How or what brought God into existence?

If you say God has always existed, then what was he doing for billions of years before the universe was created? What has he being doing for the 6 billion years since big bang and humans first existing?

    God has always been around. There literally is no “beginning” or birth of God. God has always been around, has always existed. God *just is*. 

    How is it this way? It’s a mystery but at least God existing for always means He is forever there to protect, guide and nurture us, His children.

    Roberta B, why do you continue to quote the bible for some kind of evidence?  To do so, you are accepting the stories written by men, yet you think the stories speak for your god. ! LOL!   @Phil, the believers really hate questions such as you asked.  They don't have an answer for your question and become angry when we do not accept the nonsense they try to pass off as an answer.  @Ernest S, so where is your evidence for that claim you stated? The bible is not evidence.

    Man, while still ignorant could not understand much more than hot, cold, hungry and pain made up the idea of a belief that became known as superstition, from which the idea to write stories to be used to fool the weaker minds and control them originated..

    Time is different for God for he lives in the present. He is the first and the last. Think outside the box. We live within time he does not.

    Jehovah God was never created.  He is the Creator, and an ultimate Creator is uncreated - otherwise, the one who created Him would be the Creator.

    Before He created the universe, He lived everlastingly "From everlasting to everlasting you are God." Psalms 90:2

    Unlike us, God is not affected by time.  In this universe that He created, things are affected by time. Even if a star came into existence, and existed for a billion years, eventually it will come to an end.  Scientists have seen births of stars and deaths of stars. But a billion years is a very long, but finite amount of time, and it ends.  Yet, with all of the trillions of stars, He knows "each of the stars by name." Isaiah 40:25-26. So creating and caring for his creations would be one of things that he has been doing.

    Each of us is unique, even identical multiple siblings. He created us to be unique.  Similarly, the singularly unique thing about God is He does not have a beginning or a finite existence- this is what makes Him the source of life and light. Psalm 36:9

    Even if we, through faith and obedience in His means for salvation from death, Jesus (whose name means "Jehovah is Salvation",  our faith and love for Him will keep us living forever. There will be a time when "death will be no more."  Revelation 21:4

    Everything that exists must have been created.  That's religious logic at its finest.

    God was created by Meta-god.

    God was created infinitely long ago, but Meta-god existed for an eternity prior to that.

    Meta-god spoke God into existence --- that's how these things are usually done.

    (You're not allowed to ask how Meta-god came into existence --- such thoughts are blasphemous.  You're only allowed to worship one level up.  So it all makes perfect sense...)

    Time is a characteristic of the physical universe. Time didn't exist until God created it, along with energy, matter and space. God exists outside of time. The universe, and time, will eventually cease to exist, but God is eternal.

    Before the Big Bang, time was running backwards and the Universe was contracting to a single point. God is the author of time.  You don't ask Tolkien whereabouts in Middle Earth he lived.

    God is eternal.  That means he wasn't created.

    God was not created.  He has always existed and always will.

    Time began when God created the universe.  There is no concept of "before" the universe was created.  God is infinite, we cannot even grasp something that was "before" time began, as there was no "before".
