Passage: Psalm 90:11-12

Urgency

Who knoweth the power of thine anger? even according to thy fear, so is thy wrath. So teach us to number our days, that we may apply our hearts unto wisdom.

(PSALM 90:11-12)

Since our days in this world are numbered by our God let us be diligent in the days he has given us, serving him with meekness and fear. The day of our departure is certain to God, though unknown to us. None of us know how much time we have left in this world. Yet, this is certain: No one has time to spare! The very thought of this ought to make rebels tremble. Oh, be wise! “Seek ye the Lord while he may be found! Call ye upon him while he is near!” (ISAIAH 55:6)—“Prepare to meet thy God!” (AMOS 4:12)

Every believer should seek wisdom and grace to live every day as though he was certain it would be his last. Whatever it is that we have to do for the glory of Christ, the furtherance of the gospel, the increase of God’s kingdom, and the good of men’s souls, let us do it today! We ought to live every day with a sense of urgency. Life is urgent, for “time is short!” (1 CORINTHIANS 7:29) We would be wise to pray with Moses, “Teach us,” O Lord, “to number our days, that we may apply our hearts unto wisdom.”
