Meditations in the Psalms

July 29th

Psalm 90:13-17

The Lord is in control of our days, and our need is to trust Him and to rejoice in Him all our days. This beautiful conclusion to Psalm 90 calls for the “beauty of the LORD our God” to come upon us, and for the work of our hands to be established by God. There is an old song that says: “May the mind of Christ my Savior, grow in me from day to day; By His love and pow’r controlling – all I do and say. May His beauty rest upon me as I seek the lost to win; and may they forget the channel, seeing only Him.”

  1. The request for the Lord to return to them – verse 13
  2. The rejoicing we should experience – verse 14
  3. The realization of how God will use our afflictions – verse 15
  4. The remembrance of what God has done – verse 16
  5. The reflection of the Lord’s beauty in our lives – verse 17

God wants to use us more than we want to be used! He wants to shine His beauty through all we say and do (Matthew 5:16).
