Psalm 90:10-12 – “The days of our lives are seventy years; and if by reason of strength they are eighty years, yet their boast is only labor and sorrow; for it is soon cut off, and we fly away.
11 Who knows the power of Your anger? For as the fear of You, so is Your wrath. 12 So teach us to number our days, that we may gain a heart of wisdom.” NKJV
Not only is PERCEPTION an essential in our becoming what God has purposed and desires for our lives but there is more.
- PREPARATION – – You Must Prepare To Get Where You Are Going.It is vital to know the Promises and Provisions of God’s Word – The Bible. The Bible is a tool, a weapon, a light, and a vital resource in our pursuit of His purposes. It is our guide and provides us with the required information to move from point “a” to point “b” spiritually.
It is important that we know our Inheritance in Him. Mentally we must become students of the Word absorbing it so that it becomes us and we become it. Physically we must present our bodies as living sacrifices to Him. Spiritually we must grow in grace experiencing His communion, making undying commitment and consecration to Him. It is by the leadership of the Holy Spirit and the directions of the Word of God that we are to travel from cradle to grave. We need to make preparation for the journey and be ready for any possibility and/or obstacle along the way. We are to be anchored in Truth and in that mooring we are Free!
- PROCEED – – We must Proceed on the Planned Way in Christ.
It is important that we know our Potential, see ourselves as Possibilities and TRUST GOD. Someone said, “Well I can’t be a Moses, Elijah, Paul, John, Peter, or Daniel.” That may be true but you can be that unique person with that unique niche in the Kingdom that nobody else can fill. What made those men unique? They were fully surrendered, obedient, teachable, and dared to dream God’s dreams. Why can’t you do that?
The Bible says we are “more than conquerors through Jesus” so why can’t we live as overcomers? Jesus declared, “The works that I do shall you do and greater works than these because I go to My Father” therefore why can’t His power, person, and purpose be a part of your life? Are you allowing opportunities to slip by through the passage of time? Remember you are God’s Child. You are on a course for a life of fulfillment in the Kingdom so let God take you there. Remember, “except the Lord build the house they labor in vain that build it…”
Since none of us know what tomorrow holds or how many tomorrows we will have on planet earth, today is the best day I know of to begin making every moment and every day count. I and you can do all things through Christ. We can and if we are not, why not?
God bless you as you go through this wonderful day in Him.
