From Monday, March 29, 2021.
It's hard to believe by the end of this week we will be three days into a new month. Mom always said "the older you get the faster time goes." Wow, was she right! Days, months and now years seem to fly by with hardly a blink of the eye. Time is very tricky.
2 Peter 3:8 talks about God-time. God does not keep time the same way we do. "But do not overlook this one fact, beloved, that with the Lord one day is as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day."
It is very hard for my little brain to wrap around the idea that God has always existed. Think about it...that is not just millions of years or billions, or trillions of years or any of the many words describing time, ending in "illion". It is eternity in reverse.
Psalm 90:2 ESV "Before the mountains were brought forth, or ever you had formed the earth and the world, from everlasting to everlasting you are God."
Psalm 93:2 "Your throne is established from of old; you are from everlasting."
Humans might live to 100 years old if we are lucky, but that is nothing in God-time. And yet God chose us! Jesus chose us! He died for our sins. He wants to be our Savior but He also desires to be our friend. He wants us to live with Him and reign with Him! What an amazing thought! How special we must be in His sight.
Psalm 8:4-9 says "what is man that you are mindful of him, and the son of man that you care for him? Yet you have made him a little lower than the heavenly beings and crowned him with glory and honor. You have given him dominion over the works of your hands; you have put all things under his feet, all sheep and oxen, also the beasts of the field, the birds of the heavens, and the fish of the sea, whatever passes along the paths of the sea. O Lord, our Lord, how majestic is Your name in all the earth!"
Friends, Jesus is coming soon. Many, many prophesies have been fulfilled. We live in very troubling, odd times. The signs are all around us, if we would just look up and see.
Jesus is coming soon! Are you ready to greet Him? Are you ready to meet Him? Are you ready to live for eternity in perfect harmony?
I pray those reading this right now, have given their hearts and lives to Jesus and if you have not, why not do that today? He loves you and desires to have you with Him.
May God richly bless you, guard and protect you.
