Scriptural Readings Genesis 1:4-5, Ecclesiastes 3, Luke 12: 19-20
Time is important. I think that there is no point of argument on this statement. All of us follow a time frame including God. There is a culmination for everything. 24 hours seem to be short and we need more. Why do people need more time? There are also people who have all the time in the world.
When God divided the light, He called the light day and the darkness He called night (Genesis 1:4-5). This is one day. Is it 24 hours? What is the importance, involvement and the consequences of these for all of us? Why do we have to know the answer to all these things?
A day is always ahead of us. What does it mean? It means that we have to be open and be well aware for His instructions, blessings or may be something else. This day is not ours to own. A day was made because He has a purpose for this(Ecclesiastes 3). The problem is that we are always occupied with what we have to do for a single day. Most of the time we never ask what is His will for us for that day or a particular day and that is why we always get into trouble. We tend to think more of ourselves instead of Him and this is why we are defeated with just one day of worries, loneliness and all emotional downsides. Time framed us instead of framing our time for Him. Our days are numbered and we should be wise living our lives by turning our focus and the whole of our spirit, soul and body to the day for our Lord and savior Jesus Christ. We should always think that our time is always up.This kind of attitude will bring us closer to Him who made the day and who made us. Again we do not hold our time (Luke 12: 19-20) and let God handle our time.
God prepared a new heaven and earth so there is a time that all things will pass away and new things will come. The time that we invested just for the personal reason outside God’s intervention is just a waste of time. Our time is up. We have to let God operate every second of our time to Him in exchange for eternity.
Heavenly Father, choosing our time to spend without you is a total waste of time. Let your appointed time be upon us that we might continue the true meaning of our lives. Make this time available to us in no time. In Jesus name we pray. Amen.
