With the Lord one day is as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day. - 2 Peter 3:8 esv
Have you ever thought about how God doesn't see time as you and I do? The Bible tells us that to God, one day is as a thousand years and a thousand years are as one day. He sees the past, present, and future all at once, for He is over time. That blows my mind. We are so finite. We begin; we end. God always was, is, and will be. Isn't that amazing?
When we get to heaven, there will be no clocks, no calendars—just unlimited time. That unsettles me. Clocks and calendars give order to my life. A place with no time just boggles my mind. But we’ll never be tired, and that will be great! Even though God is over time, at the perfect time He became one of us, as a baby boy. He invaded history right on time—BC/AD, it was the zero hour—to show us Himself and save us from sin and offer us eternal life with Him, timeless life. Isn't that amazing? Won’t you take time this Christmas to say, “Thank You, God”?
