One Day is Like 1000 Years

“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).

Have you ever considered the difference in God’s timing and ours and how it breaks down?   Our family did and came up with a chart.   Let’s do a little math.

One day = 1000 years – the original life span of man

24 hours = 1000 years

1 hour = 41.6 years or a Biblical generation (middle age of man)

60 minutes = 41.6 years

1 minute = .69 years, 251 days or about nine months, the gestation time for a baby (266 days)

60 seconds = 251 days

1 second = 4.21 days – the amount of time we should allow for God to answer prayer
