“But do not let this one fact escape your notice, beloved, that with the Lord one day is like a thousand years, and a thousand years like one day” (2 Peter 3:8).
“Back in my day…” is an often heard preface to some denigrating statement about the present generation while arrogantly venerating the past, especially ones own past. Man controls neither time nor the destiny of this world. From a biblical worldview there is no such thing as my day, or your day; there is only God’s day. The Providential certainty is that His days are moving forward and his purposes will be fulfilled. Embrace the journey and look ahead with anticipation. Faith looks through the windshield of life, not the rearview mirror.
