“Lord, you have been our dwelling place in all generations” (Psalm 90:1, ESV). Psalm 90 offers a plea for God’s forbearance that stresses human finitude and God’s marvelous transcendence. Yet, as this first verse shows, our frailty may not be a discouragement if it moves us to rely upon God. Our finitude should drive us to place our lives and hope in His infinite strength.
God is strong, a refuge and deliverer for all who come to Him. Let your struggles and burdens drive you to utter reliance on Him who is able to save. Rest your heart in the Lord, the safety and security of His people.
