“Before the mountains were born, before you gave birth to the earth and the world, from beginning to end, you are God.” “For you, a thousand years are as a passing day, as brief as a few night hours.” - Psalm 90:2,4 New Living Translation
The 90th Psalm is a prayer written by Moses. That would make this Psalm the oldest one on record. In it Moses reminds us that time is completely irrelevant to the Lord. Meaning, of course, that he is in no way limited by it.
Being mortal, we get discouraged when we have to wait for things, such as answers to prayers or the circumstances of our life to improve. At times we may wonder if God is paying attention. Understanding that each day we live is like a speck of sand in the hour glass of time should help us grasp this important fact: we aren’t asked or told by God to do anything but trust him. Scripture is riddled with verses that speak on the topic of the Lord knowing what we are in need of and how he is more than capable of meeting each and every need we may have. God is an infinite spirit being with no beginning or end. He is the great I AM. He simply ‘is’.
Once we have digested that concept we can begin to accept the idea that things will take place according to God’s perfect will for our life and not a moment sooner. What we receive and when we receive it will be when the Lord knows we need it the most. Trust God. He’s never failed to do that which he has promised to do in his word. Until next time, walk with the King and be a blessing!
