Our hearts cry out loudly for all we know! The beyond amazing fact is that we are Known in entirety! Every moment of our existence is Known!
Every Man has been allotted a number of days here on Earth.
Scripture declares that the number of our days on Earth is already known by God and that none of us will live one minute beyond the time that God has already given each one of us.
Even if we lived to be 100 or even 200 years, what are those years in comparison to eternity???
How are you living out the days that God has numbered for you? What are you doing with your time? Are you wasting it by making unwise decisions, or is your life producing fruit that will multiply in the Kingdom of God?
A fool despises wisdom and instruction. The foolish and unbelieving person thinks that life here on Earth is it, but many who have rejected Christ and His Gospel will be horrified after transitioning from Earth to eternity realizing that they will be separated from God forever.
Have you ever given thought to these things? What is the number of your days? What will be the day of my last breath? When my last breath is drawn, will I have lived my life as one wise or foolish? When life on this side is over, where will I spend eternity?
Scripture declares in Hebrews 9:27 As it is appointed for men to die once, but after this comes the judgment.
If you have not been living your days here on Earth as wise, but as foolish, I urge, beg and plead with you today that you would incline your ear unto wisdom that is only found in The Word of God. I can only hope and pray that your prayer too is “Lord, teach me to number my days”.
Many “believed” in Jesus because of seeing the miracles He did in Jerusalem (John 2:23), but these two verses strongly imply that many of these “believers” were not true converts. Saving faith is more than merely to recognize the facts about Jesus, to simply acknowledge that He is the promised Messiah. Physical miracles may have convinced these men of Christ’s Messianic status, but many of them seem not to have experienced that “miracle of the soul” called conversion.
And we pray:
Lord, You did not put Your trust in men when You walked this Earth. You did not seek to build up Your Own fame or fortune or seek out flattery from Man. You simply went about doing the work Your Father gave You to do. May we who have experienced Your saving power follow Your example in this and seek simply to be faithful to You in all things. Amen.
