Thought for the Lord’s Day

Posted on March 7, 2015 · Posted in Authority

Who controls time?

By an act of Congress our clocks are adjusted by an hour twice a year. By the will of the Lord of the Universe all time proceeds just as he has planned. Your God is never perplexed about time, never worries about being late, everything always happens at the exact second he has planned.

Your God tells you not to worry. Time belongs to him, he created it. One day time will be no more! How cool is that?

Take comfort that your God rules time. You can trust what he controls.

Hear what the Holy Spirit says about how intimately God is involved in the time of your life.
A thousand years in your sight
are like a day that has just gone by,
or like a watch in the night.
Psalm 90:4

Your eyes saw my unformed body;
all the days ordained for me were written in your book
before one of them came to be.
Psalm 139:16

25 Who of you by worrying can add a single hour to your life? 26 Since you cannot do this very little thing, why do you worry about the rest?
Luke 12:25-26

“I am the Alpha and the Omega, the first and the last, the beginning and the end.”
Revelation 22:13
