throughout all generations.
Before the mountains were born
or you brought forth the whole world,
from everlasting to everlasting you are God. Psalm 90:1&2
As a family we started the New Year reading and reflecting on Psalm 90.
In brief, it reminds us of the character of God and of our own condition. These truths, without intervention are incompatible. God’s holiness and our brokenness don’t match.
Then the Psalmist (Moses) calls for God’s compassion. We know that compassion came in the person of Christ. And the Psalmist adds, in that love “establish” the work of our hands. In other words, give our lives direction and meaning, purpose and vision.
In a confused and lost world, may our lives have direction and meaning in 2012 so that as the hands and feet of Christ our presence may make an eternal difference to people around us.
I especially liked your last sentence!
