Catechesis Notes for the Week — Psalm 90 — A Prayer of Total Reliance Upon the God of Creation for our Salvation—Moses is the psalmist who pens Psalm 90. He recalls how the LORD had been the “dwelling place” of his people in all generations. This LORD, who called Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob to faith, and who redeemed Israel from slavery, is none other than the God of creation. He created the heavens and the earth and brought forth the great mountains after the flood. The Lord is eternal, the great I AM. “A thousand years in Your sight are like yesterday when it is past.” Moses recalls the frailty of his sinful people. The age of a man is perhaps only 70 or 80 years. The LORD is just in His anger. But ultimately, the LORD who created all things is also the God of their salvation and the beauty of the Lord rests upon those who call upon His name.
