Lord, you have been our dwelling place in all generations. Before the mountains were brought forth, or ever you had formed the earth and the world, from everlasting to everlasting you are God. You return man to dust and say, “Return, O children of man!”
For a thousand years in your sight are but as yesterday when it is past, or as a watch in the night.
You sweep them away as with a flood; they are like a dream, like grass that is renewed in the morning: in the morning it flourishes and is renewed; in the evening it fades and withers. (Psalm 90:1-6)
Psalm 90 is one of the oldest psalms penned by Moses when the children of Israel turned away from Canaan (The Promised Land), heading back to the wilderness they had just left (Numbers chapters 13-14). The land was as God had promised (perfect), flowing with milk and honey. One concern the people of Israel had was that giants populated the land, and before they could take this land over, they would have to conquer the giants. The people of Israel lacked the confidence they could accomplish that by themselves, not realizing God was on their side.
Friends, have you ever been faced with conquering your giants (past events or present struggles) in your life? In the next couple of days of “Thought Posts,” we will look at how the people of Israel dealt with their struggles. Until then, would you pray with me?
Heavenly Father, I praise and glorify You, my God. I thank You for the promises and hope in Your Word. Thank You for Your commitment to walk daily with me. Lord, I thank You that You will guide and teach me as I let Your Word and Truth turn my heart from sin and renew my mind in goodness and truthfulness. It is in Your Precious Name, I ask, Amen.
God Bless and have a Blessed Day, Friends <><
