Totally Terrific Tuesday – El Olam

Psalm 90:1-2 (37 kb)

For a thousand years in Your sight 
   are like a day that has just gone by, 
   or like a watch in the night.

Psalm 90:4, 10-11

        The length of our days is seventy years—
       or eighty, if we have the strength;
       yet their span is but trouble and sorrow,
       for they quickly pass, and we fly away.

       Who knows the power of Your anger?
       For your wrath is as great as
the fear that is due You.

Psalm 90:12 (50 kb)

Today:

Reflect On:       Psalm 90

Praise God:       For He has no beginning and no end.

Offer Thanks:    That God has made your soul immortal.

Confess:             Any tendency to live without reference of heaven.

Ask God:           To make you grateful for every day that passes.

Yesterday I spoke about the very thing Ann finished today's reading on – we are finite beings and have many limitations as humans.   God is eternal and because of the gift given to each of us through the death of His Son and the power of His resurrection – we are also eternal! 

Ann wrote this:  Scripture teaches us that wisdom comes, not from living a long life, but from numbering our days aright, which is another way of reminding us that death could come to us anytime, anywhere, at any moment.  For those who have faith in the everlasting God, this prospect can help keep us humble and focused, humble because we recognize our limitations and focused because we believe that ever day matters.  Let it be said of us, not that we died laughing (great as that might be), but that we died loving and trusting our eternal future to the everlasting faithfulness of God.

God is much less concerned with our happiness, than we put our trust, faith and hope.  He is much more concerned with our character and whether or not we are allowing Him to be our all in all.  

Every single day is a blessing and a gift.  He holds our every breath in His hands.   Let us live each day like He is returning so that we may be found faithful to all that He has given us!   Let us live each day unto the Lord!  Let us live each day grateful and give thanks to God for all that He has done and will do in our lives!

Can you take a moment and vote on my poll in the top sidebar?  Thank you!  Please pray for God’s will to be done whether or not I get selected to go on this trip or the next!   Please pray about sponsoring a child through Compassion International -– the need is greater now than ever before!
