Right Now AND Past, Present, Future

Published on 23 February 2011 by in Encouragement


Long before he laid down earth’s foundations, he had us in mind, had settled on us as the focus of his love, to be made whole and holy by his love. Long, long ago he decided to adopt us into his family through Jesus Christ. (What pleasure he took in planning this!) He wanted us to enter into the celebration of his lavish gift-giving by the hand of his beloved Son” (Ephesians 4:1-6, MSG).

AS our Eternal, Heavenly Father lovingly looks at us, He sees us not just in the right now moment but all at once – past, present and future… without a time frame as we know it.

This awareness can really help us approach Him about our here and now. It can also help us listen with perspective, to cooperate for our greater joy and fulfillment. Remember, He purposed us in the first place to be the FOCUS of His love! We are HIS idea!!!

“Now that you have made me listen, I finally understand – you don’t require burnt offerings or sin offerings. Then I said, ‘Look, I have come. And this has been written about me in your scroll: I take joy in doing your will, my God, for your law is written on my heart’” (Psalm 40:6b-8 (NLT).

God we desire to glorify you. You are the Beginning and the End and you really know what’s best anyway!
