14 Satisfy us in the morning with your steadfast love, that we may rejoice and be glad all our days.
15 Make us glad for as many days as you have afflicted us, and for as many years as we have seen evil.
Reading Psalm 90 this morning I could not help but think how opposite verse 14 and 15 seem to me. My sinful self finds it easy to praise God when things are going good, but I’m not so fervent or quick in my praise when things are hard. Makes me even more thankful that His love for us is not based upon my fair-weather devotion, and that instead His love is based upon the finished work of Christ. A prayer I need daily:
17 Now therefore, O our God, listen to the prayer of your servant and to his pleas for mercy, and for your own sake, O Lord, make your face to shine upon your sanctuary, which is desolate.
18 O my God, incline your ear and hear. Open your eyes and see our desolations, and the city that is called by your name. For we do not present our pleas before you because of our righteousness, but because of your great mercy.
19 O Lord, hear; O Lord, forgive. O Lord, pay attention and act. Delay not, for your own sake, O my God, because your city and your people are called by your name.”
