Before the mountains were born, before you gave birth to the earth and the world, from beginning to end, you are God. ~ Psalm 90:2 (NLT)
The English language is a bizarre thing. We have words that sound alike, or are even spelled the same, but mean something different. For example: “The red fox read a book about reading.” Of course, it also doesn’t help that new words are invented hourly for the English language, such as the word “fleek.” Here’s what it means: “Look good.” Here it is in a sentence: “My eyebrows are on fleek today.” Yup. We invented a word for that. Awesome, right?
Within this crazy language, a couple of letters moved around, repositioned, or added to a word change everything. For example, yesterday we talked about mortality. Today, we’re looking at immortality. That extra I and M in front definitely change things up. While humans are mortal, our God is immortal – as in He’ll never die. But, it goes deeper than that.
God’s immortality isn’t just the fact that He’ll never die – He isn’t a comic book superhero. It’s that He’s always existed. He’s always been around. He doesn’t have a beginning or end as we mortals do. That’s cool! But, what’s the big deal?
The fact that God has always existed means that there is nothing that He doesn’t know about. As humans, we gain wisdom as we age and experience things, learning from them. But, God, who is immortal, knows everything about everything. In fact, our verse today puts it like this, “Before the mountains were born, before you gave birth to the earth and the world, from beginning to end, you are God.” Let’s put this into perspective.
Our God existed before the world began. He has seen every world event, every human born, every human life, every human victory, and every human defeat. His wisdom is beyond anything we can comprehend. In addition, He came down to this planet and became human, so He also has complete wisdom on what it means to be one of us – even though He’s immortal.
Things brings me to the point: Do you think there is an issue that you’re facing which God doesn’t have wisdom on? The answer is a big, fat “NO!”
We have an all-loving, grace-giving, compassion showing God who wants to share His wisdom with you. Not a flawed mortal wisdom, but an immortal super-wisdom. Let Him.
