5/15/17 Moments of Wisdom
“Have you ever considered each moment I give you to be a treasure? I do! You will be called to account for them. None of them can ever be redeemed. Jesus died for your right to spend them with Me. Do you now see how valuable they are? Spend them wisely. Dedicate each moment of your day to Me. Use them for My work. They are limited. When your allotted time is used up and I call you home, will I be able to say “Well done”?
"Repent now of all the time you have wasted. Begin to cherish your every breath. I have called them into being. I own each one of them. Use them wisely!”
Psalm 127:1 AMP
Except the Lord builds the house, they labor in vain who build it; except the Lord keeps a city, the watchman wakes but in vain.
Proverbs 20:24a AMP
Man’s steps are ordered by the Lord….
Isaiah 2:22 AMP
Cease to trust in [weak, frail, and dying] man, whose breath is in his nostrils [for so short a time]; in what sense can he be counted as having intrinsic worth?
Hebrews 12:12-13 NLB
12) So take a new grip with your tired hands and stand firm on your shaky legs.
13) Mark out a straight path for your feet. Then those who follow you, though they are weak and lame, will not stumble and fall but will become strong.
Because of our daily struggles and pursuits, we forget that every breath we take is important to God. Daily life often overshadows the importance of God’s plans for us. We forget that He has given us limited time to do His work and that we will be called to account for the time we have been given on this earth.
How do you plan your days? Is every moment dedicated to God? Does He have complete charge of your every breath, or do you go about your business as if there will be no accounting of your time? You have been bought with a price, the precious blood of Jesus. Isn’t it time to make each moment of your life count?
I give them all to You, Lord,
