IMG_0825Psalm 89

The psalmist is absolutely sure of his theology. He knows that the greatness of God is beyond that of any other being.  He knows that God will do what is right, and that God’s moral integrity is matchless.  Yet the psalmist also knows that this just and righteous God has allowed his servant (Israel’s king) to suffer the consequences of his people’s unfaithfulness.  The king asks the LORD to deliver him and his people, and frantically reminds the LORD that, unlike him, they are mortal.  Their time is short; it is running out.  Their souls are heading for Sheol, and they can do nothing about it. 

LORD, we know who you are, and you know what we are.  We depend on you. Deliver us!
