Life of Moses Lesson 22 Day 5

Psalm 90 Prayer of Moses

12.  a.  Moses’ emotions—

  • Awe of God as the creator
  • Fear of God
  • Love for God
  • Misery
  • Grief
  • Transient
  • Desire to see the glory of God
  • Desire for others to see the glory of God
  • Desire to see years of gladness
  • Desire to see success

b.  Attributes of God—

  • Creator—the beginning and the end of all things.
  • Giver of life
  • Timeless—exists outside of time
  • Emotional, but not in a foolish way
  • God’s anger—Thankfully, He now withholds judgment because of Jesus. 2 Corinthians 5:19
  • Faithful to His word
  • Loving
  • Wise

c.  Meditating on God’s attributes—

  • Helps me know Him
  • Helps me love Him
  • Helps me trust Him
  • Helps me follow Him
  • Causes me to seek His wisdom

d.  Right away, verse 1 in the New Living translation grabbed me.

  • While I was growing up, my family moved at least eight times. As an adult, I get restless within two years of moving into a new house. That tendency frustrates me, and no doubt, others.So now when people ask me where I’m from, I don’t have to pull out the list. Through all my years, God has been my home!
  • The idea that God doesn’t experience time the way we do is fascinating and difficult to comprehend.
  • And may the Lord our God show us his approval
        and make our efforts successful.
        Yes, make our efforts successful!
