“Before the mountains were born or you brought forth the earth and the world, from everlasting to everlasting you are God.”
In the eternity before time as we know it began – there was God. In the eternity after time as we know it has ceased – there will be God. In the time in between – there is God. Always and ever there is, has been and will be God.
It is God’s will and power that created. It is God’s will and power that sustains. It is God’s will and power that redeems. It will be God’s will and power that resurrects. Always it is God.
There is no other God. There never has been. There never will be. God laughs at man’s efforts to create one or to be one. The first have no life in them. The second cannot keep themselves alive. Man may decide that there is no God – but still there is God and always will be.
We cannot find God. He reveals Himself. We were created in His image. Sin has separated and distorted us. There is an unquenchable longing within us. We know it but cannot identify it. It is Godless. Only God can find it – heal it – fill it.
God. Always and only – God.
God calls. Listen.
Father God, always You call me to You. Help me to come – and to keep coming – and to know You (more) as Father. Amen.
