The Gift of Today - Joel Osteen Ministries daily devotion 12 July Wednesday
"Teach us to number our days, that we may gain a heart of wisdom." (Psalm 90:12, NIV)
The Gift of Today
our days can be so full and busy that we forget how precious and
fragile our time on earth really is. It can be so easy to allow little
things to creep in and steal our peace and joy. Maybe something didn’t
go your way, or someone said something upsetting. Even traffic can cause
us to get our focus off if we let it. But, we have to remember that
each day is a gift. If we choose to focus on what’s wrong, we’ll miss
out on the beauty that each day has to offer.
encourage you today; don’t let the precious moments of life pass you
by. Don’t wait for holidays and birthdays to show people that you care.
Remember, each day is unique and irreplaceable, a gift from heaven
above. You have been given time that can be invested or wasted, hours
that can be used or misused. That’s why the psalmist prayed to God,
“Teach us to number our days.” He was saying, “Teach us to value every
moment we’ve been given so we can live a life pleasing to You.”
A Prayer for Today
Father, thank You for the gift of today. I choose to focus on the
blessing of each moment instead of allowing the little things to steal
my joy. Keep me close to You always as I submit every area of my heart
and mind to You in Jesus’ name. Amen."
