In this humanistic world of today, we would do well to remember our Creator. For, “In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth” (Genesis 1:1), and, “God created man in his own image, in the image of God he created him; male and female he created them” (Genesis 1:27). We’re here under God’s sovereignty.
There is a belief, however, that we can focus on God later in life, as we age and when we are finished with our own agendas. But it is foolish to put God off until sometime later. Consider Solomon’s advice: “Remember your Creator in the days of your youth, before the days of trouble come and the years approach when you will say "I find no pleasure in them’” (Ecclesiastes 12:1). Solomon goes on to list the debilitating effects of aging and injuries that are a part of man’s life on earth. We need God throughout our lives, from the womb to the tomb, not just when we are finished with our own plans.
Now is the time to remember your Creator; not someday, later, whenever, when it is convenient or when it feels right. Remember your Creator in the days of your youth; today, now and forever.
