Teach Us To Number Our Days

Sometimes, I like looking at old photos. It brings great memories and reminds me how fast life can pass by. Each day is a gift that can never come back.

As I was studying the Bible this week using Roots and Wings devotional study, I came across Psalm 90:12 which says “Teach us to number our days that we may present to You a heart of wisdom“. It really is saying that we should realize how short our lives are. We are nothing but we are just like the wind. We can be here today but be gone tomorrow.

Knowing this, we should live our days focusing on what matters eternally. Most of us spend too much time worrying what tomorrow might bring, or working too hard so we can earn the money our children will need, but we should take a moment and pause… is this what really matters eternally?

Every day that we wake up, we should take time to pray and ask God for His wisdom and His direction. As Ephesians 5:15-17 says “Look carefully then how you walk, not as unwise but as wise, making the best use of the time, because the days are evil.  Therefore do not be foolish, but understand what the will of the Lord is.”
