Ordain The Day!

George Whitten2 90x115by George Whitten

Psalms 90:12 So teach us to number our days, that we may apply our hearts unto wisdom.

In this passage, Moses asks the Lord to help us to be aware of the limited number of days we have here on the earth, which, in itself, is an important principle of life. But the Hebrew word in this passage has a deeper meaning than simply "counting" or "numbering" our days. The Hebrew "manah" also means to "appoint" or "ordain". “Teach us to appoint our days,” or “teach us to ordain our days”, not simply count them. The idea of consecrating our days, or setting them apart for His purposes expresses the deeper meaning.

If you let your days go by without ordaining them, they will simply fly by. However if you ordain your days – your weeks – recognizing both their number and potential significance, then ultimately your entire life will be "appointed" and "ordained" for the Lord’s purposes and your years will be filled with meaning and with wisdom – and that will have a profound effect on how you spend eternity.

Our prayer is that you will not only "number" your days, recognizing how short they really are, but also that you will "ordain" and "appoint" them for the Lord’s purposes, and so doing, will hear these wonderful words: "Well done, thou good and faithful servant!"

Your family in the Lord with much agape love
