Psalm 90:2,4 New Living Translation
“Before the mountains were born, before you gave birth to the earth and the world, from beginning to end, you are God.”“For you, a thousand years are as a passing day, as brief as a few night hours.”
This Psalm is attributed to none other than the great Moses. It points to two very important characteristics of God: 1) that He is eternal, with no beginning or end; and 2) He is not under the constraints of time (or space for that matter). Sounds very similar to Peter’s statement in his second letter … “But you must not forget this one thing, dear friends: A day is like a thousand years to the Lord, and a thousand years is like a day.”(2 Peter 3:8) Being Jewish and brought up to follow the Ten Commandments, it is very likely that Peter was familiar with Moses Psalm.
Moses is reminding the Israelites (and us as well) that God knows exactly what time it is and even though there are times when our wait might seem unbearable, we will not perish. There are purposes we could never fathom as to why certain things take place or why there are such long delays. We can tend to be very ungracious when it comes to waiting; however, I can assure you that what we wait on God for is well worth the wait. Not seeing that only means we are not looking thru the eyes of faith.
When we believe God exists, a vast array of scriptural promises open up to us. Since He knows our comings and goings there’s nowhere we can go that He is not already there. In fact, those bought by the blood of Christ have God in the form of the Holy Spirit within them. Any concerns we may have are unwarranted because no matter what the situation, God is aware of it and is with us in it. Until next time, walk with the King and be a blessing.
