Let us not be found wanting

Daniel 5:25-28  And this is the writing that was written, MENE, MENE, TEKEL, UPHARSIN. This is the interpretation of the thing: MENE; God hath numbered thy kingdom, and finished it. TEKEL; Thou art weighed in the balances, and art found wanting. PERES; Thy kingdom is divided, and given to the Medes and Persians.

Daniel, chapter 5, brings a few thoughts to mind:

  1. The king’s kingdom was numbered and finished.  I need to pray   Psalms 90:12  So teach us to number our days, that we may apply our hearts unto wisdom.
  2. The king was weighed in the balances and found wanting.  As a lost individual, one is always found wanting.  He can never measure up to God’s holiness. Romans 3:23  For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;
  3. As a saved individual I am reminded of these promises:
    • Psalms 23:1  <<A Psalm of David.>> The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want.
    • Psalms 34:9-10  O fear the LORD, ye his saints: for there is no want to them that fear him. The young lions do lack, and suffer hunger: but they that seek the LORD shall not want any good thing.
    • James 1:4  But let patience have her perfect work, that ye may be perfect and entire, wanting nothing.

Are you wanting today? 

  • Turn to Christ.  He can cleanse your heart and make you whole and satisfy your soul.
  • He can make you realize that your days on earth are numbered and will soon be finished; that you need to apply our hearts to wisdom.  Psalms 111:10  The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom: a good understanding have all they that do his commandments: his praise endureth for ever.
