Scripture Minute – Psalm 90:2

“Before the mountains were brought forth, or ever thou hadst formed the earth and the world, even from everlasting to everlasting, thou art God.” (Psalm 90:2)

This passage is a part of a prayer attributed to Moses, the great leader and prophet of ancient Israel. In this verse, Moses is expressing praise and acknowledgment of the eternal nature of Almighty God.

Moses speaks of the timeless and eternal nature of the Lord, stating that God has existed before the creation of the world and will continue to exist for all eternity. It reflects on the greatness and majesty of our God as the Eternal Being, unbounded by time and space.

Today we share that same song with Moses, when we proclaim that “Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today, yea and forever.” (Hebrews 13:8; cf. Malachi 3:6)
