It is September, and our children are back in school. The leaves are turning color, and before you know it; snow will be falling, and we will be wondering what happened to 2014? The days and weeks and months and years seem to roll one into another like a dream.
Psalm 90:12 “Teach us to number our days that we may gain a heart of wisdom.”
Take a few minutes this week, and think back on the events that have transpired. How many; births, deaths, how did the economy affect your life, how along did you get in reading your Bible, how many people did you bring to your local church, did you help anyone to receive Jesus’s gift of Salvation?
Psalm 39:4 “Show me, LORD, my life's end and the number of my days; let me know how fleeting my life is.”
I mention this as a beloved pastor friend of mine passed away last week and looking back what a wonderful life of commitment to Our LORD. At his funeral, his wife requested the church to have 50 people in the chorus worshiping God, raising the roof off the church with singing full of love. Just imagine the choir he must have heard when he met with Jesus in person? Awesome!
Job 9:25 “My days are swifter than a runner; they fly away without a glimpse of joy.”
Let us to do the same. As we become more cautious of our fleeting days let us become more appreciative of the Lord's providence and more aware of His favor on us.
Job 7:6 “My days are swifter than a weaver's shuttle, and they come to an end without hope.”
