Numbering the Days...

"So teach us to number our days, that we may get us a heart of wisdom."
Psalm 90:12 (AMP)

This is the time of year where people around the world are making resolutions for the New Year. In the church, in particular, we must be very careful about allowing a date to dictate our sacrifice of worship. Too many of us are waiting for the latest prophecy or catchy cliche that will promise prosperity and change in 2010. But, what about 2009? What about all the prophecy and godly instruction we failed to complete during the last twelve months?

Unfortunately, there are still thousands of people around this globe that will never see January 1. For that reason, it's important to understand that NOW is the day of salvation. As people of God, we understand that God operates in seasons... not by our natural calendars. If we are currently in a season of disobedience, repentance is necessary before a change comes. It takes more than a mere change of date.

Let's resolve to savor every moment, with a readiness to repent and continue in Kingdom building TODAY, tomorrow and every day thereafter. There is no doubt in my mind that God will continue blessing us in 2010, but we don't have to wait for the new year in order to offer Him a living sacrifice, holy and acceptable, which is our reasonable service. Amen!
