Psalm 90:12 So teach us to count our days, so that we will become wise.
Esther 4:14 For if you fail to speak up now, relief and deliverance will come to the Jews from a different direction; but you and your father’s family will perish. Who knows whether you didn’t come into your royal position precisely for such a time as this.”
Romans 13:11 Besides all this, you know at what point of history we stand; so it is high time for you to rouse yourselves from sleep; for the final deliverance is nearer than when we first came to trust.
Time… We all know that time is “ticking.” Time is “short” so many people say. “Take advantage of today” because we don’t know what tomorrow will bring.
The first verse above does have the word, “time” in it, but it is about “teaching us to count our days.” Time… help us understand TODAY. We want to become wise, so help us know how to COUNT on HIM for ALL that we have.
Romans is clear: ROUSE yourselves from sleep. The final deliverance is nearer than when we first came to trust. TIME is short. High time to WAKE up.
The last is a very well known verse from the book of Esther. “Who knows whether you didn’t come into your royal position precisely for such a TIME as this.”
How have you prepared for the times we are living in?
Have you counted the days so you can become wise?
Have you understood the “point of history we stand in” so you are able to ROUSE yourself from sleep and be ready for His return?
Do you understand that you are like Esther and in a position of needing to be READY at ALL times so you can share HIS Words with those who need to hear it?
We are definitely in a time of truly needing to seek Him in Spirt and Truth. We are in a time of needing to KNOW Him in deep and intimate ways. If we are not GROUNDED in WHO He is, we won’t be ready to face Him when He does come.
Lord, give us ALL the insight and clarity we need to know the TIMES we are living in. PREPARE our hearts for what you have NEED of us to do. Give us the strength to TRUST you in Spirit and Truth.
Thank you, Father, for being our guide. Thank you, Spirit for lighting the path so we can walk where YOU want us to walk.
Friends, stay the course. LISTEN to HIM and know the signs of the times. Be prepared for ALL He wants you to do.
Time is precious, use it wisely…
