May is the month of counting down. My granddaughter has two more days of preschool before graduation. All students are counting the days until summer vacation. Some are looking ahead to their graduations with anticipation.

Others are counting the days before their wedding. Will they get everything done in time? Will the weather cooperate?

Workers count the days until their vacation or the next 3 day weekend. The people of Israel counted the days until the prophecies against their enemies came to pass.

Isaiah 21:16, “The Lord said to me, ‘Within a year, counting each day…'” New Living Translation

“21:16…as a servant bound by contract would count it…” New Living Translation Bible Notes

The Bible tells us when Israel becomes a nation to look for Jesus’ return. Are you counting the days?

Dear Father God,

I look forward to hearing the trumpet sound and Your return to earth. Forgive me for wasting even one hour of the few days we have left.

In Jesus Name,
