Job 14:5 Our time on earth is brief; the number of our days is already decided by you.
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 will go on forever and it will in eternity but life on earth is short lived.
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 plea with you on 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".
None of us will escape death, for it is an appointment that we all will keep. It can not be cancelled nor avoided.
Seek wisdom on today. Seek God. Seek Him while He may be found; call upon Him while He is near.
