The Promise in God's Time
Lord, you have been our dwelling place in all generations. Before the mountains were brought forth, or ever you had formed the earth and the world, from everlasting to everlasting you are God. For a thousand years in your sight are but as yesterday when it is past, or as a watch in the night (Psalm 90:1-2, 4).
The words of Psalm 90 come to mind as the old year passes and the new year begins. The Lord is our dwelling place yesterday, today, and forever – in all generations. His love for us in Christ Jesus never passes away. His promises never change or waver – even when we feel we’ve had either a “good” or a “bad” year.
God’s love, joy, forgiveness, righteousness, peace, and hope for eternal life are ours through the merits of our Savior Jesus throughout our days and years to come. We pray with the Psalmist in Psalm 90:14, 17: Satisfy us in the morning with your steadfast love that we may rejoice and be glad all our days. Let the favor of the Lord our God be upon us.
Challenge: Pray the words of Psalm 90 as you begin or end a new day this week.
