Extra Hour

Ecclesiastes 3:1 1 There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under the heavens: (NIV)

I really enjoyed having an extra hour yesterday, especially on a Sunday.  It gave me extra time to prepare my heart to join other believers in worship of our God.  But by the time 11 PM came I wasn’t so delighted to have a day that was 25 hours rather than 24.  When God designed the day into 24 hours He knew the endurance of the fleshly body.  We may think we need extra time each day but God, in His might wisdom, knows we would abuse the time by abusing our bodies even more than we do now.  There is a time appointed for everything we need to do.  Our problem is we don’t consult God on how to use the time He provides for us and what to do and when to do it.  We all have the same amount of time in a day.  Some may think the days are too long and some may think the days are too short.  Some of us vacillate between the two thoughts depending on the day.  To start our day out talking to God and asking Him to order our day is the best use of our time and, when we do this, we will find the time we have in that day is just the exact right amount of time.  Let us let the Creator of the day, the Creator of time, guide us in the best use of it.
