THE WORD FOR TODAY
Psalm 88-90 (Click to read Today’s Word)
Psalm 90: 12 So teach us to number our days, That we may gain a heart of wisdom.
There was popular song some years ago that had these words, “Wasted days and wasted nights…”.
After talking about the very nature of God and what HE sees, knows and is able to do the Psalmist asks God, “So teach us to number our days, That we may gain a heart of wisdom.”
Time is so precious that ought to not be found guilty not making the best use of the time we are given on this earth. I didn’t really know time was moving so fast until I turned 40 years old…over 11 years ago. One second spent the wrong robs us of hours of joy whereas one minute spent the right way gives us years of joy in remembering that minute. So LORD teach to number our days.
I can’t help but believe that counting our days means 1: depending on God for strength and wisdom each day, 2: honoring God with all that we say and do everyday, 3: not taking TIME for granted…knowing that it is precious and is as the morning dew…not here for long. So let’s ask HIM to teach us to number our days that we may gain a heart of wisdom.
Father, help me be a great steward of my day…bring honor and glory to YOU and to YOUR Way for my life. Fill me with wisdom to live rightly before YOUR all-knowing gaze…In Jesus Name…AMEN!!!
