Decades Party

Over the weekend our girls ministry hosted a decades party for all of our high school girls.  We dressed up, ate lots of sweets, danced and just had fun being together.

We also talked for a little about the timelessness of God.  It's amazing to think that throughout all of the changes of this world our God is always the same.  Here are some thoughts...

God and Time:

For a thousand years in your sight are but as yesterday when it is past, or as a watch in the night. Psalm 90:4
But do not overlook this one fact, beloved, that with the Lord one day is as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day. 2 peter 3:8
Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever. Hebrews 13:8
Malachi 3:6 “For I the Lord do not change; therefore you, O children of Jacob, are not consumed.

Before the mountains were brought forth, or ever you had formed the earth and the world, from everlasting to everlasting you are God. Psalm 90:2 
God is not man, that he should lie, or a son of man, that he should change his mind. Has he said, and will he not do it? Or has he spoken, and will he not fulfill it? Numbers 23:19
Us and Time:

For whenever our heart condemns us, God is greater than our heart, and he knows everything. 1 John 3:20
The heart of man plans his way, but the Lord establishes his steps. Proverbs 16:9
So teach us to number our days that we may get a heart of wisdom. Psalm 90:12
My times are in your hand; rescue me from the hand of my enemies and from my persecutors! 31:15
Come now, you who say, “Today or tomorrow we will go into such and such a town and spend a year there and trade and make a profit”— yet you do not know what tomorrow will bring. What is your life? For you are a mist that appears for a little time and then vanishes. Instead you ought to say, “If the Lord wills, we will live and do this or that.” James 4:13-15
But when the fullness of time had come, God sent forth his Son, born of woman, born under the law, Galatians 4:4 

God has created time and he is outside of it unlike us.  We need time to function, to measure our days. Time should be a reminder to us of how much we need to rely on the Creator of it.  It should remind us that we are not in control and that our loving and gracious Father is.  Time points us to God, because He doesn't need it, He thought of it, He is outside of it and we are not.   Next time you check the time, remember who it is that created it and that created us and sent His perfect son at just the right moment.
