We humans march along a timeline of life. Birth. Middle. Death. We make plans and measure our progress along the line of life. But what if our timeline of life is a false perspective? What if life is measured not by days, months, or years or even by minutes and hours? What if our entire lifetime is really an existence beyond time? The Bible offers a rich understanding of time, translated through various cultures over what we chart as thousands of years. How might we live our lives differently if we move from interpreting our lives as time-bound and instead, see them as God does, time-less as we live in an unending relationship with Him?
Our lives are managed, measured, and sometimes dominated by the clock. But is God restricted by time like we are? In this chapter, you’ll consider how you might live differently if you removed your temporal constraints and instead perceived life as an unending relationship with God.
It’s natural to make plans and measure progress on our own timeline. But God’s purposes are timeless, and ultimately, He is in control—not us! In this chapter, you’ll explore God’s timeless purposes and learn how you can participate in His eternal plan.
When life’s challenges seem to linger, we often ask God, “How much longer?” In this chapter, you’ll be challenged to consider your life from an eternal perspective and put your trust in the One “who was and is and is to come.”
The Bible offers a perspective of time that’s much different than our own. And in this chapter, you’ll hear biblical insights about time to benefit your life from the ancient “Song of Moses,” recorded in Psalm 90.
How often do you look at your watch or phone to check the time throughout the day? We think about our lives in terms of minutes, hours, days, and years; but God’s understanding of time is different from ours. In this chapter, you’ll be challenged to pause and consider God’s perspective on time.
