We are Not on God’s Time

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.

Repentance

The greatest word that can change your world and life is “Repent”.

The worst that this world can do to you does not compare with what God has for you!

Jesus said He would deliver you out of all trouble (Ps. 34:17, 34:19, Rom. 8:18), but to start you must repent and give your life to Jesus.

Embrace repentance.

America?

Lord God, You gave us this great land and forged a strong chain attached to the anchor of Your “word”; it held on to the rock of Your Presence for many years.

But through the years the enemy has come in and worn away the links of the chain that holds fast to Your word.  The chain weakened and now we are adrift on a sea of sin.  The chain is not broken yet but is very weak.

Lord, raise up someone strong and with integrity for Your word!  Give them the strength to restore the chain of Your word that holds this nation together in Your way and commandments.  Let us return to You with all our hearts and souls.
