Oxford Advanced Learner Dictionary appear short of words on the exact meaning of the word TIME
. However, I found an explanation that could be useful for our understanding here: Time implies, the time when something happens or when something should happen. Before this explanation, the dictionary explained time in the form of seconds, minutes, days, and months. It also explained time as a period and as an occasion or event. If you observe the various definitions given for time; you would realize how limited man's perspective is in relation to TIME. In short, no man invented TIME; the best any man can do is to create CLOCK.
I understand that the Swiss are master makers of Watches; but the best any watch can do is to help you know the time you are in - that is, no watch (whether wall watch or wrist watch) can replace time. In fact, the relevance of all watches are in TIME. It is time that makes every watch or clock relevant. Who then designed and made the TIME?
Then God said, "LET THERE BE LIGHTS
in the firmament of the heavens t divide the day from the night; an let them be for signs and seasons, and for days an years...."Genesis 1:14
If you are not very careful, you could assume that the LIGHTS invented TIME; but, with a careful look, you would realize that every TIME is a PRODUCT of the Word of God. God designed TIME, and He made it by His Word. I also discover from that same Scripture that God sets everything in order in TIME by His Word. Every appears and disappears in TIME by (in accordance to) the Word of God. No wonder the Scripture describes God as the One that calls the things that be not as though they were! I am sure you would be thinking that such an attitude on the part of God could be like lying. But I must say very quickly that God is too good, great, powerful, informed and determined to lie. Let God be true and every man a liar. The Word of God is as true as His Person; hence, the Word of God is called the Truth!
When God speaks, even if nothing was in existence; the Word swiftly move to create such things. Are you aware that God creates NOTHING except by His Word? The Word of God is the Only Tool in the hand of God for the creation of all things. In fact, all things, including you and I are products of the Word of God. While we are now sure about the creative potency of the Word of God; we must understand that God has put everything else under His Word in TIME. When God says that you will be the HEAD and not TAIL; even if you think you are currently nothing but a TAIL; the Word of God swiftly move out to make you the HEAD in TIME.
Most times, we judge the works of God by watches or clocks;however, the works of God are governed by the Word of God. When God says it; the Word creates it in TIME. Please understand that God is not under the rule of TIME; rather, He made everything to be positioned in TIME. Your MARRIAGE, PROSPERITY, WEALTH, HEALTH and INFLUENCE are not in doubt; instead, they are in TIME. If you trust God, wake up each morning with a smile on your face; ready to receive what the Lord has prepared for you in TIME by His Word. Remember, God MAKES all things beautiful in its TIME!
