​Your  Days Are Numbered – Job 14:5

Your days are numbered and you can’t exceed it, so be vigilant enough to live a godly life with strong faith to find favour in the sight of God.

Your days are numbered

Your days are numbered

There is something inevitable waiting for us all.In one of my recent posts I talked about how death teaches us lessons and reasons why we should not be afraid of death.But today, I would like to share with you the amazing fact God has revealed in his word. He has made Christians and everyone know that his days on earth are numbered. Yes,your days on earth are numbered. God knows the day you will die.Can you imaging seeing yourself  laid down in your grave?. One day you will end up in the grave but you have no idea when that moment will come.My dear reader, fear the everlasting God,the Alpha and the Omega.He knows the day you will die.Let’s read from the book of Job 14:5;-

” Since man’s days are determined, the number of his months is under your control; you have set his limit and he cannot pass it.”

“And he cannot not pass it”,look how touching it sounds.Before I go further with this very verse let us  first  consider this fact;God has said, he knew you before you were born.This is another amazing and mysterious fact about God.The Lord said to Jeremiah:

“Before I formed you in your mother’s womb I chose you. Before you were born I set you apart. I appointed you to be a prophet to the nations.”(Jeremiah 1:5).

Before you came to this earth,he knew you,and has even numbered your hair.There is nothing about you that God doesn’t know about.You only know about your date of birth but not your date of death. Amazingly God knows all,your days are numbered so value each day and remember to worship the creator of heaven and earth for he is great and worthy to be praised.
As you go about your daily routines, remember that your days are numbered so use it wisely because one day you will account for everything you are doing on earth.The average lifespan of man is 70 – 75, but today many people hardly reach that age,greater percentage of kids and youths are dying.God knows it,Christians mustn’t be afraid of death, because in the last day we shall rise and stay with our Lord Jesus Christ. Death is simply a transition from our physical world to the spiritual world. Although your days are numbered,but if you live as a true Christian, you will live again even if you die .Jesus said some people wouldn’t taste death before he comes. Let us be watchful all days for the coming of our Lord Christ Jesus is at hand.
