Daily Cross Walk Devotional: All Your Days


Daily Cross Walk Devotional: All Your Days

“Thine eyes saw my unformed body. All the years destined for me were written in your book before one of them came to be” (Psalm 139:16).

Last month, my family was saddened to hear the news of a friend who suffered a premature and tragic death. A believer in Christ, he had struggled with dementia for years.

At the funeral, the pastor read this verse from the Psalms:

“Thine eyes saw my unformed body. All the years destined for me were written in your book before one of them came to be” (Psalm 139:16).

What a reassuring and serene reminder that there is nothing we can do to increase or reduce our days. How particularly powerful those words are for anyone who has lost a precious one “too young.”

Before you were given birth to, the lord knew the number of days you would dwell on this earth. How absurd is that thought? Though situations and their timing don’t always make sense, we can trust that God, in his eternal wisdom, has written in His book a grand master plan.

As He reminds us in Isaiah 55:8-9: “’For My thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways,’ says the LORD. As the heavenly abode is greater than the earth, so my conducts greater than yours and my point of view than your yours.

No death is a shock to God, nor is any death out of the control of His will. Though none of us know in advance how long we will live, we do know that the Lord is with us from the beginning until our last breath and then for all eternity for those who have put their trust in Him as Deliverer.

Let us never distrust the importance and impact of any life no matter how short for God has ordained all of our days for His purpose.

Intersecting Faith & Life: Take a minute to reflect the words of Psalm 139:16 – a testament to the holy power and knowledge of God. Though life and death is a mystery to us, it isn’t to God. Let us all endeavor to serve and live for Him today and every day, so whether we meet the Lord tomorrow or in 50 years, we will be ready when our time comes.
