What time is it? Of course the answer to that question comes with over a hundred clichés, depending on the context. It could be time to get going, or maybe it’s time to give up. It might be the time of your life or simply bedtime. Time is only connected to our lives here on earth. We are all pretty much on the same 24/7 schedule, day in and day out. God doesn’t have a time issue though. He’s Eternal, always, and forever. Look at this scripture from 2nd Peter 3:9.

“Don’t overlook the obvious here, friends. With God, one day is as good as a thousand years, a thousand years as a day. God isn’t late with his promise as some measure lateness. He is restraining himself on account of you, holding back the End because he doesn’t want anyone lost. He’s giving everyone space and time to change.”

According to this scripture then, what time is it? It’s time to nudge your spirit and measure the distance between yourself and the Creator. Perhaps you measure time by birthdays. With each one, you either have lots of time or less time to accomplish your life purpose. A lifetime feels short indeed.

Your purpose then is to live well and get to know God. He’s giving you time to grow and discover He’s there. Hebrews 10 tells us that God made an agreement with human beings to put His teachings into their hearts and write His thoughts on their minds. In other words, He’s not only patient, giving us time to figure things out, but He’s already blessed us with a portion of Himself, a sense that He exists, a knowing that we cannot dismiss.

Our life journey is about discovery. We learn to respect others and love people as friends and family. We discover we have a soul purpose, a reason to be here at this point in time. God’s purpose is for each of us to know Him, experience His love and pass that love along to others.

Today’s a great day to reach out to the One who already knows you, and calls you by name. He sees you. He hears you. He knows the things that hold you back from surrendering to Him. But He’s there. He isn’t going to leave you desolate and alone. He’ll be with you always, till the end of time.

Praying He opens the eyes of your heart right now.
