Moses

Moses isn’t generally known for writing a Psalm, but he did. Psalm 90 is a record of his praise to the Lord. Have you ever thought about the years he kept sheep for Jethro after leaving Egypt the first time, and what he may have learned from it? Here was a man who grew up in the lavish privilege and extravagance in the place of Pharaoh who suddenly found himself on the edge of civilization. And the new environment had only simple provisions, shepherd responsibilities, and a breeze for music…but that’s where he saw the fire and heard the voice of God. Consider this verse from his psalm:

“Before the mountains were born, before You gave birth to the earth and the world, from eternity to eternity, You are God.” – Psalm 90:2 HCSB

How many times while leading the Hebrews through the wilderness did Moses probably stand at the door of his tent, watch the sunset, and think back to those days keeping sheep. Sometimes we simply need to do that; go out on the back deck or take a walk and contemplate God’s rich goodness toward us. Near the end of his psalm are these words:

“And let the beauty of the Lord our God be upon us…” – Psalm 90:17a NKJV

Have you considered how His beauty is displayed through your life? The many ways He’s been faithful is a testament to His lavish goodness, “…may we rejoice and be glad all our days!” (v.14b)
