What Does Psalm 90:2 Mean?

Before the mountains were born, before You gave birth to the earth and the world, from eternity to eternity, You are God.

Psalm 90:2(HCSB)

Verse of the Day

The book of Genesis tells us about the beginning of creation, but before time and space and matter were brought into being, before the universe came into existence and before man was made in His image and likeness - there was only God.

God is and has always been and will be forever and ever, and the Psalmist seeks to place this concept that is inconceivable to the mind of man into perspective, with the words: "From everlasting to everlasting You are God. for before the mountains were born, the earth the birthed and the world was created, from beginning to end, you are God." From eternity past to eternity future You are the Lord.

God is eternal. He is the first and the last, and He is without beginning or ending. He is the genesis of all that is and He is the revelation of all that ever will be. He is sufficient in Himself and needs neither man nor angels to find completeness. He existed in sublime glory and exists in great majesty. In Himself, He is self-sufficient, self-sustaining, and entirely complete.

And yet, for the love of you and the love of me, Jesus stepped out of eternity in order to be born as a baby and to die on the Cross as the Saviour of mankind. Hallelujah! What a Saviour!

It was Frederick Faber who wrote of our limitless, omniscient, glorious, triune God:

Timeless; spaceless;
single lonely
Yet sublimely Three,
Thou are grandly;
always; only
God in unity.

My Prayer

Heavenly Father, my mind cannot comprehend the wonders of Who You are, but I praise Your wonderful name that You have disclosed Yourself to me in Your Word. Help me to know You more, to love You better, and to follow You more nearly with every passing day. In Jesus' name, AMEN.
