How should we view our lives? How important are our lives in the scope of eternity? Another question i would like to ask is how do we view our lives?
Our lives are important but at the same time how we view our lives can determine how we move forward in what God has called us to do.
For a long time i have seen my life as precious and fragile. I have been careful with myself in a lot of things. But i read something a few days ago that changed how i view my life forever. I seen the way God sees my life. The way we see our lives is irrelevant. Instead we should seek to see our lives through the eyes of God. So let me show you how God sees us and our lives:
As a father loves and pities His children, so the Lord loves and pities those who fear Him [with reverance, worship, and awe].
For He knows our frame, He [earnestly] remembers and imprints [on His heart] that we are dust.
As for man, his days are as grass; as a flower of the field, so he flourishes.
For the wind passes over it and it is gone and its place shall know it no more. Proverbs 103:13-16
That is the way God sees our lives. Our lves in the scope of eternity is only but a second! What are we doing with that “second”that will last into eternity? The problem i was having was this, i thought i had lots of time. I thought i had all the time in the world. But our lives are like a flower, here today gone tomorrow. We need to make that “second” count. What is 80 or 90 or even 120 years in the scope of eternity? It is but a second!
There is no time to waste people. You need to get on with what God has called you to do. If you know your calling then get going. If you don’t know what you called to do then seek God and ask Him. He will show you what it is, then get going.
When we view our lives as important and fragile we tend to be very careful in all that we do. We may even begin to procrastinate and become lazy because we think we have all the time in the world. But that’s not true. Our lives are fleeting. It’s like a flower. Here today and gone tomorrow with no proof of it’s exsistence. The things that will stay are the things that God has called us to do. But there is something else, we may not even see a completion of all God has called us to be in our lifetimes. Our children will have to carry it on. Are you building something that will last generations? But that is a subject for another day.
What i am speaking to you about is for me as well. I need this principle to be a part of me. I have been challenged by what God has spoken to me about and i hope you have been challenged as well. Just remember, your life is like a flower which is here today but gone tomorrow. Are you going to do something with your life that will change your world or THE whole world?
