A Day is Like a Thousand Years

Updated: Sep 27, 2022

How’s your day going? You may read this “exactly” the moment it is posted, but for one person, the time is nine hours in the future and another two hours in the past. So how you answer depends on your perspective of time…that single grain of sand released in the cosmic hourglass...that moment in time we call “NOW.”

So Albert Einstein was right; time is relative. Time is also deeply personal and a gift from God. So what do you do with it as your day is “going” along?

Think about your schedule for today. In that long list of “must-do” items, where is “God’s Time” scheduled? Is it the first thing? Is it during lunch break? Is it in that final moment separating waking life from dreamland?

Perhaps God’s Time has become so vital that it is integrated into every moment regardless of your actions. If so, I’m confident you will receive your reward.

Sadly, “God’s Time” isn’t scheduled in the daily planner for many. Instead, it’s in the “as time permits” category and buying a new pair of sox. I get are a busy person. But will God understand when your hourglass is empty?

The Apostle Peter said,

“but do not forget this one thing, dear friends: with the Lord, a day is like a thousand years, and a thousand years are like a day. The Lord is not slow in keeping his promise, as some understand slowness. He is patient with you, not wanting anyone to perish but everyone to come to repentance. But the day of the Lord will come like a thief. The heavens will disappear with a roar; the elements will be destroyed by fire, and the earth and everything in it will be laid bare.” 2 Peter 3:8-10

Isn’t it time to make God an integral part of our daily schedule? If we do, the answer to my question, “How’s your day going?” will always be the same….” Blessed beyond my wildest dreams.” That’s my prayer for you. While here, look at “What Does Psalm 113:2-3 Teach Us About Praise and Worship?
