“This is the day which the Lord has made;
Let us rejoice and be glad in it.” Psalm 118:24
It is so crucial to recognize or better put to acknowledge the days and seasons in which we live. This is very important especially for us who are new born believers. Otherwise we’ll become numb! And the next stage is conforming ourselves in tradition. Tradition is not the key to growth-as many believe. And I am not talking about traditions that we have all heard of or have been part of before we got saved. I am talking about the subtle way of how our revelations and understanding of certain aspects can easily turn into traditions. We must be careful not то impose our revelations about how to live godly life on others. What we ought to realize is that our revelation is just an aspect but not the entire heart of God. We need to encourage others to gain maturity in being close with God. Being totally submissive to the Holy Spirit is a prerogative-or should be. Each one of us should develop an intimate relationship with the Holy Spirit. In doing so, we will gain for sure a deeper and clearer perspective about others. Our revelation about the righteousness of Christ in us will help us to be sharp and seek this righteousness in people around us.
When Paul the apostle was exhorting the believers to use the time wisely, he was encouraging them to submit to the leadership of the Holy Spirit…so they can use the opportunity to bring heaven here on earth according to what they have seen in the Spirit. That is so powerful!
As it’s written in one of the psalms: “So teach us to number our days,
That we may cultivate a heart of wisdom”(Psalm 90:12)
