A Psalm of Moses

August 11

Daily Bible Reading: Psalms 90 – 92

Verse of the Day: Psalm 90:12 – “So teach us to number our days, That we may get us a heart of wisdom.”

We enter the fourth division of the book of Psalms. This can correspond to the book of Numbers in the Pentateuch. These songs remind us of the wandering and leading of God in that book. We are reminded that the only way to find our way through the desert is by trusting the leading of God.

This song is attributed to Moses who wrote two other poems recorded in the Bible (Exodus 15; Deuteronomy 32). This verse we read today reminds us of the importance of today. It has never been lived before, and it will never be lived again. You may never be closer to a decision you need to make than today. Whatever it is you need to do – do it. Tomorrow will have its own concerns.

Prayer: So teach us to number our days Father. Help us to see the importance of taking action today. Amen.
