Hebrews 1:10-12 and Longs Peak, Seen from a Mountainside. Rocky Mountain National Park, Colorado.
“In the beginning, Lord, you laid the foundations of the earth, and the heavens are the work of your hands. They will perish, but you remain; they will all wear out like a garment. You will roll them up like a robe; like a garment they will be changed.” Hebrews 1:10-12 (NIV)
Everlasting and Self-Existent
Hebrews 1:10-12 speaks of God as being everlasting. It reveals that in the beginning God created everything and that He is not part of creation. It tells us God exists independent of all creation.
God does not need the help of creation to exist. Every living plant and animal relies on God and other things in creation for their existence. God alone is self-existent and eternal.
God not needing any help from anything or anyone means, “He’s got this.” Nothing happens in our lives that God can’t control. He not only holds the entire universe in His hands, but our lives as well.

Job 38:22 and a Snow Covered Road and Trees, Bellevue, Nebraska.
“Have you entered the storehouses of the snow, Or have you seen the storehouses of the hail?” Job 38:22
God Holds the Storehouses of Snow
Job is one the Bible’s five books of poetry. It uses the word snow more than any other book in the Bible. Snow possesses a poetic beauty to it that helps portray the majesty and purity of God, but snow also reveals the power of God.
Throughout human history and until this days, a heavy snowfall shuts down the plans of man. But to God, snow is another wonder of His creation and an instrument under His control. God holds the snow in His hands and He blows it where He pleases.
Job 38:22 is just one Bible verse of many in Job 38 that talk about the greatness of God.
