Before the mountains were born or You gave birth to the earth and the world, even from everlasting to everlasting, You are God. Psalm 90:2.
Do you not know? Have you not heard? The Everlasting God, the Lord, the Creator of the ends of the earth does not become weary or tired. His understanding is inscrutable. Isaiah 40:28.
Abraham planted a tamarisk tree at Beersheba, and there he called on the name of the LORD, the Everlasting God. Genesis 21:33.
The eternal God is a dwelling place, and underneath are the everlasting arms; and He drove out the enemy from before you. Deuteronomy 33:27.
Today your LORD (יהוה) God says:
Everything began in Me and continues in Me. And yet I have no beginning and I have no end. I AM YHWH. The One who is, who was and who is to come. El Shaddai. El Elyon. The God of time and eternity. I made all and sustain all, am in all, and draw all to Me. I know all. The universe cannot contain Me, I am everywhere at the same time, and yet I have My eyes constantly on YOU and have every hair of your head counted. You are the apple of My eye.
I know all things and I love all things. I loathe nothing that I have made. My lovingkindness is everlasting. Psalm 136:2, 26. From everlasting to everlasting I am God. Psalm 90:2.
I am beyond the deepest depths and greatest heights. I am a mystery yet I am clear. I am Light and I am Love. I am pure and yet I made My Son who knew no sin to be sin for you so that you might become righteous with My own righteousness in Him. I am great beyond all greatness, vaster than the sea and higher than the sky, and yet I take up My abode in you. The Kingdom of Heaven is within you. And the Kingdom is infinite. My plans for you outnumber the grains of sand of the sea and the stars of the heavens. Why? Because they cover all eternity, and it never ends.
I am far but I am near. When you seek Me with your heart, you find Me right there with you. I never slumber or sleep. I am your Keeper. Behind you and before you I hem you in, encompass you with love and songs of deliverance. I am your shield and your buckler. I am everywhere yet I am there with you and you have My complete attention, down to the number of hairs of your head and every cell in your body.
David knew Me, and he sang: “I will lift up my eyes to the mountains; from where shall my help come? My help comes from the LORD (YHWH), who made heaven and earth. He will not allow your foot to slip; He who keeps you will not slumber. Behold, He who keeps Israel will neither slumber nor sleep. The LORD is your keeper; the LORD is your shade on your right hand. The sun will not smite you by day, nor the moon by night. The LORD will protect you from all evil; He will keep your soul. The LORD will guard your going out and your coming in from this time forth and forever.” Psalm 121.
So many today do not look out into the vastness of the stars of night, like I took Abraham out to enlarge his view into who I was, or lift up their eyes to the mountain heights, as David did, and know My love and care towers above that and that I will make your feet as hind’s feet upon the heights. I run a Kingdom that is beyond all you can ask or imagine; it has not even entered your mind what I have prepared for those who love Me. And yet I share it with you by My Spirit. I want you to begin to enlarge what you are looking at. I had to take Abraham out onto the mountains and tell him to lift up his eyes to see the vastness of My plans for his life. I had to take Elijah to Mt. Horeb and make him stand on the heights to get out of his discouragement and defeated attitude. And I took Peter, James, and John onto a high mountain and let them see the glory in My Son and the shining amazing cloud of My presence from whence proceeded Elijah and Moses from eternity to be present to them in time.
David looked at the things I had made and wondered and pondered and broke out in song: “When I see Your heavens, the work of Your fingers, the moon and the stars, which You have ordained; what is man that You take thought of him, and the son of man that You care for him? Yet You have made him a little lower than God, and You crowned him with glory and majesty! You make him to rule over the works of Your hands; You have put all things under his feet, all sheep and oxen, and also the beasts of the field, the birds of the heavens and the fish of the sea, whatever passes through the paths of the seas. O LORD, our Lord, how majestic is Your name in all the earth!” Psalm 8:3-9.
I planned you and saw you before you were even formed in your mother’s womb, I have searched you and known you, better than you know yourself. I know when you sit down and when you rise up; I often awaken you in the morning. I understand your thoughts from afar. I scrutinize your path and your lying down, and I am intimately acquainted with all your ways. I know your heart’s desires even better than you do, and I am always working to satisfy them. Even before there is a word on your tongue, behold, I know it all. That is why Jesus told you that thoughts are so important. I have enclosed you behind and before, in perfect protection, and laid My hand upon you. Such knowledge is too wonderful for you to comprehend, larger than you imagined. It is too high, you cannot attain to it except by the revelation given by My Holy Spirit in you.
I am everywhere. My presence envelops all. Where can you go from My Spirit? Or where can you flee from My presence? And in My presence there is fullness of joy. Joy unspeakable and full of glory. Joy that never ends but flows from within Me to within you, leaping like a fountain, pouring down like perfumed oil. My love is better than the finest wine.
If you ascend to heaven, I am there. If you make your bed in Sheol, behold, I am there. If you take the wings of the dawn, if you dwell in the remotest part of the sea, even there My hand will lead you and My right hand will lay hold of you.
I formed your inward parts; I wove you in your mother’s womb. You are unique, there is no one else like you or will there ever be or was there. You are fearfully and wonderfully made. All My works are Wonderful! Beautiful in their time. I saw you as an embryo and in My Book all the days of your life were written when as yet there was not one of them. My plans and dreams about you are vast, if you could count them, they would outnumber the sand. When you awake, you are with Me.
You cannot begin to understand all that I am and all that I have prepared for you. If you but get a glimmer your life becomes amazing and you stand in awe of so great and wondrous a love as I have for you. A love that is more than a feeling or a devotion, but a love that is a Person, warm and vibrant, majestic and splendid, glorious, whose light fills the universe and whose power is beyond the greatest power and force you have ever felt or heard of in the physical world. I am beyond all you can know or experience with your five senses and yet I draw you so close to Me we become one in My Son.
Know that I am YOUR God from everlasting to everlasting. All I have is yours and it is beyond all you can ask, think, or imagine. And My Spirit, My power—the power that made everything and sustains everything and renews everything and holds it eternally alive—is in you and I have given it to you along with My Son and My Kingdom and Myself. I am your God.
I love you. I have loved you with an everlasting love. My love for you has been forever. I have no beginning and I have no end– forever I AM. Hold fast to Me for I am holding fast to you. I am your everlasting rock. I am beyond all that is for I am the author of all, but I make Myself accessible to you at every moment forever. I will never ever leave you or forsake you. All you have to do is turn your eyes on Me and never look away.
The LORD appeared to him from afar, saying, “I have loved you with an everlasting love; Therefore I have drawn you with lovingkindness.” Jeremiah 31:3.
