Read : Psalms 90:1-12
1 LORD, thou hast been our dwelling place in all generations.
2 Before the mountains were brought forth, or ever thou hadst
formed the earth and the world, even from everlasting to
everlasting, thou art God.
3 Thou turnest man to destruction; and sayest, Return, ye
children of men.
4 For a thousand years in thy sight are but as yesterday when it
is past, and as a watch in the night.
5 Thou carriest them away as with a flood; they are as a sleep:
in the morning they are like grass which groweth up.
6 In the morning it flourisheth, and groweth up; in the evening it
is cut down, and withereth.
7 For we are consumed by thine anger, and by thy wrath are we
8 Thou hast set our iniquities before thee, our secret sins in the
light of thy countenance.
9 For all our days are passed away in thy wrath: we spend our
years as a tale that is told.
10 The days of our years are threescore years and ten; and if by
reason of strength they be fourscore years, yet is their strength
labour and sorrow; for it is soon cut off, and we fly away.
11 Who knoweth the power of thine anger? even according to
thy fear, so is thy wrath.
12 So teach us to number our days, that we may apply our
hearts unto wisdom.

The theme of Psalm 90 focuses on making the most of the short
lifespan that we have as mortal human beings. The passage
speaks of death as returning to dust, and discusses the total
lifespan of man as being transitory, like an ordinary grass of the
field. It also describes what humans proudly refers to as
glorious years as a short lifespan spend serious labour and
great sorrow. Therefore, Psalm 90 discusses the concept of
human life with such an unpleasant and derogatory language
that it calls to mind the need to find a way of making the best
out of life. The situation is made worse by the complimentary
witness of other Bible passages such as Ecclesiastes 1:2:
Vanity of vanities, saith the Preacher, vanity of vanities; all is
Job 14:1-2 that’s says :
MAN that is born of a woman is of few days, and full of
trouble.He cometh forth like a flower, and is cut down: he fleeth
also as a shadow, and continueth not.
Furthermore, the experiences of life tallies with the Word of God
in the most perfect sense, as revealed in the biblical testimonies
of people such as Moses, Abraham, Jacob, Joseph, Esther,
Ruth,David, Solomon, Elijah, John the Baptist, and the Apostles.
The Stories of the life of these people of God are full of hard
labour, uncertainty, disappointment, betrayal,
persecution,failure, and death. Though there people were mostly
prophets and anointed kings, yet their stories show that they
ended well only by divine intervention. Bible scholars generally
identified Moses as the author of Psalm 90. The counsel of this
great prophet who succeeded in life despite having his own fair
of troubles and tribulations should therefore be taken seriously.
Psalms 90:12 says :
So teach us to number our days, that we may apply our hearts
unto wisdom.
True wisdom comes from God alone and it is quite different
from worldly wisdom that is based on human cleverness,
insight, and intuition without Gods revelation which brings little
profit. This passage speakers of the ability to make the most of
our time in this world, despite the brevity of life. To do this
require a new understanding of the Meaning of life. To number
our days is to value the time we have by using it for eternal
purposes. Focusing on eternity which then produces a heart of
wisdom, enables a child of God to live in line with the word of
Godly wisdom is made available by digging deep into the Word
of God. It is received through total submission to the will of
God, impacted to Christians by Gods Holy Spirit, and graciously
given in response to the fervent prayers of the saints of God. As
you begin to dip deeper into the Word of God in total submission
to His will in prayers, He will pour down His heavenly wisdom
upon your life in Jesus name.
Prayer Point :
Father, please fill me with the wisdom to excel in life and
ministry in Jesus name.
