Before the Mountains Were
Guest Post by Markos Kidane: Psalm 90:2 and the Mountains of South Gondar, Ethiopia.
“Before the mountains were born or You gave birth to the earth and the world, even from everlasting to everlasting, You are God.” Psalm 90:2
“When we consider the grandeur and majesty of the mountains, we can see how small and frail we are in comparison.
It seems that these giants have been around since the beginning of creation, but our Heavenly Father who created them, was there before them, and is infinitely bigger that them. Although He created everything seen and unseen, big and small, He cares about every detail of our lives.” Markos Kidane
See all of Psalm 90.

I love the comparison of us to the mountains. We are so very small compared to them but we are more important than they are. God created them first and humans on the last day, but we are the most important creation to Him. For me, He represents that mountain and we are like ants when looking down from the peak, if we can be seen at all. We cannot see what is at the top of the mountain, just like we can’t see God because of where He is. Yet, I feel special and I am special compared to that mountain. Thanks for sharing this with me.
Hi Kathryn. Thank you for those wonderful thoughts! I love your analogy of the ants and the mountain. God is so much greater than us!
