2013-1209 - What Would Moses Say?
For a thousand years in your sight are like a day that has just gone by, or like a watch in the night. (Psalm 90:4 NIV)
There never has been a time when God did not exist. Before the Earth was formed, before mountains were created, and any human being, God existed. Everything derives from Him. Just one word from the Lord and man returns to dust. Imagine that power, that reverence we owe to Him. He knows everything about anything and everybody. There are no surprises for God.
He alone can turn people back into dust. Time does not hold the same value to God as it does to us. A thousand years to us represents an instant in His perception of time.
There has been enough bad around here, I pray the Lord will allow good times to fall on us. I want to appreciate the time we have been given. We live 70 years, maybe 80 and what do we get? Trouble. I may change my perspective tomorrow, but right now things are pretty gloomy. May God give us some good news and affirm the work we have to do for Him. May He teach us to live well and to be wise.
Lord, Use Moses sentiments to teach me how to spend my time on Earth. In Jesus name I pray, Amen.
