Time is life. Time enables us to live, grow, and learn. God, the Giver of Life, is also the Giver of Time. He has given each of us a set amount of time to live our life, and there is nothing that we can do to prolong that time. Since his days are determined the number of his months is with You; and his limits You have set so that he cannot pass (Job 14:5).
This is something that has been on my mind a lot lately. I don’t know how much time I have. I could live until I’m eighty three, or I could die tomorrow. I don’t know. But the fact that we have a limited time on this earth should provoke us to use that time wisely.
So teach us to number our days that we may get a heart of wisdom.
Give me wisdom, Lord. Help me to not take my time on this earth for granted. Teach me to number my days, and give me the strength to live as You did. Help us all to live in a manner worthy of You.
