My son, forget not my law or teaching, but let your heart keep my commandments; for LENGTH OF DAYS and YEARS of a life [worth living], and tranquility [inward and outward and continuing through old age till death] these SHALL THEY ADD TO YOU. (Proverb 3:1, 2 AMP)
Today I will live in the now! I will live in the now because I am walking in the kind of wisdom that adds quality years to a life lived in obedience to God. It is written: “Happy...is the man who finds skillful and godly Wisdom, and the man who gets understanding [drawing it forth from God’s word and life’s experiences]. For the gaining of it is better than the gaining of silver...and fine gold. Skillful and godly Wisdom is more precious than rubies; and nothing you can wish for is to be compared to her. LENGTH OF DAYS is in her right hand, and in her left hand are riches and honor” (Proverb 3:13-16 AMP). The wisdom of God will not just give me a long life, but a prosperous one, as well!
Today I will receive instruction and recognize good, sound advice when I hear it. It is written: “Hear, my son, and receive my sayings, and THE YEARS OF YOUR LIFE WILL BE MANY” (Proverb 4:10).
Today I will worship the Lord in reverence and awe, respecting His commandments and loving Him with all of my heart. It is written: “The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom, and the knowledge of the Holy One is understanding. For by me your DAYS WILL BE MULTIPLIED, and YEARS OF LIFE WILL BE ADDED TO YOU” (Proverb 9:10, 11).
Today I will realize the importance of this day and will invest myself in it, totally. Every day of my life is important and special and significant. I will not take the gift of this day for granted.
Today I will make the decision to be satisfied with my life as it is. “With LONG LIFE I will SATISFY him, and show him my salvation” (Psalm 91:16). There is great confidence that comes from a life of contentment without complacency, so I will walk in that confidence by an act of my will. Life is good! God is good! Today is good!
Today I will make the effort to walk in health and safety. The name of sickness, disease, accident, calamity or any other potentially life-threatening thing must bow to the name of Jesus!
Today I will celebrate all that life has to offer, acknowledging in all my ways the God Who adds years to mine. Today I will LIVE, and today I will live in the now!
Father, help me to keep Your commandments today.
In Jesus’ name, amen.
