“TO EACH ONE FORTUNATE enough to live out [this year], God will have given 365 days broken into 8,760 hours. Of these hours, 2,920 will have been spent in sleep, and about the same umber at work. An equal number has been given us to spend in reverent preparation for the moment when days and years shall cease and time shall be no more. What prayer could be more spiritually appropriate than that of Moses, the man of God: ‘Teach us to number our days, that we may apply our hearts unto wisdom’ (Psalm 90:12)?” –A.W. Tozer.
So, as the year ends, think about how you’ve spent it, what you achieved and what you failed to achieve. Use that to gather purposeful momentum towards achieving greater things and attaining greater heights in the coming year. Don’t forget to count your blessings too. Name them one by one. As you realise and praise God for all He has done, let your faith in Him rise and trust Him for better things and better days ahead.
