We're on God's time
What exactly is time? Think about it for a moment. The concept of it just blows me away. You can’t stop it or even alter it. Once “time” happens, you can’t go back, although it’s etched into your memory. Now, this is awesome: GOD is almighty! HE created the universe and everything in it. HE created time. Wow. Having created time, that would mean that at one point their was no time? And HE is outside of time. GOD is not limited by time. What a mighty GOD we serve!
Now we on the other hand, as humans are effected by time. We determine everything we do by time. I’m always saying, “I wish I had more time in the day to do stuff.” I’ve found that too often I mismanage my time and put off things that I shouldn’t. I blame it on not enough time. Really though, GOD has given me all the time I need. To think that GOD would give you more to do than time will allow!(note to self: never second guess GOD / HE is smarter than me).
I’ve found that lately I haven’t had “time” to read my bible. The real fact of the matter is that I just haven’t taken the time to do it. We need to be real careful not to let the things of this world take up so much of our time that we put GOD on our “B” list. That also includes the things GOD has granted us, because don’t forget, we serve a jealous GOD (Exodus 20:3-6), and what HE’s blessed us with, HE can easily take back.
If any of this applies to you then please join me in this prayer:
LORD GOD, thank you for giving me this time on earth. Give me the wisdom to use it wisely and the desire to live my life fully for your glory. Lord, I want you to be on my “A” list, first and foremost. Thank you and Amen.
One last thing to think about: As Christians we are on the clock 24/7.
