Number Our Days
Psalms 90

– Moses wrote this prayer
– He’s comparing man’s frailty with God’s eternity
– God wants to be our retreat, our dwelling place, and our defender
– We run to our Creator
– God’s heart cry is for me to turn to Him and not to turn to the way of destruction

2 Peter 3:8 – God wants me to turn to Him, even if it’s one day and the next day I die because with God a day is like a thousand years and a thousand years is like a day.

Eph. 1:4 – We get defeated when we compare ourselves to others instead of how God sees us. God sees the whole picture of my life.

– Don’t get into the spirit of the flesh, no matter what, return good and love when given hatred and evil.
– Ask to see people and circumstances through God’s eyes instead of my own.

1 John 2:17 – God is with me through everything

Ps. 39:5 – My entire life fits in the palm of God’s hand.

James 4:14 – Life is short and not guaranteed

– This day, I’m going to do the right thing
– This day, I’m not going to give in to sin
