Psalm 90:12 (NKJV)
12 So teach us to number our days,
That we may gain a heart of wisdom.
Ever since God issued the Ten Commandments, we’ve understood there is something special about that number. It serves as the foundation for our numerical system. Ten is the sum of the first four numbers (1+2+3+4) and the first two digit number. It brings us full circle. We view ten as complete and perfect, which is why we often say “On a scale of one to ten….”
Ten years make a decade. And since we only have about seven of them, we should pay attention. Verse 10 of Psalm 90 says that our current earthly lives are zipping by. Our years are “soon cut off, and we fly away,” But God is our dwelling place in all generations,” from “everlasting to everlasting” (verses 1-2)
Starting the year without Christ is like jumping into a dark, unknown patch of the future. But with our Lord, it’s like taking a step with the One who holds the future.
Lord, remind us to turn our attention to the importance of each day, each year, and each decade. Help us make our lives count for Christ
I really want to encourage you to be diligent with your Bible study time, because God has so much more for us than we can get from just going to church once or twice a week and hearing someone else talk about the Word. When you spend time with God, your life will change in amazing ways, because God is a Redeemer. There’s nothing that’s too hard for Him, and He can make you whole, spirit, soul and body!
