Psalm 90 is a psalm (a prayer, actually) of Moses.

Traveling through the wilderness with the Israelites, Moses declares in verse one:

Lord, You have been our dwelling place from generation to generation.

Psalm 90:1

For a people who had God’s dwelling place (the Tabernacle) with them, I find this a surprising statement. Moses says that Yahweh Himself is their dwelling place, not the Tabernacle.

My favorite statement comes near the end of the psalm. Moses prays:

O satisfy us in the morning with Your lovingkindness, that we may sing for joy and be glad all our days.

Psalm 90:14

In a world full of dissatisfaction and unsatisfying pleasures, Moses asks God to satisfy His people with lovingkindness (Hebrew: “hesed”).

The term “satisfy” gives the idea to be filled, quenched, and delighted. In short, Moses wants to be completely full and consumed with the mercy and lovingkindness of Yahweh.

What about you?

Ultimately, Moses’ request was fulfilled in Jesus—who is the personification of lovingkindness. Jesus and the cross is the fruition of God’s mercy (hesed).

Jesus offers to satisfy our hearts and lives with His pure and overflowing love.

The question before us is will you allow Him to satisfy your every craving, desire, passion, body drive, dream, want, and need?

What would your life look like if Jesus was the fullness of your satisfaction? He wants to be.

In Psalm 90, Moses goes on to declare that in this satisfaction, our lives will sing for joy and be glad all our days.

I don’t know about you but I’d love to be joyful and glad all my days. But this joyful gladness, like lovingkindness, is only found in Jesus Christ. Will we freshly turn to Him and allow Him to satisfy every aspect of our lives?
