Discussion for Psalms 90

  • A disciple
    Moses asked the LORD if he could see His glory. David panted and thirsted for the Living God, longing for the day he could come and appear before God. Paul felt that as long as he is here; though it would be a good thing for the building up and confirming of the Saints; he was "away from home" being still here on earth. These things are Spirit inspired understanding of the eternal and the true.
  • A disciple
    "For all our days are passed away in thy wrath: we spend our years as a tale that is told." Moses lived to be 120 years old. Abraham lived to 175. Some from the world of the beginning lived over 900 years. But while many stumble at the idea that God is able to let a man live for so long; what about all the long years of trouble and sorrow, toil and sweat, as it were banished far away from God?

    Verse 10: This shows how precious life is because we only have a few years on this earth. We should try to make the most of each day and live a life full of devotion and service to Jehovah God.
  • Faith kyeveo
    am just getting the challenge right,,,that i should cherish every day that God gives to me because it could be the last...its never a guarantee that i will be alive tomorrow
  • A disciple
    "..we spend our years as a tale..So teach us to number our days, that we may apply our hearts unto wisdom." The one thing that we all seem to most readily slip away from, when studying the things of the Lord, is the fact of our present existence; as if reality was only true in our minds by faith. This prayer of Moses is very deep, and worth much time to understand; esp. as it goes before Psalm 91.

    AMEN , to the guy who understands that genesis 6:3 tell us how long we can live, if we start treating our body's as a temple
