In my last post, I talked about how God sees deeper than the skin and today, I want to carry that thought further (based on my message from last Sunday) about how God sees beyond today.
I’m busy today. I have a lot of things up in the air that are all happening at once. Your day is like mine, isn’t it? Catching up isn’t really an option. And maybe catching up isn’t what it’s cracked up to be anyway. After all, if we were caught up, we wouldn’t be necessary in the moment. So we keep living by the clock… tick, tock, tick, tock.
God is caught up. Right now, He’s sustaining all things. But while He’s holding everything together, He’s not subject to time. He created it. He wound it up “in the beginning” and someday, He’ll stop it rather abruptly.
When we size up needs and try to meet them, we do so according to our perception of this moment. What are my resources right now? What are the issues at hand right now? What are the pros and cons right now? But God is aware of not only the “here and now” factors, but the “hereafter” factors.
God works according to His comprehensive knowledge of all things covering all time. His will won’t always make sense right now because He’s preparing us for tomorrow. Today, He’s preparing you for tomorrow and right now, He’s preparing you for eternity.
This is why it’s so important to walk closely with Him, hand-in-hand in fellowship with the Master. He knows the way. He knows where we’re headed. He’s fully aware of the pitfalls and triumphs we’re going to face. He’s outside of time. And thank God, He sees beyond today!
