The Light Daily Devotional – Why Should We Number Our Days
Focus: Why Should We Number Our Days
WORD FOR TODAY
The key to numbering our days carefully is to remain closely connected to the Savior in prayer, Bible study, and fellowship ~Crystal McDowell
“So teach us to number our days, That we may gain a heart of wisdom.”(Psalm 90:12 NKJV)
We need to number our days for the following reasons:
1) Tomorrow isn’t promised to you (James 4:14): The sudden death of a loved one reminds us of our mortality on this earth. How could it be that someone we saw with life is dead in minutes or days? Yet it happens every day and we are reminded that we must work every day for the Lord as if it is our last.
2) Life on earth could be shorter than you think (Luke 12:20). We are not only aware of our mortality but of the brevity of life of people younger than us. We cannot breathe one moment longer than God allows.
3) Many missed opportunities can’t be restored (Hebrews 3:15). The problem with decisions we make in life is that we may not always get a second chance. If we miss opportunities or divine callings, we may never get to redo that moment. While there is hope even after a missed calling, we must make the most of every opportunity.
4) Relationships with family and friends could end without warning (Hebrews 3:13). We can easily take our family and friends for granted—assuming that they will always be around and available. Yet that is not the case, our closest companions could be snatched away at a moment’s notice and we don’t want our last memory to be overwhelmed with regret.
+ Have you learnt how to number your days?
Prayer: So teach me, Lord, to number my days, so that I might grow in wisdom so that I might live each day in the best possible way in Jesus name. Amen!
Emphasis: We need to number our days because there is a limit set for every human life in the land of the living!
Have a Superb Friday!
