A Day for a Year

May 17, 2024

When the Lord turned again the captivity of Zion, we were like them that dream.

Psalm 126:1 KJV 

In the journey of faith, time holds profound significance. From the creation account in Genesis to the visions of Revelation, we find that God often uses time as a symbolic marker to convey His plans and purposes. Remember, we serve a God who does not dwell in time but rather in eternity. 

But do not forget this one thing, dear friends: With the Lord, a day is like a thousand years, and a thousand years are like a day (2 Peter 3:8, NIV)”. 

In this reading for today, we would be looking at several instances where time was suspended, and God proved again and again that He is never late, even if our perceived timeline has passed. In the account of the exit of the Israelites from Egypt in Genesis 12:35-36, we see a people who were enslaved for 430 years under hard labor without any hope. Yet they ended up coming out with great wealth—the kind of wealth they could never have gotten naturally. 

The Israelites followed Moses' instructions and requested articles of silver, gold, and clothing from the Egyptians. Remarkably, the Lord had softened the hearts of the Egyptians, prompting them to grant the Israelites' requests, allowing them to plunder the Egyptians. 

Who would have imagined that an immigrant could rise to rule in a foreign land? There is nothing that God cannot do;

This illustrates that any situation can change overnight. A 430-year challenge vanished in a single moment. What is that circumstance that has defied time? What is that condition that has persisted for so long? Today, you shall see them no more in Jesus' name. 

Joseph awoke as a prisoner in Genesis 41, but before the day's end, he ascended to the position of Prime Minister in Egypt. Who would have imagined that an immigrant could rise to rule in a foreign land? There is nothing that God cannot do; there is no situation that He cannot change. What seems lost for a thousand years can be restored in a day. 

Our responsibility is to believe; it is God's prerogative to act. Often, we miss experiencing God's sovereignty over our situations due to unbelief. Instead of focusing on how it will happen, fix your gaze on God, who controls time and seasons. Attempting to rationalize how a confirmed doctor's report might change is futile. God continues to perform miracles, and your situation will not be an exception. 

Whether you find yourself in seasons of waiting, testing, or fulfillment, remember that God is sovereign over all time and space. He who assigns each day for a year remains faithful to fulfill His promises and accomplish His purposes in your life. Just believe! 


Song of Worship  

There is nothing you cannot do 

There's no mountain you cannot move 

If you have said it Then you will do it 

Cause You have a Track record Of keeping Words 

And you're not about To stop doing it now. 

Song by Nathaniel Bassey 

Prayer - Father, I declare You are the Alpha and the Omega, the beginning and the end, and Your timing is perfect in all things. Help me to trust in Your sovereignty, even when I cannot comprehend the fullness of Your purposes. I ask this day that whatever I have lost be restored unto me in Jesus' name. Amen.
