Dear Precious Friends,
As we begin our Magnificent Monday and new week we are reminded "This is the day the Lord has made, I will rejoice and be glad in it"Psalm 118:24. He reminds us to number our days and remember how brief our life is.
It is so easy to get distracted with worldly pursuits. Satan loves to get us off course. On this Monday as we embrace a new week, let us be about our Fathers Business first. Seeking Him First!
Teach us to number our days, that we may gain a heart of wisdom.” The request “teach us to number our days” means that we need God to reveal to us the brevity of life. That revelation will help us grow wise, and wisdom is important because the choices we make during our brief stay on earth have eternal consequences.
May we rejoice when our day doesn't go as we think it should because God's plan is always better than ours. May we live less by what our eyes see and more by what His promises say; He promises not to fail us. As believers, we are in pursuit of wisdom, goodness, and the kingdom of God (Matthew 6:33).
WISDOM, GOODNESS AND GOD'S KINGDOM... THESE ARE OUR PURSUITS.
But when we learn to number our days, we see each day as a valuable gift and an opportunity to store up treasure in heaven (Luke 12:33)
We are created to walk in fellowship with God, discovering the mysteries and delights He has scattered throughout creation.
The Lord enjoys partnering with us as we pursue all He designed for us to accomplish (Psalm 37:23; Ephesians 2:10).
None of us knows how many days God has assigned to us on this earth. But we have today. We have Gods presence and His promises. And we are called to think long, to think past this life, to live with eternity in mind. We have today. We don’t know about tomorrow.
So this moment? This gift from God? May we open our hands and offer it back to Jesus. May we live, move, and find our life completely and profoundly in Him.
For in Him we live and move and have our being. Acts 17:28
We are mighty in God. Have a great day today!
Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they will be filled. ~Matthew 5:
