In these strange days of social distancing, sheltering at home, and seeking the Lord without the gathered assembly of God’s people, I have been led to meditate on the eternal perspective that Psalms 90–92 provide. These three psalms should be read together, and together they provide a ladder to climb out of current crisis to see a greater vision of life that extends beyond our current horizon and runs into eternity.
At a time like this, when all of life is shutting down and projecting fear, we need to see this vision of God and his greatness. For only a true vision of God on high can give us the strength to trust God and love neighbors and serve others, as we are being led to protect ourselves at all costs.
Here are three messages on these psalms. May they bolster your faith in the sovereign Lord during this time of global pandemic and panic.
Eternal Perspective in a Time of Isolation: A Meditation on Psalm 90
Five Keys to Security in an Insecure Age: A Meditation on Psalm 91
Two Ways to Flourish: A Meditation on Psalm 92
This week, you can also find a daily devotion from the elders of Occoquan Bible Church. These video devotions remember the events of Holy Week and prepare our hearts to remember the death of Christ and celebrate his triumphant resurrection. Give them a listen and be encouraged in the finished work of Christ.
Soli Deo Gloria, ds
