The scriptures say that – with the Lord – one day is as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day. (2 Peter 3:8)
If this is the case, one day of time for us is only .14 hundredths of a second in God’s eyes – just a blink of an eye.
So when we pray and ask God to heal us or answer a certain prayer and it seems to take a long, long time remember – if He answered in just one second of His time, it would be approximately 8-1/2 days for us in our time. If He took one minute, it would be 510 days!
That is why, when we pray, we should ask that His will be done in His time – not ours – because in faith, with patience, we wait upon the Lord. Time is not the same to God as it is to us; all things will come in their season.
