Psalm 90:12So teach us to number our days,That we may gain a heart of wisdom.
I was reading through various scriptures and this verse was opened up to me. It is a request. This psalm is about living 70-80 years of your life and accomplishing nothing because it happened so fast. It also deals with a person who does not make their peace with God and just like that, life is over. So David made a request from the Lord, “Teach us to number our days.” How many years do you have left with your children at home? How many years of work do you have left until you retire? How many months are left for the goals your set for yourself this year? How many dates do you have planned? How many vacations are you saving for? How many friends are you keeping up with? How many mornings with God have your had this month? How many months do you have with your grandchildren before they start to school? How much money are you investing to retire on? Teach us to NUMBER our days. Set a goal! Accomplish it! Avoid regrets! Answer the question, “how many?” Before you know it, it’s all over! Maximize what you have NOW
