Psalm 30:1-5 (Pt. 2)  Thought/Prayer:  A Moment/A Life-time.  Topics:  2 at end.

“I will extol thee, O Jehovah; for thou hast raised me up, And hast not made my foes to rejoice over me.
O Jehovah my God, I cried unto thee, and thou hast healed me.
O Jehovah, thou hast brought up my soul from Sheol; Thou hast kept me alive, that I should not go down to the pit.
Sing praise unto Jehovah, O ye saints of his, And give thanks to his holy memorial name .
For his anger is but for a moment; His favor is for a life-time: Weeping may tarry for the night, But joy cometh in the morning.”  ASV (Read these scriptures and more at http://prayerpivot.com.) 

In these words we might possibly be able to understand a bit about God’s character as revealed in the first half of the last sentence.  God’s anger “is but for a moment; His favor is for a life-time.”  There is a contrast of amounts of time here.  His anger with us lasts just for a moment.  His favor last for a life-time.  A moment compared to a lifetime.  There’s no contest here about God’s attitude toward us:  His favor wins out; His anger is abated; it doesn’t last.

This doesn’t mean, of course, that we can go around just doin’ our thing, doing things that make Him angry.  Our sin makes Him angry.  Our world makes Him angry when we do not honor Him.  He gets angry over injustice and terrible attitudes toward others.  But only for a “comparative” moment, we might say.  Compared with the love He has for us for a lifetime, His anger is short-lived.  It’s not that we do not need to go before Him and ask His forgiveness when we anger Him.  We do!  But forgiveness is right at hand.  Then He is no longer angry with us.  Fellowship is restored.  This gives us great peace.

When men and women, families, are dealing with unplanned out-of-wedlock pregnancies, there may be feelings that God is angry.  Only the people involved could assess God’s anger.  But feeling this way about God and His anger can produce great angst, particularly the angst of guilt.  This is where a sincere counselor can come in with the preciousness of God’s forgiveness and perhaps lead someone to confession - and then the receipt of God’s great forgiveness. 

Thank You, Lord, for your forgiveness and for Your character of love -  of favoring us - for a life-time.  So many are unaware of this favor toward us.  We ask that You might help us to place into needy and struggling hearts that your anger is much much shorter than your life-long love for us.

Topics:  Pray for better and better understanding, through life experiences, how God’s anger is but for a moment and His love for a life-time; and help us to bring others to this understanding.
