Moses, the man of God, penned the magnificent words of Psalm 90 probably during the wilderness wanderings. This psalm—the oldest in the Psalter—unmistakably sets up a contrast between the everlasting nature of God and the temporal nature of man. Moses shows how sinners reap what they sow and how every single sin (iniquity and secret sins) are laid bare before the eyes of God.

Last night when I preached Psalm 90 I provided some applications to the doctrine of God's eternality so that the people would know how this doctrine should affect the way they live.

Psalm 90:2 — from everlasting to everlasting, You are God.
Psalm 90:2
וּֽמֵעֹולָ֥ם עַד־עֹ֝ולָ֗ם אַתָּ֥ה אֵֽל׃
Here are those applications.

1. Because God is eternal and everlasting we must remember that nothing is too big for Him; no problem is too great for him.

2. Be humble before God who created everything—time, space, matter, and everything that lives!

3. Let our knowledge of God’s eternity take off our love and confidence from this WORLD and it’s STUFF and fasten it on the eternal glory of GOD and His eternal satisfactions and delights!

4. Remember that heaven is a place where we will live forever (time will be there! Rev 22:2, 5).

5. God is unchanging and therefore dependable—he is the same now as he has always been in the past (Heb 13:8 – same yesterday, today, and forever).

6. In heaven, the enjoyment of God will be as fresh and glorious after many millions of ages than it was in the very first hour!

Isaiah 40:28 28 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
הֲלֹ֨וא יָדַ֜עְתָּ אִם־לֹ֣א שָׁמַ֗עְתָּ אֱלֹהֵ֨י עֹולָ֤ם׀ יְהוָה֙ בֹּורֵא֙ קְצֹ֣ות הָאָ֔רֶץ לֹ֥א יִיעַ֖ף וְלֹ֣א יִיגָ֑ע אֵ֥ין חֵ֖קֶר לִתְבוּנָתֹֽו׃
