      Having the Time of your Life

-Psalms 90:12

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

    The writer of this Psalm is saying to the people, that they have pretty much wasted their lives and now their life is just a story that is just about finished. He's telling them, if they are going to do anything for God, then they need to make the rest of their days count for something.

     Proverbs 3 (KJV)

16. Length of days is in her right hand; and in her left hand riches and honor.

     Throughout the scriptures we are told that there are things that we do that can shorten or lengthen our life on this earth. By applying Godly wisdom to the things we do, there is a good chance that we will live out our days to the fullest possibly and (with prosperity).    

Ephesians 5 (KJV)

16. Redeeming the time, because the days are evil.

     Paul tells the Church here to wakeup and not to live their lives like fools do. "Redeeming the time"; in other words make every moment count, take every opportunity available to live their lives for God.

     Anyone can live a so-so life or have just a mere existence in this world that we live in, but it takes a real effort to live for Christ. It seems that there is compromise around every corner, that it takes a real resolve to walk out a life of Faith. 

     There is an almost paradox when living for God; on one hand scripture says that following after Godly wisdom will led to long life; yet, on the other hand there may be times where our faith may led us to martyrdom. Where we lose this life, but gain eternal life. In truth, you really haven't lived until you have given away your life to the Lord.

     The question that might be asked: Who has your time? Is it the Lord, is it the world or are you trying to keep it all to yourself? No one knows how long they have, the only thing we can do is "count our days" or make each day count as if it's our last!
