Some Days Are Credited While Others Discounted.
“So teach us to number our days, that we may get us a heart of wisdom.” Psalm 90:12
Reckoned on the calendar, the days we live are easily tallied up, since a day can be measured and so can a year. But reckoned according to God’s valuation, some days are credited while others may be discounted. It appears that in the Bible some days go unrecorded, perhaps because God has looked upon them as wasted days, devoid of meaning for him.
The day you receive the salvation of the Lord is the day you begin your spiritual history. Life, for you, starts then. Before that moment you really have no spiritual days to be credited in the timescale of God. Even after you have believed in him, it is not certain that each day or year necessarily counts. Tell me, have you never wasted a day? Our calendar days are so few! How precious is everyone! We need to learn how we can number them so that our every day and every year gives him pleasure.
