Number Your Days

July 28, 2014

Psalm 90:12

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


The Bible has many references to the brevity of life. How fast our lives are on this earth, and how insignificant they are when all we do is build our lives on earthly thoughts and possessions. Our lives in and of themselves are completely meaningless. We were not created to find glory in this life, rather God created us to find Glory and Purpose in HIM.

How many times have you heard of the rich who have everything this world has to offer, yet they are still empty and searching? My point exactly. We all will be searching our entire lives, unless we find Jesus Christ, and allow Him into our hearts to be Lord of our lives. Then, we are to align our lives with His Will, which we learn through His Word and spending time in prayer.

The Holy Spirit will then teach, counsel, and lead you into all truth. But we must keep our hearts soft, and remain transparent and have others holding us accountable.

When we can get to this point we can then accept that we are here for God’s Purpose. We will not understand it, maybe in tiny glimpses for short periods of time. But for the most part we must rely on faith in Him, and trust in His Will.

Now we start living for His purposes! When we do that we realize that everything we do or don’t do will either bring us closer to Him or farther from Him.

When it comes to time, our constant questions is always; What time is it? But a much more important question, a questions we should ask ourselves constantly is:

What am I doing with my time?

Time is our most precious and valuable resource. God has given us all a certain balance, and one day, who knows when that balance will run out.

Live in a way that Glorifies God. Live in a way where you don’t waste this precious resource called time. Live in a way were you are growing in the Grace and Knowledge of the Lord Jesus Christ. Live in a way so when you are face to face with the Son of God you will hear these words:

Matthew 25:23

His master said to him, ‘Well done, good and faithful servant. You have been faithful over a little; I will set you over much. Enter into the joy of your master.’ 

Heavenly Father, Teach me to number my days, that I will grow in wisdom. Help me to see the value in time, because if I can see it I will live more purposefully. Then I will trust you and follow you to fulfill the purpose YOU have for my life. In Jesus Name Amen

    Good morning,
    I have been slowly reading this book called driven by Eternity. So far it’s really about Making your Life count today & forever. As my cousin would say I saved this ” nugget ” in my notes.

    “Many things lost in life can be restored however time misused can never be recovered.” By John Bevere

    Thank you for the word this morning it really kicked started my devotion time. Here is a prayer from Moses in Psalms 90:12,17 NLT that I think goes with this mornings word.

    ” Teach us to make the most of our time…and make our efforts successful. Yes, make our efforts successful!

    Have ah blessed day Aloha

    Amen. When we live a life for Jesus, we will reap the benefits both in this life and the next. Stay strong, stay focused, and perserver through trials and tribulations, always keeping our hearts and minds on our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
