Scriptural Readings: Psalms 46:10
To deal with time is not easy. It is a common headache for everyone. Time tell us to stop and when to go and as always time tells us we are in deep trouble. The problem with us today is that time has become our master and we are the follower.
One might argue that we cannot do anything about it. It is beyond one’s capacity to totally take control of our own time. It is impossible to save time and sooner or later we are going to lose it. There is no such thing as perfect timing. We could have started with the right things but will end up miserable at the end. Time will always be lost and it is very seldom on our side.
Yes, a lot of us will agree. Right? Guess what? This is actually the time that we over looked. It is the wasted time not the lost time. Once we got frustrated with the time we wasted for nothing, we stop, think and ponder and ask what happened and why we wasted those time and now we need more time desperately. We can never turn back the hands of time but as Christians we should bring Him back all the glory and praise with our time.
Be still, and know that I [am] God: I will be exalted among the heathen, I will be exalted in the earth.
God is patiently waiting for us to call on Him. Once we ran out of time because we wasted it, this is the time that we call upon His name and rescue us. Our God will always be a father to us. This is where time stops. We are so desperate for answers that we lost track of time praying. We do not care of the time just as long that we will be having answers for our prayers and as a result, we will be asking for more time.
For God, time is forever and we need to learn what everlasting is all about. We have to be still and listen to Him and know that He is God. Time stops when God tells us something. This is the time that we should stop and listen to Him. Sure thing every second will pass by but if we are going to use time for Him it is not losing neither wasting. We are gaining.
The bottom line for this is that we do not have the luxury of time. We do not even own our time at all. The truth is we only have a borrowed time. A certain time. Our time here on earth is limited. God holds our time and it should be devoted for Him, for His glorification. God will not allow us to spend eternity in hell so He sent Jesus His son to bring us back to everlasting relationship with our God. This is the true meaning and value of time. Spending eternity with our God!
Our Father in heaven, grant us the wisdom on how to use this time for You. Let Your Holy Spirit teach us on how to spend every second for Your glorification that our life would be the reflection of Your Son Jesus. We claim these promises through Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior. Amen!
