This is an evil in all that is done under the sun: there is one fate for everyone. In addition, the hearts of people are full of evil, and madness is in their hearts while they live – after that they go to the dead. Ecclesiastes 9:3 HCSB
There is one sure thing in life – everyone is going to die. We don’t know when we will die, but death is a certainty for everyone. Only God knows the days of our lives. Psalm 139:16 says, “ All the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be.” God is in control; He has a plan for each of our lives.
Solomon referred to death as an “evil”. He also saw the hearts of people as evil because they are filled with madness, foolishness, and insanity. Each of us is given a certain number of days to live. God is so in control that we will not live a day longer or shorter than what God has planned for us. The question is, “How will we use the days He has given us here on earth?” God knows what is best and has a perfect plan, but it is our choice to follow or reject Him and His plan for our lives.
Challenge: God is interested in details. He is interested in your life and its every detail. He knows the valleys and mountain top experiences of your life and He will be with you in every event if you will only yield to His plan for you. How will you use the time God has given you?
