(A Joint Devotional from the writers of Sons and Daughters of the King Daily Devotionals)
“My times are in Your hands; deliver me from my enemies and from those who pursue me” Psalm 31:15, Berean Study Bible.
Bernard: The days we are in, they are precious. We won’t get them back.
Kesha: Yes, I keep hearing the words “time” and “precious.” I keep hearing God say this is a precious time in your life; don’t just let it blow by you. Just like when we were in college and when we were dating, we look back at those days and say to ourselves, that was a precious time in our lives.
Bernard: Yes, when we realize how precious those days were, we realize how precious these days are that we’re in now. You may not have maximized last year, but you can maximize this year. You may not have maximized yesterday, but you can maximize today. The plans, the dreams, the inklings of what can be, decide to do them. Do it for God, do it for the lost, do it for yourself because one day there will be no more time left.
Prayer: Father, we thank you for speaking to both your sons and your daughters. This time is precious for your people, Lord. We pray that you help us to realize how precious these days are and maximize them. Together, we receive your grace and your power to make an impact in this world for your glory. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
