I was praying early yesterday (Sunday) and my mind stopped on the last word of the Lord’s Prayer.  Next to last if you count amen.  Forever!  What a strange thought.  Something that doesn’t decay or decline.  Ever.  Untouched by time. The Ancient of Days.  A picture of God Himself and of His Kingdom.  A God as VAST in duration as in glory and size.  It convicted me of idolatry, ie. conceiving a God who is small enough to understand rather than stretching my mind to embrace “the God who is really there” in all His infinite mystery. It convicted me of fear, not trusting a God this grand.  O God of FOREVER make me a true servant of your eternal kingdom.  Make me embrace with my heart what I cannot imagine with my mind.  No end to your kingdom or power or glory.  The ONE unchanging reality.  You are forever.
