God’s unfailing love


Psalm 90:14

Satisfy us each morning with your unfailing love, so we may sing for joy to the end of our lives.

God never stops loving us! We are sure that each morning the day will dawn and we may be just as sure of God's love.

Many think Moses wrote this Psalm near the end of his life. Moses the man that lead the people for 40 long grueling years, a man that listened to the constant complaints, the unyielding demands and one time he did not demonstrate God's holiness to the people he would not enter the Promised land. Still Moses wasn't moaning – he knew he had been disobedient! He accepted and continued to guide the people with God's instructions.

Amazing isn't it? Not a grumble from Moses no instead it was words of reminders of Home is with God. A place that one can always go!

A reminder that God is the Creator of the earth and the world, from beginning to end, you are God!

A reminder that God never ever stops loving us, even when we fail Him and yes we fail Him all the time. He may discipline us – just like Moses not entering the new land, but the love doesn't stop. What a beautiful reminder that each morning we need to give praise and thanksgiving for God's unfailing love and yes definitely we may sing for joy…

Singing for joy,

Debbie

Debbie, I remember from yesterday's reading that God told Moses to write down the words of this song that was in today's reading. Deuteronomy 31:30 says that Moses recited the entire song publicly to the assembly of Israel.
He knew it by heart when he shared it with all of the people.

I imagine Moses being so heartbroken over his disobedience to God. God said that Moses and Aaron had betrayed Him with the Israelites at the water of Meribah. God felt betrayed. Perhaps Moses even thought that he deserved God's punishment.

Psalm 90 was such a beautiful prayer from Moses. Praying that I remember the unfailing love of the Father.
