Kronos Vs Kairos
We serve the Almighty creator God who made heaven and earth and everything in them. He also made time and because time is a creation of his, he is outside of time. This is why when people have the objection of God and say “who created God” they do not understand that God did not have or need a creator because God has always been.
Rev_21:6 Then he told me, “It has happened! I am the Alpha and the Omega, the beginning and the end. I will freely give a drink from the spring of the water of life to the one who is thirsty.
Time is the only commodity we cannot get more of and once it has gone, we cannot get back. This is why we should never waste it, because it goes very quickly.
Our life’s journey is calculated in terms of the 24 hour clock, which is also called Kronos time (Which a Greek word based around their mythology of the god of time) , which is 60 seconds in a minute, 60 minutes in a hour, 24 hours in a day, 7 days a week, 4 weeks in a month, 12 months in a year. You can then break it down further into, decades, centurys and millennia etc. So there is a defined calculation for time. However there is a type of time that is not governed by anything physical but by the will of our creator himself and is divine, that is Kairos time or God’s time.
God’s timing is perfect but many times it does not make sense to us because it is different to our expectation of calculated time.
We live in a world where everyone wants things now, now, now! Instant gratification, so when it does not come instantly we are quick to move onto something else.
However as believers we need to understand the process of ‘waiting on the Lord’
Isa 40:28 Don’t you know?
Haven’t you heard?
The Lord is the eternal God,
the Creator of the ends of the earth.
He does not grow tired or weary;
and his understanding cannot be fathomed.
Isa 40:29 He’s the one who gives might to the faint,
renewing strength for the powerless.
Isa 40:30 Even boys grow tired and weary,
and young men collapse and fall,
Isa 40:31 but those who keep waiting for the Lord will renew their strength.
Then they’ll soar on wings like eagles;
they’ll run and not grow weary
they’ll walk and not grow tired
This is why one of the fruits of the spirit in Galatians 5 is Patience.
God is never earlier and he is never late, BUT his is always on time. No matter what we are going through, he will never give us more than we can bare and at the he perfect time for us, he makes a way out of the trouble.
If we understand this, then we will have the ability and the desire to praise him, even through the troubled times.
Job 13:15 Though he slay me, yet will I trust in him: but I will maintain mine own ways before him.
The problem is when our praise becomes conditional on God sorting things out in our time, however God wants us to recognize where we are, so he allows us to go through certain things in life. (He already knows where we are). As we go thorough these things, two things can happen:
So understanding Kairos for the believer in so important.
Being sensitive to Kairos is also very important because as we go out there and present our bodies as living sacrifices, holy and acceptable to God, which is our reasonable service, we will be witnessing to people who do not believe.
So being sensitive to Kairos will allow us to be used by God and operate under HIS anointing.
There is so much more that can be said about Kairos time but Kronos time will not permit it right now. You see kronos time is limited, where as Kairos time is unlimited!
Parallel Business Principles
The thing that will kill your business every time is procrastination, which is the waste of kronos time. Most people fail to be successful because of in effect use of their time. They do not do the basics consistently.
There is a simple formula to success and that is consistency + persistency + determination = success
All of those things are to do with how you utilize kronos time. However there is one more element for the believer and that is FAITH, faith to know that as you do the RIGHT THINGS in kronos time, God is working things out for your good in KAIROS time.
So be encouraged and keep on doing what you are doing:
Jer 29:11 For I know the plans that I have for you,’ declares the Lord, ‘plans for well-being, and not for calamity, in order to give you a future and a hope.
