“Throw Yourself Upon the Lord God”
 
This might seem to be an odd thought.
Why would we want to throw ourselves upon anyone, let alone the Lord God?
 
To me, this thought means we realize we are in big trouble on our own.
Therefore, we throw our lives onto the mercy and grace of our living Lord God.
 
Please read the following verses to see and learn more about the Lord God.
 
Psalms 90
A prayer of Moses the man of God.
 
1 Lord, you have been our dwelling place
throughout all generations.
2 Before the mountains were born
or you brought forth the earth and the world,
from everlasting to everlasting you are God.
 
3 You turn men back to dust,
saying, “Return to dust, O sons of men.”
4 For a thousand years in your sight
are like a day that has just gone by,
or like a watch in the night.
 
5 You sweep men away in the sleep of death;
they are like the new grass of the morning —
6 though in the morning it springs up new,
by evening it is dry and withered.
 
7 We are consumed by your anger
and terrified by your indignation.
8 You have set our iniquities before you,
our secret sins in the light of your presence.
 
9 All our days pass away under your wrath;
we finish our years with a moan.
10 The length of our days is seventy years —
or eighty, if we have the strength;
yet their span is but trouble and sorrow,
for they quickly pass, and we fly away.
 
11 Who knows the power of your anger?
For your wrath is as great as the fear that is due you.
12 Teach us to number our days aright,
that we may gain a heart of wisdom.
 
13 Relent, O Lord! How long will it be?
Have compassion on your servants.
14 Satisfy us in the morning with your unfailing love,
that we may sing for joy and be glad all our days.
15 Make us glad for as many days as you have afflicted us,
for as many years as we have seen trouble.
 
16 May your deeds be shown to your servants,
your splendor to their children.
17 May the favor of the Lord our God rest upon
us;
establish the work of our hands for us —
yes, establish the work of our hands.
 
Please reread verse 17, then say Amen (May it be so)
 
I will sing of the mercies of the Lord forever,
I will sing,
I will sing;
I will sing of the mercies of the Lord forever,
I will sing of the mercies of the Lord.
