From Everlasting to Everlasting

Before the mountains were brought forth, or ever You had formed the earth and the world, from everlasting to everlasting you are God.” Psalm 90:2

“In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth.” “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was in the beginning with God.” Genesis 1:1; John 1:1-2

Being around mountains, beholding their splendor from the flats, climbing them on curvy cut-back roads, and hiking their slopes along winding, ascending paths all give sense of their greatness and just how long they must have been in place. There is something about their stately grandeur, their majesty in solid form with craggy peaks dusted with powdered sugar snow, that seems eternal, immovable, yet, they were made by the preexistent God! Eternal, from everlasting to everlasting, immeasurable God is He!

What difference does it make in my daily life that God is from eternity past to unending future? It means He knows all, and has been at work accomplishing all His good purposes from the beginning of time, way before He created me. It means He Whose Providence is perfect is not surprised by anything that befalls me, and He orders all things to their good end. It means that He is steadfast and His attributes are infinite. He does not change, and never fails. Because He so reigns, I live in glad freedom and security in the present, and with unshakeable hope for the future, which He has promised and holds in His mighty hands. (Psalm 139:16; Romans 8:28; Joshua 1:5; John 3:16)

God unchanging and everlasting, stay my eyes on the hills, on the heights that remind me You are sovereign, almighty, my foundation, help, and strength. Keep my going out and my coming in forever, that through endless days I may exalt Your name. (Psalm 121:1-2,8)
