A thousand years in your sight are like a day that has just gone by, or like a watch in the night. Psalm 90:4
Time has always been a mystery to people. It is something that sometimes feels like it passes quickly, while at other times it appears to move extremely slowly.
When someone is having a good time, such as on a great vacation, the time seems to move extremely fast. A family can go on a week-long vacation to Disney World. As the week comes to an end, many may be complaining that they did not get to do everything that they wanted to do, because the time went so fast.
That same family when back home and having to go to work and school, will then complain about how long the days are. This usually happens when they are doing things that they really do not want to do.
God stands outside of time, because He has always existed and always will. Since this is the case, time passes as though there was no time for God. In God’s eyes, it was just a mere two days ago that Jesus left the earth saying He would return.
Christians will often complain about wondering when Jesus will return. This is especially true during very bad times of persecution on this earth. Or when there is a prayer being asked and there seems to be no answer from God.
You must trust in God at all times. Wait on Him. God understands what time it is and what your needs are. He is waiting for the right time to answer those prayers and needs.
As a human being, you may feel that the time it is needed is right now. You are limited in time. Yet, God knows and understands your every need. He also knows how long you have on this earth. Trust Him.
Do not worry or live in fear that your needs will not be met on time. If God is patient in answering your prayer, you must also be patient. God is not in a hurry, so you must not be in a hurry or worry either.
I pray today that you will not fear God’s timing; that you will wait for God’s answer; that you will trust in God’s timing; and that God will fill you with His patience.
