Last week we concluded that sin prevents all people from living out a preset number of days.  Romans 6:23  For the
wages of sin is death, …  Romans 3:23  All have sinned and fallen short of Gods glory.

This week, let’s read 2 of 3 scriptures that confuse many Christians.

Job 14:5  Man’s days are determined;  you have decreed the number of his months and have set limits
he cannot exceed.

Here, Job is considering the shortness of man’s (mankind’s) life.  Every man of Adam’s fallen race is short lived.
God has determined the boundaries beyond which mankind cannot go.  As we have read in Number of Days 1 the
limit is a hundred and twenty years.  Job is not saying that each individual has an exact preset number of days to
live.

Psalms 139:16  Your eyes saw my unformed body;  all the days ordained for me were written in your
book before one of them came to be. 

Reading more closely, this is a Psalm of David.  It is speaking about David’s life and that God has a predetermined
plan for David’s life.  This Psalm is not speaking to mankind in general.

David is most famous for killing Goliath with a sling and stone.  David became a successful army commander and
was the second King of Isreal.

As we have read in Mission 7, there are only a few people in the history of the world that God prepared a specific
plan.  David was one of them.  To determine how you can best serve God, click on Mission on the left side of this

Next week we will read a third scripture that confuses Christians concerning a preset number of days.

Thank you so much for reading.  God bless.
