Alpha and Omega

December 30

Daily Bible Reading: Revelation 21

Verse of the Day: Revelation 21:6 – “And he said unto me, They are come to pass. I am the Alpha and the Omega, the beginning and the end. I will give unto him that is athirst of the fountain of the water of life freely.”

Alpha and Omega are the first and last letters of the Greek alphabet. It is an idiom that encompasses the whole. It is like our saying from A to Z, or from the start to the finish, or the whole 9 yards, or the whole enchilada, or… well, I am sure you get the picture.

It stresses God’s fullness, completeness, comprehensiveness, and his all-inclusiveness. He has always existed and will always exist. He is Omnipotent, Omniscient, Omnipresent. He is the source of all things and will see all things to their completion. God was in the beginning of our year, and is in the end of our year.

Prayer: Almighty Alpha and Omega, I can rest in assurance of all of Your promises. Your promises are backed by all of You. You never change. You have been and will be. I can hold on to every word that this Bible speaks, You say what You mean and mean what You say.
