Watch for God | Psalm 90:13-17

Today's Passage: Psalm 90:13-17
Key Verses: Psalm 90:16-17

May your deeds be shown to your servants, your splendor to their children. May the favor of the Lord our God rest on us; establish the work of our hands for us—yes, establish the work of our hands.

All of us need renewed confirmation. We long to experience God's work . . . again and again. Once is never enough. God's activity in us and around us produces spiritual focus. It allows us to explain the splendor of God to our children. We need to see God at work today . . . and again tomorrow.

Moses was a man who saw God at work. The burning bush, the plagues, the Red Sea, manna from heaven, the Ten Commandments—Moses saw God up close and personal. However, his experiences also taught him how quickly we forget. As he closed this psalm he asked God to continue to show his deeds. God's work would be a review for some and needed first-time learning for their children.

God is at work all around us. He is at work in the nations around the world and in the lives of the people in our world. We need to slow down and watch for him. When we take the time to see his work, we can point it out to our children. We can help them become people who watch for God. That renewed confirmation allows us to be confident in all we do as we establish the work of our hands.

Father, may your deeds be shown to us. May our children marvel at your splendor. May your favor rest on us. Please establish the work of our hands. In Jesus' name. Amen.
