The BIBLE says that there is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under heaven. A time to be born and a time to die, a time to plant and a time to uproot. (Ecclesiastes 3:1-2)
One of the thing we celebrate in Life is the time of our BIRTH ,I’m thankful to the Lord for another year He has added to my Life last Monday November 19, we celebrate my birthday with our godfather and mother with their wonderful children and my two beautiful filipina friend Analiza and Maria Jose Jose Thankful to God for their Life too, on my birthday I prayed for my Mother remembering her as God used to bring me out to this world, The Bible say that before GOD has formed us in the womb He knew us before we were born ,He has set us apart ( Jeremiah 1:5) meaning he has plan Everything in our Life ,He plan who will be our Parents to bring us out to this world,He plan what you will be in the future etc.He determine the time set for us and the exact places where we should live , all the days ordained for us were written in the book of God before one of them came to be (psalm 139:16) .
*Note* God did not plan the bad thing that happened in our life ,he just allow it ” nothing happened without a reason” his plan is not to harm us but to prosper us ,he plan to give us hope and a future.( Jeremiah 29:11)
1.THE SPAN OF OUR LIFE
Psalm 90:10 says , the Lengths of our days is seventy years –or eighty if we have the Strength; yet their span is but trouble and sorrow ,for they quickly pass, and we fly away. If we Measure our Life with this verse from the time we were born from 1-40 years our strength is great it’s increasing through the years as we grew up, if we compare it to a Flower it is the time when flowers bud bloom beautifully ,if it is a grass or tree it is a time when the leaves are very green .BUT from 40-80 years in above ,our STRENGTH is depreciating diminishing as we grow older our strength is becoming weaker .It is like a Flowers that start to fall and a grass that start to wither.
*note * i am not saying here that the length of man’s life is just 70 or 80 only because some men lived much longer than that span of life ,I just watch the TV last week for a woman who reach 100 years as long we take care of our body with proper diet and exercise we will be healthy and could live longer also but I believe that according to God’s word after He flood the earth and shortened the life span of man from almost a thousand years like Methuselah who lived 969 years into 120 years only , today I have not seen or read a news for a man who reach 120 years before He died unless I miss it or not updated.
2.WHAT SHALL WE DO?
since our Life is very short what shall we do then, How many years left more to our Life? ‘For me I am now in the stage where in my physical strength is diminishing not increasing So while we are Strong and Alive Let us Serve The LORD , the bible says ,SEEK the Lord while He maybe found ,call on him while he is near , Let the wicked FORSAKE his ways and the evil man his thoughts Let him turn to the Lord and He will have mercy on him and to our God for He freely pardon.(Isaiah 55:6-7) while we have the opportunity ,while we have the time ,while we are strong and Alive let us seek the LORD and SERVE him.
3. WHY WE SHOULD SERVE GOD?
our service to God is what matter most in Life
because that is what is Eternal ,Our Relationship with God is what continuous even after our Life here on earth all other aspects of our lives is but temporary. JESUS has promised ,behold I am coming soon my reward is with me and i will give to everyone according to what he has done ( Revelation 22:12)
God is going to reward us with eternal blessing when He comes . Eternal Life and many more ..if you are reading this ,would you want me to pray for you by just sincerely praying this …
LORD JESUS , I surrender my life to you , help me to serve you with the remaining days and years of my Life , I ask you to forgive me of my sins ,Cleanse me with your blood that was shed on Calvary , I open my heart to recieved you as my personal Lord and Savior. In Jesus name, Amen.God bless you.
