The days and years of our life

We do not look at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen. For the things which are seen are temporary, but the things which are not seen are eternal.

Today, if you will hear his (God’s) voice, do not harden your hearts.

2 Corinthians 4:18; Hebrews 4:7.

The days and years of our life
Solomon, the king reputed for his wisdom and intelligence was also exceedingly rich (2 Chronicles 9:22.23). Yet all his experience led to one final conclusion that might surprise us: “Vanity of vanities, all is vanity” (Ecclesiastes 1:2). This expression correctly characterises all that is on earth in contrast to all that is of God and heaven. Down here futility reigns.

This breath, this vapour that is our life, appears for a time, then vanishes (James 4:14) when God so decides, for our life is in His hands (Psalm 31:15). Before old age sets in with all its inconveniences (loneliness, physical weakness, forgetfulness, lack of concentration), God wishes to draw our attention to eternal matters, so that passing things recede in importance. In a psalm by Moses He gives us a résumé of human life: “the days of our lives are seventy years; and if by reason of strength they are eighty years, yet their boast is only labour and sorrow; for it is soon cut off, and we fly away” (Psalm 90:10). After stating this fact, Moses asks God to “teach us to number our days, that we may gain a heart of wisdom” (v. 12). Let us each one today count the number of days He has granted us so far. Whatever the number, we do not know how many are still to come. Today is the appropriate day to believe His Word and live the life given by God as a result.

Today’s reading: Malachi 3:13-4:6 · Mark 16:12-20

UNCOVERING EVIL

The presence of the supernatural power of God in a church can take that church beyond limits.
It can also uproot the presence of evil in the midst of Gods children. In Acts 5, a couple were uprooted through this. If we are going to sanitise the church, we need the Holy Spirit. Just as we need Him to heal, save...More

Jesus says to her, Mary. She, turning around, ...


Jesus says to her, Mary. She, turning around, says to Him in Hebrew, Rabboni, which means Teacher. Jesus says to her, Touch Me not, for I have not yet ascended to My Father; but go to My brethren and say to them, I ascend to My Father and your Father, and to My God and your God.
