Living By A Watch

I don't know how many times a day I check it...but I live by my watch.

God, on the other hand, doesn't even wear a watch...
"Unlike us, You’re not working against a deadline. You have all eternity to work things out." (Job 10:5 MSG)

In this verse, the Bible highlights the fact that God is above time and space. He is not confined to schedules and deadlines as we are.

I have a tendency to think "Hurry up God!" and try to put a watch on God's arm. But God never works on my schedule or against my deadline. He works consistently to accomplish His plan in my life...according to the pace He sets.

My problem is I need to change from "living by a watch" to living by faith...How about you?
