TOPIC: Number Your Days 1

“So teach us to number our days, that we may apply our hearts unto wisdom.” – (Psalm 90:12)

READJob 14:1-2 (KJV)


There are many lessons we can learn when we number our days – in other words, when we put a tally on our days in order to evaluate how we are faring. Numbering our days in whatever form such as birthdays, anniversaries of special events and so on can teach us great lessons and wisdom according to our memory verse today.

Why should we number our days? Our Bible reading for today gives us an answer. Man, born of a woman is of few days and even these few days are full of trouble. The Scripture likened man to a flower that blossoms then gets cut down and as a shadow that eventually disappears. These clearly show that man’s time on earth is short and hence must not be wasted.

We can count our days effectively by evaluating our lives, asking such questions as, “Do I have a goal at all?” “What are my goals?” “To what extent have I achieved my goals?” “Since I have a few days and these few days are full of challenges within and without, what am I doing in preparation for eternity?”

We can also number our days effectively by counting our blessings like the Psalmist did when he penned Psalm 103 – particularly verses 1 to 5. This will give us a sense of gratitude to God who has blessed us with multiple blessings even within our short stay here on earth. The Bible says:

For here have we no continuing city, but we seek one to come. By him therefore let us offer the sacrifice of praise to God continually, that is, the fruit of our lips giving thanks to his name. – (Hebrews 13:14-15) (March 9, 2022 Open Heaven Daily Devotional)

Another important reason we should number our days is the evaluation of how much work we have done for the Lord. When we consider the Great Commission (Mark 16:15) and remember that we have limited time on earth, it compels us to work harder and faster as the work of the Master demands urgency (John 9:4).

May the Almighty God help us to make excellent use of our time here on earth, in the mighty name of Jesus.

Ensure you evaluate your life carefully, count your blessings and name them one by one. Also, commit to doing more for the Kingdom of God.

Joshua 9-11
