

In  Revelation 4, we are given a little glimpse of what eternity will be like. There, we see the throne room of God and the scene is described this way:

Revelation 4:8
“And the four living creatures, each one of them having six wings, are full of eyes around and within; and day and night they do not cease to say, ‘Holy, holy, holy is the Lord God, the Almighty, who was and who is and who is to come.’”

These creatures “do not cease” to sing to God. Their song never ends and it never changes. These creatures will do this same thing forever and ever. They will sing the same song in front of the same throne with the same co-workers every single moment of every single day, forever and ever. And they will never get tired of it and it will never grow old.

Why doesn’t it get old? Because this is what they were created to do. Think about it. They are fulfilled beings who are doing exactly what they are supposed to do. They are complete and whole and content. They don’t want to do anything else because they are living lives that are fulfilling, meaningful and relevant.

Isn’t that what you want? Isn’t that your goal? Those creatures are happy and content and will always be so because they are at peace with God, the Giver of Peace.

Do you want to live a happy and fulfilling life full of meaning and peace? That happens when we are doing what God designed us to do. We are worshipers. That is what eternity holds for us. Give glory to God and be happy. That’s the way you are made to work.

Ephesians 2:10
“For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand so that we would walk in them.”
