Sunday’s Message: Give God His Credit

We pray and ask for mercy, grace, and our dreams to come true. However, when we get our blessings, we tend to forget that our blessings come from God. Whether you received this blessing in the time of your request or on God’s time, we must let others know that you are blessed by the grace of God.

Has anyone ever made it through a huge trial in their life, just missed an accident on the road that could’ve totaled your car or end your life, got a job you didn’t think you were qualified for, or your child did not end up in a situation that another person’s kid has to face? All of these “almost” is done by the grace of God, and because of this, you must let other’s know all this is done by the grace of God. Whenever someone asks you, “How did you get here?,” reply with the words, “Only by the grace of God!” If it wasn’t for him, I do not know where I would be!” He is owed all the praise, no matter how bad things look now. NOthing is done by you; all is done through him!

Psalm 90

A prayer of Moses the man of God.

Lord, you have been our dwelling place
    throughout all generations.
Before the mountains were born
    or you brought forth the whole world,
    from everlasting to everlasting you are God.

You turn people back to dust,
    saying, “Return to dust, you mortals.”
A thousand years in your sight
    are like a day that has just gone by,
    or like a watch in the night.
Yet you sweep people away in the sleep of death—
    they are like the new grass of the morning:
In the morning it springs up new,
    but by evening it is dry and withered.

We are consumed by your anger
    and terrified by your indignation.
You have set our iniquities before you,
    our secret sins in the light of your presence.
All our days pass away under your wrath;
    we finish our years with a moan.
10 Our days may come to seventy years,
    or eighty, if our strength endures;
yet the best of them are but trouble and sorrow,
    for they quickly pass, and we fly away.
11 If only we knew the power of your anger!
    Your wrath is as great as the fear that is your due.
12 Teach us to number our days,
    that we may gain a heart of wisdom.

13 Relent, 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[a] of the Lord our God rest on us;
    establish the work of our hands for us—
    yes, establish the work of our hands.
