Scripture

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

Observation

In the passages of Scripture in Psalm 90, the Psalmist meditates on the eternal everlasting existence of God and recognizes the vapor of time that a person actually lives on earth in comparison. To God, a thousand years are as a day when they are past; whereas, the days of our natural lives on earth are only 70 or 80 short years and when they are past, they are gone forever.

Application

Like a pebble of sand on the combined seashores of the earth is our life in comparison to the eternity of God; therefore, we must appreciate and value each day we are given to live on earth as a rare and precious gift from God. We are only given one opportunity to make a difference in the lives of others with each day of our life that comes and goes like the passing of a ship at night. If we fail to appropriately value and passionately live on purpose each moment of each day of our life, the allotted number of our days may come and go without the complete fulfillment of our God-given destiny and purpose.

Prayer

Thank You Lord for each new day that you give me to live life in the fullness of Christ. Because Your mercies are new every morning, I thank You for the opportunity to begin a fresh new day to live the abundant life that You died to give me. As Your Word declares Lord, “This is the day that You have made, I will rejoice and be glad in it!” Help me Lord to be a wise steward of this day and each new day that You give me to live my life on purpose and make a lasting impact for Your kingdom. I love you Jesus! Amen!
