“The Word of our God shall stand forever” Isaiah 40:8

Meditations in the Psalms

July 27th

Psalm 90:1-6

What beautiful words! Praise to the God Who is always there – “from everlasting to everlasting, Thou art God (v. 2).” The psalmist sees the eternal nature of God clearly, and knows that a “thousand years” are but a “yesterday” to God. He illustrates the brevity of our lives by the grass which grows in the morning, but is cut down at night. I Peter 1:24-25 speaks of the same thing, and says that “the word of the Lord abideth forever.”

  1. The place of God’s dwelling – verse 1
  2. The permanence of our God – verse 2
  3. The plea of God for us to repent – verse 3
  4. The past as compared with the present – verses 4-6

It is easy for us to lose perspective, especially as it relates to eternity. We are creatures of time, and the span of our lives is what we understand and to which we relate. God is not subject to time which He created for our benefit and the accomplishment of His plan. It is for us to leave our “times” in His hand!

Verse for Meditation

Verse 2 – “Before the mountains were brought forth, or ever Thou hadst formed the earth and the world, even from everlasting to everlasting, Thou art God.”

Meditation Prayer

“Thank You, Lord, for reminding me of your eternal nature and plan.”
