The very fact that God is not trapped in time as we are is a unique perspective. God, who is eternal, is the One who created time. The Psalmist states this clearly:
Your throne was established long ago; you are from all eternity. Psalm 93:2
Even Paul cites the fact that God existed and was making plans before time began.
No, we declare God’s wisdom, a mystery that has been hidden and that God destined for our glory before time began. 1 Corinthians 2:7
In fact, Genesis 1:1 opens with the words, “In the beginning God created…”. So if there is a beginning, there will surely be an end of time as well. Also, God created the first day, which is a unique measurement of time. Doesn’t that sound strange? There was a ”first day” in our history of time and it was God who established it.
God called the light “day,” and the darkness he called “night.” And there was evening, and there was morning--the first day. Genesis 1:5
Peter records the timelessness of God this way:
But do not forget this one thing, dear friends: With the Lord a day is like a thousand years, and a thousand years are like a day. 2 Peter 3:8
We as God’s creation are not eternal beings though. We are temporal. Meaning, our life in this world in which we live is only temporary. James puts it this way:
Why, you do not even know what will happen tomorrow. What is your life? You are a mist that appears for a little while and then vanishes. James 4:14
Ever looked at your life as a mist? Picture that imagery for a moment. It’s cloudy out, you know rain is going to come, but it starts with a light mist. It falls from the sky and lands on the ground and is no more. This should not discourage us though.
God in His unbelievable love for His creation has made it possible for us who are temporal, to live dwell with Him eternally in His presence in heaven.
We were therefore buried with him through baptism into death in order that, just as Christ was raised from the dead through the glory of the Father, we too may live a new life. For if we have been united with him in a death like his, we will certainly also be united with him in a resurrection like his. Romans 6:4-6
I pray you won’t be burdened with what we often consider a lack of time to get all the daily tasks in, but rather take advantage of the time that we have and rejoice in what is yet to come.
