Time. This weekend, we will ‘fall back’ an hour. The daylight hours are dwindling for those of us in the Northern Hemisphere. Some of us are beginning to scrape ice off our cars in the morning. Heavier coats are replacing our lightweight clothing. Leaves cling for dear life before ultimately losing their battle with gravity and fall to lay scattered upon our lawns and streets.
Time seems to fly by for us, season changing to new season. Have you ever tried to look at it the way God does? To us 40 years can seem like an eternity but to God it’s a blink of an eye. The picture of time for us is here and now, maybe a week or month from now, but for God it may be a century or two.
Many have lost faith with God through the ages because He doesn’t seem to respond but God does answer-in His time. And his timing is perfect. Every person mentioned in the Bible had moments when they felt God wasn’t answering in a timely fashion. However, if they trusted, God provided whatever was needed in that instance.
Here at MacArthur we are traveling through ‘The Story’ this year. The lower story is the one we, as humans travel while God is in the upper story. God is always traveling in the upper story but hopefully, we in the lower story, will intersect and walk with God through our time allotted to us in this time and space. We won’t be able to understand everything as God does, but confidence and peace in the Creator will help us as we travel our road in life.
