Time

Time is a precious gift of God. Our time on this earth is short. In addition, we do not know how much time we have left. Wise people use time wisely.


“Whereas ye know not what shall be on the morrow. For what is your life? It is even a vapour, that appeareth for a little time, and then vanisheth away.”

(James 4:14)


God always does things at the perfect time:


He sent his Son right on time:


“But when the fulness of the time was come, God sent forth his Son, made of a woman, made under the law,”

(Galatians 4:4)


Christ died at the right time:


“For when we were yet without strength, in due time Christ died for the ungodly.”

(Romans 5:6)


When God says it is time to do something, we need to obey:


“Sow to yourselves in righteousness, reap in mercy; break up your fallow ground: for it is time to seek the LORD, till he come and rain righteousness upon you.”

(Hosea 10:12)


“And saying, The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand: repent ye, and believe the gospel.”

(Mark 1:15)


“(For he saith, I have heard thee in a time accepted, and in the day of salvation have I succoured thee: behold, now is the accepted time; behold, now is the day of salvation.)”

( II Corinthians 6:2)


“Again, he limiteth a certain day, saying in David, To day, after so long a time; as it is said, To day if ye will hear his voice, harden not your hearts.”

(Hebrews 4:7)


For God's children, God is there at the right time:


“For in the time of trouble he shall hide me in his pavilion: in the secret of his tabernacle shall he hide me; he shall set me up upon a rock.”

(Psalm 27:5)


“What time I am afraid, I will trust in thee.”

(Psalm 56:3)


“Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need.”

(Hebrews 4:16)


Those who have been born again need to use time wisely:


“And that, knowing the time, that now it is high time to awake out of sleep: for now is our salvation nearer than when we believed.”

(Romans 13:11)


“Redeeming the time, because the days are evil.”

(Ephesians 5:16)


“Brethren, I count not myself to have apprehended: but this one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before, I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus.”

(Philippians 3:13-14)
