Now is the accepted TIME...
As I read my devotions this morning I noted TIME. A young friend recently commented on her blog about the passing of time going too quickly. Yea, and she is younger than me! I too, have said lately to my husband...
"Where is the TIME going!"
It seemed but yesterday that I had a house full of children...now just the two of us. It truly seems to me as if I awoke one day and they were all grown and on their own. I view photos around my home and many a time become overwhelmed with missing them and I so remember the moments the very photo was taken...just YESTERDAY? Wasn't it??
Remember how short my time is:...Psalm 89:47a kjv 1611
My husband and I have spoken much about this subject of TIME; as we approach yet another new year and another birthday to come...aging.
How deceitful youth is...thinking there is plenty of time and going about as if their youth will last forever. Oh dear one in youth...think not that it will catch up with you!? Yes, indeed it shall.
Ecclesiastes is a sobering book of the Bible. Speaking of life, time and consequences.
To every think there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven:
A time to be born, and a time to die.... Ecclesiastes 3:1-2a kjv 1611
How often are we surprised at a young persons death...why? Because we forget...the soberness of life itself and reality.
There is no man that hath power over the spirit to retain the spirit; neither hath he power in the day of death: and there is no discharge in that war....Ecclesiastes 8:8 kjv 1611
TIME is of the essence...critical.
So teach us to number our days that we may apply our hearts unto wisdom. Psalm 90:12
I have taught thee in the way of wisdom; I have led thee in right paths. Proverbs 4:11
How thankful I am to know the LORD Jesus Christ as my Saviour...to know that the TIMES of my life are sure in HIM. I have known Him and have been taught by Him and truly His WORD has led me in the right paths.
Though TIME passes quickly by...we can still grasp the moment, Praise Him with Thanksgiving and know that the accepted time is here... The day of Salvation.
The accepted time is TODAY.
Blessed his he that readeth and they that hear the words of the prophecy, and keep those things which are written therein: for the time is at hand. Revelation 1:3
(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 kjv 1611
Friend..do you know the LORD Jesus Christ as your personal Saviour? You can TODAY.
I acknowledged my sin unto thee, and mine iniquity have I not hid. I said, I will confess my transgressions unto the LORD: and thou forgavest the iniquity of my sin. Selah.
For this shall every one that is godly pray unto thee in a time when thou mayest be found.... Psalm 32:5-6a kjv 1611
Call upon him while there is TIME....and call upon him while he is near....
Seek ye the LORD while he may be found, call ye upon him while he is near...
Isaiah 55:6a kjv 1611
