2 Peter 3:8

8 But do not overlook this one fact, beloved, that with the Lord one day is as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day.


This scripture has as much to do with God’s perfect timing as it does with His dominion, power, omnipresence, and divine will. Did you ever have a long-held prayer, desire or wish suddenly unfold right before you?! That is, in a sense, the realizing of God’s favor. Sometimes we pray and it comes to pass rather quickly but then sometimes, we pray for something (feeling as if it might never happen, knowing that if it did it would surely, could only, come from His divine hands)!

There is definite faith in the knowledge of our helplessness and the despair of desiring something so big that ONLY God could deliver. What a wonderful thing it is, when we are given an opportunity to see the thing that we prayed forward, come into light. Maybe a long time friend or acquaintance that suddenly has a new-found respect for God and is now being led by the Holy Spirit. Maybe it’s a release of something that gripped you in your health, your finances or state of mind. Whatever the suddenly of God is, that just showed up for you, it was done the minute you asked.

When we surrender our lives to Christ, repent and confess our salvation, in that instant, we are made His. There are eons of eternity that await us but God perfects us, in the time necessary for all things to coalesce. He is above time, the creator of time and the giver thereof. We can not fully understand as we are bound by the constraints of time but we can be sure that it is a tool He gave us for our welfare.

There is one other lesson here, being that of patience and peace. Knowing that He is in control and that all matters affecting the right now and the ever after are within His capable grasp. Life is a blink, a worthwhile blink but none the less, so very minuscule in comparison to eternity. It’s a necessary segment but we get so caught up in the fleeting that we miss the fixed. God is that fixed source, that entity of redemption and love that will always be. Problems, struggles, losses, failures are merely entropies that fade when the growth has subdued the lesson contained.


 Habakkuk 2:3

“For still the vision awaits its appointed time; it hastens to the end—it will not lie. If it seems slow, wait for it; it will surely come; it will not delay.”

“For still the vision awaits its appointed time; it hastens to the end—it will not lie. If it seems slow, wait for it; it will surely come; it will not delay.”

it will not lie. If it seems slow, wait for it; it will surely come; it will not delay.”

“But when the fullness of time had come, God sent forth his Son, born of woman, born under the law, to redeem those who were under the law,

so that we might receive adoption as sons.”

“For while we were still weak, at the right time Christ died for the ungodly.”

Isaiah 40:31

“But they who wait for the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings like eagles; they shall run and not be weary; they shall walk and not faint.”

Ecclesiastes 3:11 

“He has made everything beautiful in its time. Also, he has put eternity into man’s heart,

yet so that he cannot find out what God has done from the beginning to the end.”

Genesis 18:14

 “Is anything too hard for the Lord? At the appointed time I will return to you,

about this time next year, and Sarah shall have a son.”

“Lest you be wise in your own sight, I do not want you to be unaware of this mystery,
