God plans and knows the number of our days!

In what sense has God numbered our days? Has He really set the date in stone? Does He know the day when we will die?

God has numbered our days in the sense that He is the Giver and the Taker of life, as seen in Job 1:21, “…Naked I came from my mother’s womb, and naked shall I return there. The Lord gave, and the Lord has taken away…” Notice the conclusion of this verse, “…Blessed be the name of the Lord.” We can praise the Lord that He knows all things, knows all about us, and this includes the day of our death.

God knows His plan for us, from beginning to end. He does record our existence and has predestined the day of our death. Notice Psalm 139:16 as the psalmist says of God, “Your eyes saw my substance, being yet unformed. And in Your book they all were written , the days fashioned for me, when as yet there were none of them.” This verse shows that God “saw” us or knew of us before we were conceived in our mother’s womb and our existence is written in His “book”…it may be a “stone” book, but we can’t be sure. We do know that God is omniscient (all-knowing) and has set the date of our conception, birth, death, along with knowing all the days in-between. He is an awesome God!

Christian's unanimous agree that God does control mortality.  The monotheistic belief of Christians at large would indicate that God gives life at conception and gives eternal life at death to those who believe in Jesus Christ and have put their faith in Him in their earthly life.

The Scripture tells us that Christ warned: "My time is not yet come: but your time is always ready." John 7:6.

Jesus told the story of the rich fool, who had a bumper crop come in, which he greedily wanted to build bigger storage barns to keep. He didn't care about helping others, nor to be "rich toward God." Christ related: "God said unto him, Thou fool, this night thy soul shall be required of thee: then whose shall those things be, which thou hast provided?", to which He concluded: "So is he that layeth up treasure for himself, and is not rich toward God." Luke 12:20,21.

Job had all his wealth, his children and his health taken away, but God refused to allow Satan to take his life. Satan accused Job: "But put forth thine hand now, and touch his bone and his flesh, and he will curse thee to thy face." God answered: "And the LORD said unto Satan, Behold, he is in thine hand; but save his life." Job 2:5,6. Christian believers see this as God's complete control of our mortality.

King David had said: "Thou hast possessed my reins: thou hast covered me in my mother's womb." And: " I will praise thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made: marvelous are thy works; and that my soul knoweth right well. My substance was not hid from thee, when I was made in secret, and curiously wrought in the lowest parts of the earth. Thine eyes did see my substance, yet being unperfect; and in thy book all my members were written, which in continuance were fashioned, when as yet there was none of them." Psalm 139:13-16. He indicated his confidence that God was in control of his life from before conception.

Many consider Moses to be wise in saying: "For all our days are passed away in thy wrath: we spend our years as a tale that is told. The days of our years are threescore years and ten; and if by reason of strength they be fourscore years, yet is their strength labor and sorrow; for it is soon cut off, and we fly away. Who knoweth the power of thine anger? even according to thy fear, so is thy wrath. So teach us to number our days, that we may apply our hearts unto wisdom." Psalm 90:9-12.


Isaiah 38:5 (NASB) [Isaiah]"Go and say to Hezekiah, 'Thus says the Lord, the God of your father David," I have heard your prayer, I have seen your tears; behold, I will add fifteen years to your life. Jehovah-Elohim added 15 years to Hezekiah's life.
And of course Paul writing to the Corinthians wrote in, "1 Corinthians 15:54 "But when this perishable will have put on the imperishable, and this mortal will have put on immortality, then will come about the saying that is written, "Death is swallowed up in victory [Jesus Christ. verse 57]"

The angel of the Lord killed 185,000 men in one night. (1 Kings 19:35, Isaiah 37:36) Ananias and Sapphira were killed by the Holy Spirit in Acts 5. James 5:20 (NASB) "let him know that he who turns a sinner from the error of his way will save his soul from death." Sin is a grievance against God, It is assumed that God can kill sinners.
Be reminded that God also knows of our “life after death”, be it heaven or hell. He gives us the opportunity to prepare for our eternity through personal faith in His Son, Jesus Christ. In the midst of God’s providential plan, He has allowed for “choice”. Each human being has the option of choosing their eternal destiny by responding to God’s love. Notice John 3:16, “For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.” Therefore, with the question of God’s of us answered, the question remains…has the “day” come when you made peace with our Creator, God, through personal faith in Jesus Christ? If not, you can get right with God today.

As Christians, we can understand that the Bible declares an all-knowing God and that our “days” are known to Him. But, what do we do with that understanding? Not knowing how many days we have left, we are to live each day as if it’s our last day on earth. This means spending each day wisely and acknowledging the Lord each day, i.e. spending time in prayer, in God’s Word, in worship of Him, in serving Him, in loving others, and in making a positive impact on our generation for Him! This is reflected in Psalm 90 with truths like, from (v. 1) …from everlasting to everlasting, You are God…”, from (v.12) – “…so teach us to number our days, that we may gain a heart of wisdom…”, and, from (v. 17) “And let the beauty of the Lord our God be upon us, and establish the work of our hands for us; yes, establish the work of our hands.”

May God bless you as you spend your life wisely for Him!
