Psalm 90:9

For all our days pass away under your wrath;
we bring our years to an end like a sigh.
(ESV)
There are some verses that I sit down to write a commentary for, and it almost seems an injustice to try to rephrase them. This would be one of those verses.

So, instead of giving a specific commentary, let me challenge you, as I have been challenged in these last few weeks.

When you read the Bible, read it devotionally. In other words, read it with the knowledge that you are truly reading The very Words of God. Read it like there is something there for you. Pray before you read it. Whether it is your personal reading time or you just notice a verse in a book or a blog. It doesn't matter who quotes it, when you read it, remember that it is God's word.

It is living and powerful. It is sharp. It will cut you all the way down to the soul and the spirit, even to where the thoughts and the intents of the heart lie.

According to this verse, your days are passing away. So, read it with prayer and an already open heart.
