God is love. We hear it again and again. It is absolutely true. He is love. But He is also just. God will punish sin. The psalmist said this, “If only we knew the power of your anger! Your wrath is as great as the fear that is your due. Teach us to number our days, that we may gain a heart of wisdom. Relent, Lord! How long will it be? Have compassion on your servants. Satisfy us in the morning with your unfailing love, that we may sing for joy and be glad all our days.” Psalm 90:11-14
“Teach us to number our days.” In other words, let’s take stock of each day. What are we doing? Are we making our time count for Christ or are we spending the time on ourselves? Someday, when we stand before God, will He say, “Depart” or will He say, “Well done”?
Lord Jesus, help me to make each day count for Your Kingdom. Guide me today to know what You want me to do with my time.
