Oh To Be Wise Meditations
A person’s days are determined; LORD you have decreed the number of their months and have set limits they cannot exceed. God created Time and yet He doesn't live in it. He created it for us to have "Time" to know Him who is eternity. Yes, He has put eternity in our hearts and minds and it almost seems like without Him in our lives we cease to exist! The good news is that we have been given an allotted time and purpose on this earth. The bad news is that we do not have forever to fulfill it. Listen to Job 14:6-12, So leave us alone and let us rest! We are like hired hands, so let us finish our work in peace. At least there is hope for a tree: If it is cut down, it will sprout again, and its new shoots will not fail. Its roots may grow old in the ground and its stump die in the soil, yet at the scent of water it will bud and put forth shoots like a plant. But a man dies and is laid low; he breathes his last and is no more. As the water of a lake dries up or a riverbed becomes parched and dry, so he lies down and does not rise; till the heavens are no more, people will not awake or be roused from their sleep. Many of us live lives hoping Jesus does not come at midday. There is so much that people want to do and accomplish but there never is enough time, is it? May we be like the Apostle Paul and live everyday focused on the prize of Heaven. So that Holy Spirit can confirm in us that we have fought the good fight and have finished the race God has set before us. The question on your mind after reading this is I hope: Am I taking advantage of the time I have been given to know Him the Father and the LORD Jesus Christ?
