4 Facts of Life (Psalm 90) - Notes



1. The Shortness of Life: 
Life is Like Grass That Withers, Like A Sleep

Psa 90:5-6 
They are like a sleep. In the morning they are like grass which grows up. In the morning it flourishes and grows up; In the evening it is cut down and withers.

Psa 90:10 The days of our lives are seventy years; and if by reason of strength they are eighty years...

2. The Struggles of Life:
Life is Full of Struggles

Psa 90:10 their boast is only labor and sorrow; for it is soon cut off, and we fly away.

3. The Seriousness of Life:
We Are Accountable To God For The Way We Spend Our Time Here

Psa 90:3 You turn man to destruction, And say, "Return, O children of men."

Psa 90:12 So teach us to number our days, That we may gain a heart of wisdom.

4. The Satisfaction of Life:
True Fulfillment Is Only In God

Psa 90:14 Oh, satisfy us early with Your mercy, that we may rejoice and be glad all our days!

Psa 90:16-17 Let Your work appear to Your servants, and Your glory to their children. And let the beauty of the LORD our God be upon us, and establish the work of our hands for us; yes, establish the work of our hands.
