God Has The Plan For All Time



“It is too late.”
The old man shook his head.

“It is never too late or too soon. It is when it is supposed to be.”
He smiled. “There is a plan, Dor.” 1


Human “measures” of time:  Attempts to control, restrain, encapsulate time.

–Hourglass sands sifting downward, a visible motion of forward time.

–Watch hands advancing time in a procession of seconds, minutes, hours.

–A time construct for awakening with alarm and snooze buttons.

–Lights at street intersections indicating times to stop or move ahead.

–Anti-aging creams with Retinol A, attempting reversals of time.

 God’s measure of time:  He has the plan for all time.

–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)

6 Then they gathered around him and asked him, “Lord, are you at this time going to restore the kingdom to Israel?” He said to them: “It is not for you to know the times or dates the Father has set by his own authority. But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.” (Acts 1: 6-8)

–Why, you do not even know what will happen tomorrow. What is your life? You are a mist that appears for a little while and then vanishes. (James 4:14)

32“But about that day or hour no one knows, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father. 33 Be on guard! Be alert! You do not know when that time will come. (Mark 13:32-33)


We cannot hold onto it, for it is not tangible.

We cannot measure it, for there is no measure.

We cannot control it, for it is in God’s control.

God has a plan: (Ecclesiastes 3:2-8)

    a time to be born and a time to die,
    a time to plant and a time to uproot,
    a time to kill and a time to heal,
    a time to tear down and a time to build,
    a time to weep and a time to laugh,
    a time to mourn and a time to dance,
    a time to scatter stones and a time to gather them,
    a time to embrace and a time to refrain from embracing,
    a time to search and a time to give up,
    a time to keep and a time to throw away,
    a time to tear and a time to mend,
    a time to be silent and a time to speak,
    a time to love and a time to hate,
    a time for war and a time for peace.

There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under heaven

(Ecclesiastes 3:1)

“It is never too late or too soon. It is when it is supposed to be.” 1
