Time is Fleeting
2 Peter 3:8
The Upward Look

“But do not let this one fact escape your notice, beloved, that with the Lord one day is like a thousand years, and a thousand years like one day.” 2 Peter 3:8 NASB
Being human, we see time from a very short perspective. When we are young, time seems to move so slowly. Do you remember thinking that Christmas would never get here? The older we get, time seems to move faster so that the years just fly by. The psalmist states that man is like the flower of the field. When the wind blows it is gone (Psalm 103:14-15). However God is eternal, having no beginning and no end. He has a much different perspective of time as He transcends time. Though critics may scoff, God’s judgment is coming.
Lord Jesus, like a young child I long for Your return. Yet help me to live each day to its fullest by loving and serving You.
