Every Day

O LORD, are you not from everlasting? My God, my Holy One, we will not die. O LORD, you have appointed them to execute judgment; O Rock, you have ordained them to punish. Your eyes are too pure to look on evil; you cannot tolerate wrong. Why then do you tolerate the treacherous? Why are you silent while the wicked swallow up those more righteous than themselves? Habakkuk 1:12-13

God's seen and heard it all. That's perhaps the understatement of the year. He was from the Beginning and He'll be in the End. Infinite. Everlasting. Unending. Without respect for days or people or institutions. They will come and go but God will remain.

He formed the mountains and the valleys and all creatures living in them. He holds the oceans in the palm of his hand. The stars are like grains of sand and he created them too. He knows exactly what microbes and microscopic germs are inside your body. Of course we know that He did all of that.

This snapshot in history called "now" will go away. Tomorrow will come and go. God remains. Nations will rise and fall. God remains. If we end up destroying the planet through war or disease, God will remain.

Every day we're alive, we have an opportunity to praise this God.
