Daily Readings – Perspectives!

Day 1826: Have a Super Blessed Sunday!!!

Scripture: You turn humanity back into dust, saying, “Return, you children of Adam!” A thousand years in your eyes are merely a day gone by.      Teach us to count our days aright, that we may gain wisdom of heart. Psalm 90:3, 4a, 12

Thoughts/questions: 2 sections in this Psalm. (v.3, 4a) – I don’t know why this finally hit me, but God created our body from dust, and then turns us back to dust! A proof of creation? Probably not, but an interesting consistency! 1,000 years:1 day, so our lives are a little over 2 hours to God.

My wife and I were just reading about the slayings of Christ followers. This brings me some hope, as we were kind of frustrated with what God allows to continue. To God, a life cut in half would now be a bit over 1 hour instead of 2 – that number is far more palatable!

(v.12) – Time is different to God, but He doesn’t want us to disregard it – as we are to count our days. When we know that the counting of our days will eventually end, the wisdom gained is to value each day!

Suggested prayer: Lord God, help me to rest in Your plan . . .

  1. God does not wear a watch…sometimes I wish He did…would make me think He is watching things a bit better….even though He Is is complete control and I do trust Him…but it is hard sometimes..
