In the Blink of an Eye

Posted on: 7-15-112017

“Dear friends, don’t overlook this one fact: With the Lord one day is like a thousand years and a thousand years is like one day.” 2 Peter 3:8

Most of us are familiar with this verse, but if you’re like me, you probably notice the first part more than the second. We can feel like waiting on the Lord to do something takes forever! We want Him to do everything on our timeline, and are not very patient when it doesn’t happen that way. We relate to His “one day” equaling a thousand years because we feel each day that we are waiting for Him to respond to us is the equivalent of a thousand years.  What we forget is that His “thousand years” can be just a day. God is so mighty, so powerful, so beyond what we can fathom that He can also accomplish in one day what it would take anyone else a thousand years to do. We need to always be expectantly awaiting God’s work in our lives. Even when it seems like it’s taking a thousand years, we have to hold on and trust that He is at work because we never know when He will show up and do the miraculous in the blink of an eye!
