Our Days Are Determined

‘Man’s days are determined; You have decreed the number of his months and have set limits he cannot exceed.’ Job 14:5
We like to think we are in complete control of our lives, don’t we? Yet God’s word makes it clear indeed that we are not. He is. And since He is, it behooves us to pay attention to that fact and realize the benefits attached to it.
Having a limited number of days does not create a limit to our accomplishments. With willing hearts and God’s grace and guidance, much can be done in a short amount of time.
Take every day as it comes; capture every minute and hour, and put it to the best use. Do not squander time. Rather, give your time to God, and ask Him to bless it, and to enrich it, and to give it value. He will do this if we ask. He will use us for the purposes He has intended for us to accomplish in His name.
Whether our days on this earth are many or few, we can make a difference. We can enrich the lives of others, which in turn enriches ours. Joy in the Lord is never limited, is never cut short. It lasts into the eternity. But we can be sure it will be with us during the days that are determined by our mighty Creator, if we will stop worrying about time, and pay attention to devotion to Him. Let us serve regardless of our time on this earth. Let us serve with love and determination to bless the heart of God.
