Moses’ psalm is one of the oldest living songs on this planet. It has been sung and read now for 3,500 years! There is much in this psalm that will strengthen your faith and walk with the Lord.
“A Prayer of Moses, the man of God.”
It is a wonderful thing to suddenly come across this Psalm, written hundreds of years before King David, a song from Moses!
But who was Moses?
He was a man of God. He was called a friend of God.
But too, he was kept out of the promised land because he disobeyed God’s order in his own anger at the people of Israel (for their stubborn rebellion and bad behaviour).
Kept out until Jesus (see Jesus meeting with Moses and Elijah at the transfiguration! Read Matthew 17, Mark 9, Luke 9).
“For we are brought to an end …”
“You have set our iniquities before you, …”
“Our secret sins in the light …”
“So teach us to number our days that we may get a heart of wisdom.”
WE. OUR. US.
Moses does not hold bitterness in his heart.
Moses knows that he was not somehow better than the rest of God’s people.
Moses knows that he was not better than anyone else period.
He prays as one of the people of God.
This is a good encouragement for us to do the same.
* Great God Above,
Please forgive us for our sin today.
Please teach us to number our days that we might get a heart of Your wisdom, that our hearts might be after Your own heart.
Please show us Jesus today.
