I was a little frustrated with the letter T. At first, I thought that there would be many eligible words that begin with this letter. I mean, in Wheel of Fortune, it is one of the pre-selected bonus letters!
However, I wrestled with which word to choose. No worries though. I feel as if God showed me this one personally.
The Word – timeless
The Worth – As I have stated before, I work as a waiter at the Olive Garden. Although it is a good job, it puts me smack dab in the middle of my comfort zone. And that is a problem. I wrote about this a while back…Bad Words #1.
I kept using the excuse that I cannot see how this future is going to work out. There is a calling on my life. This I know to be a fact. Undeniable and completely real. Here is another post with more on my calling. My Haiti Experience, Called!
Isn’t that how many of us feel about our future? We don’t see how it works out.
The big picture? Yeah, right!
Does the canvas tell the artist how or what to paint? Not!
Does the 2×4 tell a carpenter how to build a house? Whatever!
I want to know the future. It would be great if we could see what is coming ahead.
But we can’t see the future. But God can.
And you know why God can see the future?
Simply because He is already there.
God said in Exodus 3:14, “I am that I am.”
That was all Moses needed to hear.
Jesus said in John 8:58, “Before Abraham was, I am.”
You can hear the proverbial pin drop. Jesus just said that he was alive before Abraham. A rough estimate puts Abraham being born around 2000 BC. Jesus would have been really old. I guess one does not age that much when you are eternal, or for this post, timeless.
The Work – Jesus is timeless. He has been around forever.
So the next time you get frustrated with a problem or you find you are stuck in your comfort zone, remember that God is already in your future. He sees where you are headed. This should give you amazing assurance.
Move forward in confidence fellow soldier. God is out in front paving the way!
