Number Our Days

Psalm 90:12
So teach us to number our days, that we may apply our hearts unto wisdom.

Proverbs 14:33
Wisdom rests in the heart of one who has understanding.

Philippians 4: 8
Finally brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.

Applying our hearts to wisdom requires a heart of understanding.... but can that foundation be set if we close ourselves to the words of our Lord ? It comes down to what we fill our time with, or put another way, how we number our days. He will teach us how to number them to gain wisdom, if we're open to Him. Today's step is to number our days well, so we may gain understanding which forms the foundation of wisdom.

Patient Waiting

2 Thessalonians 3:4-5
And we have confidence in the Lord touching you, that ye both do and will do the things which we command you. And the Lord direct your hearts into the love of God, and into the patient waiting for Christ.

To direct our hearts into the love of God, is an act of our will. We direct our hearts and we wait patiently for the return of Jesus. Today's step is to choose to turn our hearts to Him.
