“Let the favor of the Lord our God be upon us, and establish the work of our hands upon us; yes, establish the work of our hands!” Psalm 90:17
As Chapter 90 opens, this song or prayer of Moses begins with the unspoken Hebrew name for GOD, YWHW! Moses begins here by acknowledging the existence of GOD. And not just the existence of GOD but Moses proclaims the eternality of the Creator God, the All-Sufficient ONE, the All-Knowing ONE. From this posture, Moses then explains the power of GOD, the Holiness of GOD, the Wrath of GOD, the Radiance of GOD, and the Unrelenting Favor of GOD on His people.
Remember, the Holy Scriptures are the Inspired, Inerrant, and Infallible word of GOD and here we see a testimony, evidence that the terrifying, Holy ONE is approachable. And, in Moses fashion, he asks GOD to empower, bless and provide for the Vision that God gave to him. See, YHWH had already chosen the Who, What, Where, When, Way, and Will/Purpose! Moses, like us, just needs reminders that YHWH is on the move and He favors us along the way.
Speaking of FAVOR, I cannot begin to you how amazing it is to realize that the Favor of GOD has gone before, protected your sides, and hemmed you in the back. The prep time before the Ukraine trip, the arrival to Ukraine, and the time in Ukraine can only be described by… HIS FAVOR!
To really understand what I mean watch this short video.
Love you. May the GOD of Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, David, and You richly bless you and cause His Favor to shine upon, in, and through you!
