This is post 1000! Thanks so much for your encouragement and support for us through these past 4 years!
A thousand can seem like a big number. Having a thousand dollars is a basic emergency fund, according to Dave Ramsey. If you weigh a thousand pounds you will lock in a spot on one of those weight loss shows. A thousand miles is a long road trip.
What about a thousand years? From today that would be the year 3020. But for God a thousand years is nothing. God is outside of space, time, and matter, so the things that limit us don’t phase Him.
For a thousand years in your sight are but as yesterday when it is past, or as a watch in the night.
God’s frame of reference is such that whether it is 1,000 years or 10 seconds, they are the same to Him. He promised the coming of Jesus, but Genesis to Matthew took thousands of years! To man, that was an eternity, for God it was the same as a few days. The same is true for the end of the world, God promised it 2,000 years ago. He also said some of us would start to mock Him because it is taking so long for Jesus to return (2 Peter 3). But remember that God’s view of time is completely unlike yours and mine.
Let’s pray for God to help us see time through His perspective.
So teach us to number our days that we may get a heart of wisdom.
