Unlike things in this world which come and go, the Lord God is forever. He is the God “is the same, yesterday, today, and forever” (Hebrews 13:8).
Sometimes, we may have a hard time grasping that thought. It is revelation from God who has an infinite mind to us who have a finite mind. But one day, if we trust in Him and live for Him, we too will have an infinite mind and understand all Godly things! Isn’t that something worth having?
If you’re like me, waiting on something is often difficult. We live in an instant world, built on a foundation of instant gratification. Things must happen or get resolved, and it has to happen NOW! This is especially true when we are in “crisis mode.”
But time is a different concept to the Lord. With Him, a day is like a thousand years, and a thousand years is like a day. (2 Peter 3:8). In this context, the Lord is talking about the time it takes for people to come to Him and His grace. He is patient with us, longsuffering, but not wishing for anyone to perish.
We need to learn this virtue of patience and apply it to the things in our lives. God is with us, watching out for us. That never changes. We must hold on to that thought as we hold on during a difficult challenge in life. He has plans which must be fulfilled and if that involves some discomfort or trial with us, we must let it be. God’s will is first, and it all works for our benefit if we truly love Him…
“Then they will go away to eternal punishment, but the righteous to eternal life.”
There will be a day, and it will be so glorious! A day when everyone who has ever lived, great and small, will stand before the Lord and confess His name. Will you make the decision to praise Him now, or will it be then?
Who says rock music is all bad! These tunes tell stories of love and devotion to a Lord God Almighty…now what’s wrong in that? Enjoy the music for the praise in song and pray today to the Lord for the blessings in your life!
