Today’s 333 Devotional: “Living Intentionally”
We must look at our need and reassess our lives if we’re going to live our lives intentionally because we only have so many days to live upon this earth before eternity sets in.
This reality is what drove King David to live his life intentionally, realizing that the end of his life was only a single breath away.
“Show me, O Lord, my life’s end and the number of my days; let me know how fleeting is my life.” (Psalm 39:4)
In the process of reassessing our lives, we’ll find that those things we consider to be important just might not be all that important after all. To reassess our life, therefore, we need to ask, “Is what I am doing the most important thing?”
In other words, why wait for our days to be numbered by someone or something else before we start doing what we should have been doing all along. It’s about getting our lives refocused because we only go around once in this life.
Life is not cyclical but lineal. There are no mulligans or do-overs. Once it’s done, it’s done. Once this life is over, either heaven or hell is in our futures.
Think of it like this, right now we’re all going 66,000 miles an hour. That’s how fast this world is spinning on its access. If you’d like to know how fast that is, it’s faster than the spin cycle on a washing machine.
But what if we had just a few more spins, how would we live our lives, and what would we live our lives for? Would we make them count, or would we just waste them away?
King David understood how fleeting life was, which prompted him to go on and ask God to show him how long he had left.
He said, “My life is no longer than the width of my hand. An entire lifetime is just a moment to you; human existence is but a breath.” (Psalm 39:5)
