Every Friday I join a community of bloggers for Five Minute Friday. One word prompt, five minutes. Unedited. The prompt this week is … Stretch.
Time stretches out before us, each day a twenty four hour segment of time waiting to be filled up.
There is One who is sovereign over each of our days and all of our time.
“I am the Lord, and there is no other; Besides Me there is no God. I will gird you, though you have not known Me; That men may know from the rising to the setting of the sun that there is no one besides Me. I am the Lord, and there is no other.”
(Isaiah 45:5-6, NASB)
He is the One who causes the sun to rise and set, all for the purpose of reminding us there is no one like Him. The order of time and days has a way of reminding us of the passing of time, of its preciousness.
“It is I who made the earth, and created man upon it. I stretched out the heavens with My hands and I ordained all their host.” (Isaiah 45:12, NASB)
He stretched out the heavens with His hands.
He causes the sun to rise and to set –
All to remind us that He is the Lord and there is no other.
