Got a Minute?

Got a Minute?

S o what is time really? Let’s take the lowly “second”. 60 of them in an hour, right? Did you know that a “second” did not become a base unit of time until the 1800s? Did you know that it was only after 1967 that today’s definition of a second was finally settled, and that it has to do with cyclical changes that occur inside a cesium atom at a certain temperature?

Next time you are in a quiet room and you hear the second hand on a clock, think about how long it took humans to define that “second”. Then ponder milli-seconds, nano-seconds, micro-seconds, kilo-seconds, mega-seconds, and 15 other divisions of the lowly second. 1Corinthians 15:51 says that “in the twinkling of an eye we shall all be changed.” GE measured the twinkling of an eye and it comes out to a deca-second, or about a tenth of a second, lest you think that the bible doesn’t talk about the divisions of seconds and such, because it does. We will receive our new bodies in a deca-second! When you listen to that second hand tick, open a document in your computer and watch that curser blink in time to the second hand. These tiny divisions of time and life are all around us but are a blur because we are too busy to look for God at the atomic level, but look at what Colossians 1 says, vs 16 and 17:

“For by him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by him, and for him:And he is before all things, and by him all things consist.”

What things? The sum total of everything. ALL things, both visible and invisible. God is in the sub-atomic business. He created everything out of nothing. How big is your God? Big enough to be in the tiniest detail.

I have been a believer since 1981. Everything else before that is relatively meaningless. My heart has, from day 1, always been toward the subject of bible prophecy and I have seen the Lord do amazing things in my life through simply studying the Word and applying it to my life. I am a wife, grandmother and work full time in ministry. Life is full, and full of learning curves and seasons.
