“So teach us to number our days, that we may gain a heart of wisdom” (Psalm 90:12 NKJV)

October 22, 2015

This Mosaic psalm encourages us to be aware of the fleeting nature of life and to determine not to waste our days. This is not a morbid instruction, but one that faces reality. We have a finite number of days appointed unto us. Number them, be aware that each day is a gift from God and a holy stewardship. The promise of eternal life should not release us to waste this season, but should pull us toward investing every moment we have for God, so that we store up riches in heaven.

“So teach us to number our days, that we may gain a heart of wisdom” (Psalm 90:12 NKJV)

Understanding that our days are numbered can motivate us to live life with a sense of urgent importance. “Urgent,” because putting off till tomorrow means eventually running out of tomorrows. If the Lord has put it on your heart, then do it now! And “important,” because we often fill our days with unimportant things. Prayerfully consider what is most important, then focus on those things every day. This is not a morbid state of mind, being aware of your limited days. This is wisdom, not wasting the time God has given you on planet earth. Don’t waste your life!

“Teach us to realize the brevity of life, so that we may grow in wisdom” (Psalms 90:12)

October 22, 2012

Understanding that life is short, we live with a sense of urgency and purpose, not wasting the day because night is coming soon. We also strip away the things that don’t matter and focus on the eternal things that last. Such is the life of wisdom, of one who lives knowing that tomorrow is not promised.

Wisdom understands that our time here is short, so don’t waste your life. Live for God with passion, power, and a sense of Divine urgency. If the “length of our days is seventy,” then stop thinking of retirement. Let God use you up and all the more till the end.
