"I have been established from everlasting, from the beginning, before there was ever an earth. ... Before the mountains were settled, before the hills, I was brought forth." Proverbs 8:23, 25
Do you ever wonder what kept God busy before he created the earth? It may seem like a silly question, especially because we, as mortals, have a hard time comprehending eternity. But God was there, full of this wisdom that Proverbs speaks of, long before He ever formed the earth.
Earth's time span is probably just a blip in the spectrum of eternity. Every aspect was forethought, and everything that is to come is pre-planned. So the concept of "always was and always will be" is a little hard for my brain to comprehend.
I love the imagery in this book of Proverbs, as it describes that wisdom has been with God throughout eternity. "When He prepared the heavens, I was there" "when He established the clouds above" "Then I was beside Him" "For whoever finds me finds life."
