16 Let us, your servants, see you work again; let our children see your glory. — Psalm 90:16 NLT
This Psalm is a prayer that Moses prayed to the Lord after God had given Israel the 40 year sentence in the desert for their disobedience. In it, Moses acknowledges that God is the Creator of all things and is still in control of all things. Moses understands that God not only created all things but that God has every right to give and take away as God sees fit. Just as Moses did, we must always acknowledge that whatever God chooses to do is just and right. His answers to our prayers are not always what we want to hear, but we can be sure that He always hears and answers in His own way and in His own time. After we have done that, we can present our requests to Him. Moses wanted God to show that generation and their children His power and glory once again. God chose not to relent until the 40 years had passed. During that time Moses passed away and Joshua became the leader of the children of Israel. It was then that God answered Moses’ prayer in the affirmative. He parted the waters of Jordan and gave the Israelis’ victory after victory against superior foes. He made their efforts successful. He is still doing the same things today in His own way and in His own time. “Ask and you shall receive” has not been removed from the Bible. Continue to walk in obedience, thanking God for His answer and when the time is right, we will see Him work and our children will see His glory.
