DEVOTIONAL:

"Teach us to number our days, that we may gain a heart of wisdom." Psalm 90:12


What Moses wants is to “Live Wise.” That’s why he prays, “Teach us to number our days that we may gain a heart of wisdom” [Psalm 90:12]. Living wise is not resolving to increase our own strength, but resolving to increase our faith in the All-Knowing and All-Powerful Creator. Living wise is growing in dependence on our Creator, not a growing independence.


The wise man and woman knows “To everything, there is a season, A time for every purpose under heaven” [Ecclesiastes. 3:1]. Life is filled with joy and sorrow. Sickness and health. Prosperity and adversity. Good and bad. Ups and downs. Problems can be solved. Mistakes can be corrected. Obstacles can be overcome. And even our sins can be forgiven by the grace of God. Wisdom takes each day in stride. One day does not define our entire life.


Our earthly lives are full of limitations, but God’s wisdom and power is boundless. His timeline is infinite, and His purposes are everlasting. Moses prays, "Teach us..." "Teach us to number our days..." Compared to eternity, life as we know it in this world, is short. While living here, we are to make the most of each day - glorifying God and serving His eternal purposes by making Him known in the world. The apostle Paul, under the inspiration of the Holy Spirit, instructs believers, "Walk in wisdom toward those who are outside, redeeming the time" [Colossians 4:5]. In other words, make the most of each day, by influencing the lost with the Good News about Jesus Christ. Live in the power and influence of His name. Live a Christ-centered life, not a crisis-centered life. Focus on the life you have in His name [John 20:31].


Our names have limitations. If we live only within our own authority and influence, then we will always be constrained. Only one Name elevates you beyond your natural limitations. It’s the Name that can cause you to go where you’ve never gone; do what you’ve never done or even imagined yourself capable of doing.


"Now to Him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us, to Him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus to all generations, forever and ever. Amen" [Ephesians 3:20-21].
