If you could see your life from the perspective of eternity—the beginning, middle and end all at once—what do you think would be the most important part? Would it be a past achievement? Or might some future event carry the most weight.
Actually, it’s what we do right now that’s most important! Why? Because now we have the chance to pursue God with all our heart. Now there’s opportunity to prepare for all He has planned for us. Scripture says we’ve been “created in Christ Jesus for good works which God prepared beforehand.” This brings whole new meaning to life!
God transcends time, and the now of God allows us to join with Him in all He has for us. So forget the triumphs and failures of the past. And rise above any fear of the future. It will help you reach forward in hope to what lies ahead.
