THOUSAND YEARS LIKE A MINUTE ; MILLION DOLLARS LIKE A PENNY ?


Overwhelmed? Consider, God the Father who is never overwhelmed by anything. Continually turn your fears, doubts, worries, frustrations, and even your questions to Him. Ask Him to open your heart & eyes today to SEE Him for who He is where you are.

The following illustrations OF HUMOR, HUMILITY, & a HUM have brought me back around in this matter as of lately.
May they have the same impact on you, as you consider their meaning...

Humor:

“One day little Izzy asked God, ‘Yahweh, is it true that for You a Thousand years is just a Minute?’ Yahweh answered, ‘Yes, Izzy, that is true’. Izzy asked, ‘And Yahweh, is it true that for You a Million dollars is just a Penny?’ Yahweh replied, ‘Yes, Izzy that also is true.’ Extending her right hand with palm upturned, Izzy said, ‘Yahweh, give me a Penny please.’ And Yahweh said, ‘Certainly! It’ll take only a Minute’.”

- adapted from an illustration from Brennan Manning PAGE 52 from book RUTHLESS TRUST

Humility:

Francis Chan quote - “it’s time for some of us to stop apologizing for God and start apologizing to Him for being embarrassed by the ways He has chosen to reveal Himself”

- page 102 from book ERASING HELL

Hum:

“Have you counted the stars in the heavens
Have you walked the circumference of the earth
Have you measured the boundaries of the universe
Do you tremble at the Word of God

Have you uncovered the source of the thunder
Have you tamed the crashing mighty sea
Have you defied the force of gravity
Do you tremble at the Word of God

CHORUS:
The wise will hear Him and obey His word
Long and blessed will be their days upon the earth
The fool will perish in the folly of his ways
Do you tremble at the Word of God

Have you considered the scope of eternity
In the light of unwavering truth
Have you regarded the works of a strong and mighty hand
Do you tremble at the Word of God

CHORUS

Oh, do you tremble at the Word of God
At the Word of God
Yeah, do you tremble at the Word of God”


- lyrics by Wes King 1995
