Psalms — Psalm 90 – You Are God!

Day 2697: A unique Psalm – a prayer of Moses!

Scripture: Lord, You have been our dwelling place in all generations. Before the mountains were born or You gave birth to the earth and the world, even from everlasting to everlasting, You are God.

For a thousand years in Your sight are like yesterday when it passes by, or as a watch in the night. As for the days of our life, they contain seventy years, or if due to strength, eighty years, yet their pride is but labor and sorrow; for soon it is gone and we fly away. 

Who understands the power of Your anger and Your fury, according to the fear that is due You. So teach us to number our days, that we may present to You a heart of wisdom. Do return, O Lord; how long will it be? Let the favor of the Lord our God be upon us; and confirm for us the work of our hands; yes, confirm the work of our hands.  Excerpts from Psalm 90

Thoughts/questions: The first section is impossible to comprehend, but if there is a God, capital G, the fact that God is from everlasting to everlasting has to be a given! Far too great for my little brain, but a given as after all, You are God!

And time to a capital G God also is much different than time to His creation. God’s view of life is also so incomprehensible that 1,000 years passes by Him as a mere day – amazing. Yet we continue to think our possibly 80 years is so important even in light of eternity.

So we surely need to number our days, for when we do, that number is, in reality, a very small one. There is SO much more, and it DOES get far better than this!

Suggested prayer: Almighty God, I must continually acknowledge that You are God and I am not . . .
