Psalm 90

[1] Lord, you have been our dwelling place
in all generations.
[2] Before the mountains were brought forth,
or ever you had formed the earth and the world,
from everlasting to everlasting you are God.

Psalm 90:1-2 (ESV)

The final stop on our Summer Vacation sermon series took us to the new heaven and the new earth that was revealed to John and then to us in Revelation 21-22, where a loud voice on the throne said, “Behold, the dwelling place of God is with man.” That is the description of a place Jesus is preparing for those who believe in Him, a place where we will one day dwell with Him. It’s a place where we will experience without interruption and without any stain of sin what we are able to experience today through prayer. It will be different then, when we stand before Jesus face to face for all of eternity, but God will not be different.

Though we do not see Him physically before us, God welcomes us to pray to him as Moses does in Psalm 90. He is our dwelling place, a safe place, a refuge–in all times. At their longest, our lives are short, so may we learn to pray as Moses did–that our days would be spent wisely, enjoying the God who invites to dwell with Him.

[12] So teach us to number our days
that we may get a heart of wisdom.
[13] Return, O LORD! How long?
Have pity on your servants!
[14] Satisfy us in the morning with your steadfast love,
that we may rejoice and be glad all our days.
[15] Make us glad for as many days as you have afflicted us,
and for as many years as we have seen evil.
[16] Let your work be shown to your servants,
and your glorious power to their children.
[17] Let the favor of the Lord our God be upon us,
and establish the work of our hands upon us;
yes, establish the work of our hands!

Psalm 90:12-17 (ESV)
