Focus Verses For Today: Psalm 39:4-5

Our journey today takes us through Psalms 39-41. Our journey finds David speaking to the Lord about forgiveness for the sins he had committed. David addresses times when the Lord is quiet and the discomfort it brings him, and much, much more.

Take a few minutes and ask the Lord to reveal his true meaning of Psalms 39-41 to you. Read Psalms 39-41, listening for the Lord to share with you. Let’s journey!

PsalmsPsalms 39-41: Our reading today emphasizes David’s reliance, his dependence, on the Lord throughout his life. As you read today’s reading, it became obvious that David, although a king, was concerned about his relationship with the King of Kings: the God of Israel. From David’s writings, it is obvious that David knew that worldly riches would not last and the only thing of eternal value was the time spent serving or developing a relationship with God. (Psalms 39:1-41:13)

Our focus verses for today:

4“Show me, Lord, my life’s end
    and the number of my days;
    let me know how fleeting my life is.
5You have made my days a mere handbreadth;
    the span of my years is as nothing before you.
Everyone is but a breath,
    even those who seem secure.
(Psalm 39:4-5, NIV)

The focus verses show that King David understood that his days of earthly life are short, and actually inquires of the Lord the number of days he, King David, has. Time is an important element of life. Is what you do with that time is most important of all? As you read through the Psalms, you notice that, according to David, time spent to secure wealth was wasted since only earthly life is temporal. David recognized that time spent developing a relationship with and serving God has everlasting, immeasurable value. What are you pursuing?
