What time is it

It’s time, I feel it deep in my soul. Do you feel it too? Time to leave behind the trappings of all that holds us back. Instead hold only to that which matters: the Savior (for He never let’s us go), those we hold close (near or far), and to eternity (which has already begun for His beloved).

More of each day spent worshiping and praising, less spent chasing and fretting. Time to make sure no doubt remains as to whose we are: we are the children of the Most High God. Time also to remind our dear ones of this truth.

This hurting world will never stop hurting; no better time to gather as many as we can into His presence. For He is good and nothing here compares. “Whom have I in heaven but You? And on earth I desire no one besides You.” (Psalm 73:25 BSB)

In Psalm 73 the writer tells of his weariness of seeing wicked people prevail and seemingly have the easy life. He lifted his complaint towards God recounting all the evil around him. Then comes a turning point when he undoubtedly remembers his own shortcomings.

“Yet I am always with You; You hold my right hand. You guide me with Your counsel, and later receive me in glory.” (Psalm 73:23-24 BSB)

We must draw the same conclusion that the Psalmist did. As He lifted up his final words to God, He brought everything full circle. All that seems so important pales in comparison to what is true. “My flesh and my heart may fail, but God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever.” (Psalm 73:26 BSB)

We witness daily all the things he wrote of long ago, only we observe it on a global scale he couldn’t have imagined. We fuss and fret wondering why God doesn’t end it all. Until His perfect timing comes to make all things new, we are tasked with telling the story.

But as for me, it is good to draw near to God. I have made the Lord GOD my refuge, that I may proclaim all Your works.” (Psalm 73:28 BSB) What time is it? Time to tell of Jesus and His great love.

  1. One of my favorite psalms! Yes, it is not only time to show the love of Jesus each day, but also time for us to draw nearer to Jesus every day. Beautiful post, Paris!
