Are you making the most of the moments that God has given you?

2 Kings 20:1

"In those days Hezekiah was sick and near death. And Isaiah the prophet, the son of Amoz, went to him and said to him, "Thus says the LORD: 'Set your house in order, for you shall die, and not live.'" NKJV

What if God told you that you were going to die? People every day are informed by doctors and juries they have only years, months, days, or even moments left to live. Those could be moments of regret or moments of satisfaction... it all depends on what we 'make' of the moments God allots to us. Make? Yes, God has given to each one of us creativity, time, a sense of right and wrong, and free will. What we do with these raw materials is up to us. Most of us dole out the moments on frivolous, self-centered activities. Sometimes, it takes moments of shock to make us change course.

Do something for the Lord or do something for the world? The first is a path leading to satisfaction and the latter is a highway leading to regret. It has been said, "Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but by the moments that take our breath away." Life is much more than just a measure of our days. It is what we do for the Lord and that, my friend, will last forever. What if God told you that you were going to die? Well... He has.

Hebrews 9:27: "And as it is appointed for men to die once, but after this the judgment," NKJV

What are you doing with your moments? Are they going to last?

Life Lesson: There are things worse than death.

Dear God,
Thank You for Your love. Thank You for the moments You have given to me. Please forgive me for times when I have selfishly squandered those moments. Please give me the courage to make the most of the time and abilities You have given me. In Jesus' name, Amen.
