"Number our days" - what does this mean? Surely, it means that our life on earth will come to an end. How long will my life be? I don't know the answer to this question. How long will your life be? You don't know the answer to this question. "A heart of wisdom" - what does this mean? A lot more could be said about this, but, here, we say just one thing - it's about learning to live in the light of eternity.
2 Samuel 7:1-29 Life isn't easy. Sometimes, it seems like there are nothing but hard times. There doesn't seem to be alight at the end of the tunnel. That's the way it feels - but it's not the way it is! Our feelings will lead us away from You - if we let them! Our feelings can run riot over us. They can wreck our lives. Help us, Lord, to look beyond the chaos. Help us to look to You. Sometimes, it feels like You're far away. That's the way it seems to us - but it's not the way it really is! You are with us - now and always (Matthew 1:23; Matthew 28:20).
