Every Friday I join a community of bloggers for Five Minute Friday. One word prompt, five minutes. Unedited. The prompt this week is … From.

As soon as I read the word prompt, they came to mind.

From the rising of the sun to its setting, The name of the Lord is to be praised.”
(Psalm 113:3, NASB)

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, NASB)

For from the rising of the sun even to its setting, My name will be great among the nations, and in every place incense is going to be offered to My name, and a grain offering that is pure; for My name will be great among the nations,” says the Lord of hosts. (Malachi 1:11, NASB)

Even from eternity I am He, And there is none who can deliver out of My hand; I act and who can reverse it?” (Isaiah 43:13, NASB)

These Scriptures remind us of who God is – eternal, everlasting, great, powerful, sovereign. And when we remember who He is, we remember to pray, to call on Him from wherever we find ourselves, for there is no place or situation that separates us from Him:

“From the end of the earth I call to You when my heart is faint; Lead me to the rock that is higher than I.” (Psalm 61:2, NASB)
