There Are No Time Constraints With God

I haven’t done a Blog in a while, and I got to thinking recently:  Does it seem to you that time goes faster? I remember hearing the phrase ‘the older you get, the faster time goes by’. I think it’s true.

We recently visited our daughter and grandkids some eight hours from us. We got to spend several days with them and enjoyed our time together. Even though our grandkids are more like young adults, it’s surprising that they’re already in their late teens and early 20’s!  What? How can that be? The days of them being little kids are long gone. They’re much taller than their Grandma now, (probably smarter, too), and they’re able to do many new things I couldn’t even imagine when I was their age. Indeed, the older you get, the faster time goes by!

Yet even though we see time, days/months, change our lives and go by quickly, we know there are no time constraints with our God. He’s the same yesterday, today, and forever (Hebrews 13:8). He sees the beginning and the ending. He doesn’t get nervous, even when we do, as a man-made deadline draws closer. He is always constant. We, on the other hand, get fidgety and nervous especially if it looks like we can’t meet the deadlines ahead. Whether you’re young, old, or somewhere in between, don’t let the deadlines, the negative things that come against you sidetrack you from trusting Him. You may not be able to see ahead too far, but know the Lord is guiding and directing you, and has better things ahead (Jeremiah 29:11).

Here’s where faith comes in, and a reminder of where our trust and reliance must be: in God who is always faithful. No matter if it’s today or tomorrow, He will bring you through whatever tough times there are and get you to the finish line. Be encouraged because He loves YOU!

“Teach us to number our days, that we may gain a heart of wisdom.”
Psalm 90:12 NIV
