“Yea, before the day was I am he . . .” Isaiah 43:13
There is a time and a place for all things, that is what they say. Some will argue their disbelief in God because they have trouble with not being able to pinpoint His beginning. This life, this walk of faith demands that we believe God for who He says He is: “I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the ending, saith the Lord, which is, and which was, and which is to come, the Almighty” (Revelation 1:8), meaning there was never a time God was not. He was before all and will continue to be, forever and ever. The psalmist celebrated this by saying, “Before the mountains were brought forth, or ever thou hadst formed the earth and the world, even from everlasting to everlasting, thou art God” (Psalm 90:2), a truth repeatedly recognized throughout Scripture (Job 36:23; Psalm 93:2; Isaiah 41:4).
The Bible begins with the very words, “In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth” (Genesis 1:1). God is responsible for all of the Creation events. He “laid the foundations of the earth” (Psalm 104:5). When “the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep” (Genesis 1:2a), God was already there moving: “And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters” (Genesis 1:2b). Before light (Genesis 1:3-4), and even before there was a day or a night (Genesis 1:5), there was God. He has always been and will always be.
“To whom then will ye liken me, or shall I be equal? saith the Holy One. Lift up your eyes on high, and behold who hath created these things” (Isaiah 40:25-26a). God is the Creator of all things. Knowing who laid the foundations. Knowing He who was before all things, solidifies our faith in the one and only true living God.
There is no one like our God. He testified of Himself before Moses and said, ““I AM THAT I AM,” (Exodus 3:14), meaning just that. He has always existed before anything else, and He has always been before even one day was ever noted in history. He is God all by Himself: “Thus saith the LORD the King of Israel, and his redeemer the LORD of hosts; I am the first, and I am the last; and beside me there is no God” (Isaiah 44:6).
God has no equal! There is nobody that can be measured up to Him! There is no comparison, no rival, no match, and no substitutes – none that can be even remotely like God! There is only one God, and from before the foundations of the earth, God has been, and He has been in control. All we need to do is simply put our trust in Him, believe in Him, wait on Him, and watch Him work: “Wait on the LORD: be of good courage, and he shall strengthen thine heart: wait, I say, on the LORD” (Psalm 27:14).
The eternal nature of God cannot be understood by pinpointing days, only by believing in faith: “Of old hast thou laid the foundation of the earth: and the heavens are the work of thy hands. They shall perish, but thou shalt endure: yea, all of them shall wax old like a garment; as a vesture shalt thou change them, and they shall be changed: But thou art the same, and thy years shall have no end” (Psalm 102:25-27).
