“Before the mountains were brought forth,
Or ever You had formed the earth and the world,
Even from everlasting to everlasting, You are God.”
“For a thousand years in Your sight
Are like yesterday when it is past,
And like a watch in the night.” (Psalm 90:2, 4, NKJV)
God alone is permanent and enduring, and therefore the only true security is found in him. Human life, by contrast, is short and uncertain, and is brought to an end as God decides and when he chooses. No matter how long a person lives, even a thousand years, the number of years is insignificant compared with the timelessness (Psalm 90:1-6)
Psalm 90:2 and remind us that first, there is one eternal and unchanging God; second, the brevity of human life.
