Micro…

a little while…John 16:19

In just a little while Jesus would be arrested and abused.

In just a little while Jesus would be crucified and then resurrected.

In just a little while Jesus would be appearing to His disciples and strengthening their faith.

In just a little while the Holy Spirit would descend upon the disciples and the church would get its start. In just a little while.

The word tells us that “a day is like a thousand years to the Lord, and a thousand years is like a day”. (2 Peter 3:8)

What you and I consider to be “forever” when we are waiting on the Lord, God calls it a “little while”, a term from which we get the English word “micro”. When you and I think of something micro we think of something really small, perhaps even tiny.

Yet, I am not sure we would all use that word to describe the waiting period we might be experiencing right now with the Lord in a particular area of our lives. I think many of us would use macro or even mega to describe our situation.

But God in His infinite wisdom knows that in just a little while, a micro minute or day, He will come through and respond. He knows what He is about to do even when we don’t sense it, see it or have any certainty of it.

In just a little while the Lord will make it clear.
