“Before the mountains were brought forth, or ever you had formed the earth and the world, even from everlasting to everlasting, thou art God.” Psalm 90:2
The history of the world has been the discord of the world. Amidst all the advancements to make life easier on a cursed planet has been the constant struggle for power. In every social setting, from family to nation, there is discord among people.
In Psalm 90, the author (Moses) depicts life as generations of people passing away like grass, “In the morning it flourishes, and grows up; in the evening it is cut down, and withers.” Life and death are in the hands of the Everlasting God who has pronounced judgment upon men for their rebellious sinful ways, which is clearly seen in the way we men treat one another.
To men a lifetime is long; however, to the Everlasting God it is but a moment, “For a thousand years in your sight are but as yesterday when it is past…” The power of God is depicted most clearly and repeatedly in the scriptures by His timelessness. God is the Great self-existent I AM, the Everlasting God who exists in eternity past and future, “…from everlasting to everlasting, thou art God.”
Men may choose to believe that the worlds created themselves from nothing, and that over the course of billions of years without any guiding intellect by random chance developed into complex molecular structures, however, men would do better to say to God, “…teach us to number our days, that we may apply our hearts unto wisdom.”
Men do not want to acknowledge God because they do not want to be held accountable to Him, but the Christian understands the true nature of the world, and so he can say with the Psalmist, “…You establish the work of our hands upon us; yea, the work of our hands You establish it.”
It is foolish to think anything we do could be established without the presence of the Everlasting God!
“Thy throne is established of old: thou art from everlasting. Psalm 93:2
