The reading for today is Psalm 90: 1-8, KJV.
"Lord, thou hast been our dwellings place in all generations. Before the mountains were brought forth, or ever thou hadst formed the earth and the world, even from everlasting to everlasting, thou art God. Thou turnest man to destruction; and sayest, Return, ye children of mine. For a thousand years in thy sight are but a yesterday when it is past, and as a watch in the night. Thou carriest them away as a flood, they are as a sleep; in the morning they are like grass which growth up. In the morning it flourisheth, and groweth up; in the evening it is cut down, and withereth. For we are consumed by thine anger, and by thy wrath are we troubled. Thou hast set our iniquities before thee, our secret sin in the light of countenance."
This is a psalm of Moses, the man of God. The writer starts out showing us who God is and how he is in our lives. God has been here for all generations. Notice how he shows us that God formed the earth and the world. What is the difference? Well, in my opinion, the earth is what we live on. The world is what we make of it. God formed both. God is our world.
We are shown how God is when he calls his people back to him. we use the terms "peaks and valleys". Everyone human has those days. But do we call God for help or suffer on our own till God calls us back? If so, he knows our secrets. Remember, Jesus looking into the hearts of men and knew what they were about to do before it happened. Let that one sink in for a moment.
The psalmist writes about time, length of time, and God's time. A thousand years is but a yesterday to God. time is something that cannot be truly measured. Only God knows of the true time. Therefore, everything is in God's time.
Lord, lead us back to you in your time. Teach us patience. Lord, be merciful to us since your know all our sins.
