PSALM 90

1 Outline

 

Psalm 90:10, 12, 14

"ABOUT TIME" OR "ON TIME" NEW YEAR

 

There is at least one thing you and I have in common. God has given us each the same amount of time each day! We each have 24 hours. Each hour has 60 minutes. Each minute has 60 seconds.

One of the hardest things we need to do each day is to use God's gift of time wisely! Moses makes some interesting observations in Vss. 10, 12 and 14 of Psalm 90. He speaks about time.

 

RECOGNIZING THE TIME - Vs. 10

According to the Bible, the average life span is 70 years. Sometimes, especially in America today, a person may even receive a few more years. Nevertheless, no matter how long we live it is not long at all, and our time will be up.

 

REDEEMING THE TIME - Vs. 12

Moses recognized the need for proper use of time. Our time should be spent acknowledging the brevity of time and the need to use our time wisely. The most important thing we can do with our time is please God. See Ephesians 5:15-17.

 

REJOICING THROUGH TIME - Vs. 14

The sooner we find the mercy of God in Christ, and are satisfied with that mercy all our days, the happier we will be! The word mercy here refers to God's love! Let us always remember that nothing can separate us from that love! Romans 8:35-39.
