JUST PERHAPS

morning

REFERENCE
Psalm 90:14 [ESV] Satisfy us in the morning with your steadfast love, that we may rejoice and be glad all our days.
Psalm 90:14 [Message]  Surprise us with love at daybreak; then we’ll skip and dance all the day long.
Psalm 90:14 [NLT] Satisfy us each morning with your unfailing love, so we may sing for joy to the end of our lives.
Psalm 90:14 [AMP] O satisfy us with Your mercy and loving-kindness in the morning [now, before we are older], that we may rejoice and be glad all our days.
Psalm 90:14 [CEV] When morning comes, let your love satisfy all our needs. Then we can celebrate and be glad for what time we have left.

EXPLORATION
Taken out of context this verse sounds like a drive-thru order. You wake up and go to God like you would McDonald’s, and you place a order for some sunshine and happiness. But taken in context this a a prayer, or perhaps a plead from Moses to God. Moses understands that late in life most of us seem to figure out that we need God, we better understand just how short life is and that to enjoy it to it’s fullest we are going to want to experience God more.

APPLICATION
Just a ponder, what if in Moses prayer; morning is a metaphor for the next generation. What if Moses is praying; Father, help the next generation get to you sooner. Help them trust you sooner than we did. Let them experience your mercy, your loving-kindness, let your love be “enough” for them.

PRAYER
Father,
May my children come to trust you completely, surrender to you fully, submit to you regularly because you have revealed to them your steadfast love, your unfailing love. May they spend more days praising you than paining you. And father, may their children “get it” even sooner than they did. Teach us all to celebrate and be glad for what time we have left.
