For our next Lord’s Day, March 19, we turn to one of my favorite verses in the Psalms and we will turn to my favorite English translation for our reading, the 1977 Edition of the NASB…
Psalm 90:2 (NASB77)
Before the mountains were born, or Thou didst give birth to the earth and the world, even from everlasting to everlasting, Thou art God.
This is the second verse in what is called the Song of Moses. Moses praises the Lord as our dwelling place for all generations and celebrates that God has always been and always will be. As he nears the end of his life, Moses is contemplating what Abraham learned in Genesis 21:33, that God is El Olam (the Eternal God).
Life is unsettled, transitory, and brief; it can seem like the world is falling apart and yet, in spite of all of this, we can take comfort in the fact that God is unmoved by the transitory nature of this world. In the words of the old hymn, there is no shadow of turning within Him. God is the same this morning as He was when Moses nursed in his mother’s arms and at the end of the age, God will be the same that He is today. No matter how difficult, how scary life may seem, God does not change and our eternity is secure in His immovability.
Let us pray
God, you are our immovable rock and there is nothing that ever shakes you. In those moments when the storms of life rage loudest, remind us of Who You are and that we are safe in you. In Christ’s Name and for His glory. Amen
