From Everlasting to Everlasting, You Are God

Psalms 90:2

Before the mountains were born
or you brought forth the whole world,
from everlasting to everlasting you are God.

Psalm 90:2 NIV

This psalm is subtitled as a prayer of Moses. In it, he expressed the eternality of God. Forever is a hard concept to grasp. I remember, as a young man, trying to understand how big the universe was. And I found myself constructing a brick wall that encompassed the whole thing. I could not conceive of the universe stretching out forever.

And I have the same problem with time. As a creature living in time, time impacts nearly everything I do. Minutes, hours, days, weeks, years, and decades all define my existence. When I turn to the creation around me that timeframe is measured in much larger increments. Thousands, millions, and billions of years. I honestly have no real grasp of just how long a billion years is. It’s just too big.

And yet, before the mountains I love sprang up, God was. Before this earth cooled and began to take shape, God was. Before the universe itself began, God was. And long after the mountains, the earth, and this universe come to an end, God still will be.

Moses said, “From everlasting to everlasting, you are God.” When time began, he was God. When time comes to an end, he will still be God. Unchanging in nature. Unchanging in purpose. Eternal.

That is the God who made us. Who provided redemption for us. And who has called us into an eternal relationship with himself. How great is our God!
