May your people worship you as long as the sun shines, as long as the moon gives light, for ages to come.” (Psalm 72:5, GNB)

The psalmist here calls for God’s people to be God-worshipers for “as long as the sun shines,” which will be very long indeed.  The psalmist does not stop with the current age, he prays for God’s people to keep on worshiping God “for ages to come.”

This is good and right and God is the greatest being in the universe so he deserves that we worship him “as long as the sun shines” and beyond the shining of the sun, for he created the sun and the stars and all of the universe.

Spurgeon: “We see on the shore of time the wrecks of the Caesars, the relics of the Moguls, and the last remnants of the Ottomans. Charlemagne, Maximilian, Napoleon, how they flit like shadows before us! They were and are not; but Jesus for ever is.”
