Days that Speak to Us
Psalm 90:9,10,12; Job 32:7
We find in the Book of Job a young man by the name Elihu speaking. Even though Elihu was a young man, as you read his words, he had great insight and great wisdom. He said; "Days should speak, and multitude of years should teach wisdom."
Now our 'days' have a word for us. Our 'days' have a message for us; and I believe that our 'days' are a sermon for those who have ears to hear.

When we think about Yesterday, we are thinking about the day that we just came through. It is a day that we will never see again. We cannot relive it. (Yesterday says; "Learn from me".) There are some things that we can learn from yesterday.
