This is everything about. It’s only about His time.
Galathians 4.4a – ὅτε δὲ ἦλθεν τὸ πλήρωμα τοῦ χρόνου – The appropriateness of time, the fullness of time, the completion of time, the arrival of the time set by God the Father, das Erfüllen der Zeit, die Fülle der Zeit, die Zeit die von Gott festgesetzt war, das kommen der Zeit, oder das ankommen, das dasein eines festgesetzten Zeitpunkt – it’s all about the same thing – God holds each and every second in His very hand, and nothing can happen out of His time, out of a certain timepoint.
And there is comfort from knowing that “my times are in Your hand”(Ps.31.15).
Can I add even a second (a cubit, an hour – Matth.6.27) to the life of a human being? (Or only worry is a wrong instrument to prolongue life? 🙂 ) Can I, really? Being a doctor, being learned that we are some sort of little gods, and there is a certain journey of the soul to come to the point to surrender all things in those Hands who actually kept everything there the whole time. It was only me fooling myself.
And how great the liberation! I am not in control, and I am not supposed to be.
But do I love His timetable? His not answering to my fervent prayers, to hurry or slow down some things I think were for my good and the good of others?
We were in Prague not so long ago, and that Astronomical Clock in the Old Town Square… It’s marvelous. It’s a must-see-and-ponder!
I’ll rejoice in taking His time one second at a time today. For tomorrow will worry for itself!
