As humans we are confined by time, hours, days, seasons and years. Do we really appreciate that is God that has given us time?
“Then God said “Let there be lights in the firmament of the heavens to divide day from night: and let them be for signs and seasons, and for days and years” Genesis 1 v 14
God created these on the fourth day, so that they were in place before He created man on the sixth day. The earth has been governed by time from the very beginning.
We wake each morning to a new day and many of us rush around looking at the clock to see how time is going.
We live in a society today that is becoming more aware of Wellbeing and making time for ourselves. One aspect of this is relaxing and meditation, to help with pressures of this life that lead to anxieties.
Relaxing and meditation may help us for a little while but wouldn’t it be great if we could find something that can help us all the time.
Well we can, by taking time out to read (or listen to) God’s word the Bible we can learn that He has a plan for this world when all people will live in peace.
“The wolf shall dwell with the lamb…..and a little child shall lead them……..They shall not hurt or destroy……..For the earth shall be filled with the knowledge of the glory of the LORD as the waters cover the sea”. Isaiah 11 v 6 – 9
“There shall be no more death nor sorrow, nor crying. There shall be no more pain, for the former things have passed away”. Revelation 21 v 4
We can all called to have an opportunity to be part of this kingdom of God’s on earth.
Jesus God’s son said “Come unto Me all you who labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest” Matthew 11 v 28
As we begin another year, let us try to learn more about God’s purpose with the earth by using some of our time to learn more about Him.
