Psalm 90 1-6, 13-17 (4:07)

by Jason Silver (played 13 times)

 

From everlasting! That's such a long time.

Recently I've been confronted with the reality of death again... an acquaintance has passed away recently, a young person full of life and vitality and beauty, newly married, and yet overtaken by the monster we call cancer.

Whenever this kind of thing happens, I reflect on how short life really is. Whether you live 100 years or 1 year, in the span of eternity, in light of the millions of years humans have been here, in light of the eons before that this this earth spun in space, our lives are insignificant moments in time.

And yet, none of this changes the reality that God is God. God is "our dwelling place," our reality. We die, we fall to dust, others take our place, and as this Psalm says, God continues to be God!

In the middle of this Psalm, right after celebrating God's eternal nature, the writer asks God to release his people from torment and affliction, in compassion to satisfy us with his love so we can rejoice!

Can you identify? Do you ever feel insignificant? Are you despairing from the situation you find yourself in? Take heart. God is God! He will always be God, in his love, mercy, faithfulness, and truth.

Lyrics

From everlasting to everlasting you are God.
From everlasting to everlasting.
From everlasting to everlasting you are God.
From everlasting to everlasting.

Lord, you have been our dwelling-place
In all generations.
Before the mountains were brought forth,
Or you had formed the world,

From everlasting to everlasting you are God.
From everlasting to everlasting.

You turn us back to dust, and say,
‘Turn back, you mortals.’
For a thousand years in your sight
They are like yesterday

You sweep them off; they're like a dream,
Like grass in the morning;
In the morning the grass is renewed;
It withers in the night.

From everlasting to everlasting you are God.
From everlasting to everlasting.

Turn, O Lord, how long?
Have compassion on your servants.
Satisfy us Lord
In the morning, with your steadfast love
So that we, we may-
May rejoice and be glad always
Make us glad O Lord
For as many days as you've afflicted us

Let your work be seen
Show your work, Lord, to your servants
And your glorious
Glorious power to their children Lord.
Let the favour of
Of the Lord, our God be upon us
And prosper for us
And Lord, propser for us the work of our hands.

From everlasting to everlasting you are God.
From everlasting to everlasting.
From everlasting to everlasting you are God.
From everlasting to everlasting.
From everlasting to everlasting you are God.
From everlasting to everlasting.
From everlasting to everlasting you are God.
From everlasting to everlasting.
