Time; it seems like such a precious commodity to us. We rush to and fro as if our lives depended on it. We travel on our highways as if we are in death race, darting from lane to lane. Where is everyone going in such a hurry? We live as if someone has placed an hour glass in front of us and our time is running out. It is the opposite with Almighty God. Apparently, according to the Psalmist, time means nothing to God; a thousand years goes by like nothing. When we compare our own longevity to a thousand years it is like a single drop of water in the ocean. When each day is like a thousand years patience is required. Perhaps this is why God is so patient with His creation, because He knows He has as much time as is necessary to accomplish His will for each of us. He is the creator of time so He can do as He pleases without fear of time running out for He determines when the clock stops.
Of course, just because God controls time, this in no way means that we should be careless with the time that has been given us. Once a single minute has past it is gone; irretrievable. Our time spent each day should be thoughtfully laid out. We should make the best use of our time so as not to waste it frivolously. Matthew 6:34 tells us not to worry about tomorrow … live in the present; deal with today. Tomorrow will come soon enough so slow down. Enjoy the life God has given us. That’s right; whether we believe it or not, God gave us the time we have each day. How will we spend it? We can’t horde it like some material possession. As stated, once it’s gone, it’s gone. What have we done for Christ today? Have we blessed another or lived only to bless ourselves? Stop looking at your watch and relax; take a deep breath and live … for God.
WALK WITH THE KING TODAY AND BE A BLESSING!
