Always and forever

“Before the mountains were born
or you brought forth the earth and the world,
from everlasting to everlasting you are God.”
(Psalm 90:2)

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. The emptiness calls out. Only God can find it – heal it – fill it.

God. Always and only – God. He calls us to come home to Him even as He comes to make His home with us.

“If anyone loves me, he will obey my teaching. My Father will love him, and we will come to him and make our home with him” (John 14:23)

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.
