So teach us to number our days, that we may gain a heart of wisdom (Psalm 90:12).
An event that causes someone to seriously reflect on his or her life has a purpose. Everyone needs to take inventory regarding how they are spending their days. A day is like a dollar, it can be spent wisely or foolishly, but once it is spent, it cannot be spent again.
Lord, make me to know my end, and what is the measure of my days, that I may know how frail I am. (Psalm 39:4)
John Eldredge in The Journey of Desire writes; “We are at war, and the bloody battle is over our hearts. I am astounded how few Christians see this; how little they protect their hearts. We act as though we live in a sleepy little town during peacetime. We don’t. We live in the spiritual equivalent of (a war-torn country). Act like it.
Watch over your heart. Don’t let just anything in; don’t let it go just anywhere. What’s this going to do to my heart? Is a question that I ask in every situation.
What would happen if we prayed every day, “O Lord God, help me measure my days and ask of everything I confront: What will this to do to my heart?”
Because every person’s time on earth is short, God’s people must invest their days so they will count for eternity.
- Are you guarding your heart with all diligence?
- Are you careful to think about what you allow into your life?
Prayer: Father help me to number my days and be careful what I allow into my heart. I thank You that You are my Lord and the lover of my soul. Amen!
