Songs of Praise: Psalm 102

Let’s read Psalm 102 this Monday!
(Click on the link to read the Scripture.)

Of old you laid the foundation of the earth,
    and the heavens are the work of your hands.
 They will perish, but you will remain;
    they will all wear out like a garment.
You will change them like a robe, and they will pass away,
     but you are the same, and your years have no end.

Psalm 102:25-27
Yesterday was Sunday… the end of the weekend. Today, Monday… the beginning of a new week. We tend to mark our days with beginnings and endings. There are times we never want to come to an end, and times when we can’t wait to get things over with. We begin. We end. This is the way of life.
No so for the Lord Most High. Our psalm today reminds me, God laid the foundation of the earth and it will pass away. But God remains. He will never wear out, never pass away. God is the exact same today as He was when He breathed life into Adam’s still lungs. Year after year, day after day, He never changes. He. Has. No. End.
It’s a comforting thought as I watch the flooding leave victim after victim in its wake. Tears well hearing the stories of rising waters and rescues off rooftops. How powerful a storm must be to wipe out a community. And yet this too will come to an end. In a few years we’ll remember the devastation and marvel at the rebuilding.
This, my friends, is what gives us hope in the midst of trouble. We serve a God who never ends, never wavers… never changes. It will be a long, wet week. Let’s begin with hope. Let’s wear it like a garment and share it with those around us. 
 Let us hold fast the confession of our hope without wavering, for he who promised is faithful.
Hebrews 10:23

I praise You, Lord, as unchanging. The stable foundation of every one of my beginnings and ends.
