How long is a day?
"Well," you might say, "that depends; do you mean how long is a complete day measured on a calendar or how many hours of daylight are experienced as opposed to darkness on any given day?"
From what I have read, the Earth takes 23 hours, 56 minutes and four seconds to rotate on its axis. This is actually called a sidereal day.
For my purposes, a 24 hour day will suffice just fine.
Since mathematics has never been my expertise, measurement of such things has not been at the forefront of my concern.
I do realize, though, that a day here on Earth is different than a "day" on Mars or Venus, for example.
In fact, one day on Venus lasts 243 Earth days.
But what is a day to God?
The Bible tells us that even darkness is light to Him. (Psalm 139:12)
Is there a present, a past and a future?
2 Peter 3:8 reads,
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.
When God says that something will happen, it will.
His promises are true forever.
We may grow impatient waiting, watching the sun rise and set, measuring the days and times.
With our limited minds, we may not understand God’s sovereignty over events.
His power and authority maintains our past, our present and our future.
Trusting Him with our lives is the wisest choice we can ever make.
