Jesus threw Himself into the moment and sanctified time for us now by flowing in the Spirit. Our time on earth is holy, precious and filled with purpose. Do you see your time this way? I will admit that I didn’t always see it this way.
In my life, I felt like time passed me by. I felt pulled back or paralyzed, often lost in my own life, without direction. Now, I wake up and do everything for the glory of the Lord – no matter how big or small. Time is on my side and infused with the glory of eternity. I access my time by faith and obediently walk it out. I throw myself into the moments and in doing that the rush of freedom in Christ overtakes me and eternity beckons me to open my eyes to see, to stretch out into today. I walk by faith, not by sight.
Therefore we do not lose heart. Even though our outward man is perishing, yet the inward man is being renewed day by day. 17 For our light affliction, which is but for a moment, is working for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory, 18 while WE DO NOT LOOK AT THE THINGS WHICH ARE SEEN, BUT AT THE THINGS WHICH ARE NOT SEEN. For the things, which are, seen are temporary, but the things, which are not seen, are eternal. 2 Corinthians 4:16-18
There is no time like the present so stretch out into today. With each passing moment, Jesus attuned His ear to heaven to hear the Father and to see what He was doing. He seized the moments and moved in eternity’s call – stopping for the woman at the well, healing the blind, raising the dead……… Each moment in time presented opportunities for Him when He captured them in faith.
He surrendered His life in time so that time would have no control over our lives. We live in time as eternal spiritual beings. Each moment I have is infused with eternity when I choose to believe and see with the eyes of faith.
A fear of time breeds anxiety and worry. Time tries to capture us in chaos and uncertainty unless we know, truly know that Jesus opened the door of heaven for us and invited us to live in time, within the boundless beauty of eternal glory. NOW.
So rather than wait, ponder, hesitate, procrastinate…stretch out into today. We have all we need in Christ to move in Holy Spirit to do what He’s called us to do.
Time levels itself out as we stretch out in faith. As we walk forward in faith, time presents itself in various ways.
There is the immediate in which we grasp heaven’s direction now. Moments in time overwhelm us with His beauty and glory. What was is gone and something new is here, breakthrough now.
There is that which is right ahead. We walk towards it as faith lays the path but we have to start now or we won’t get there. We see in the Spirit and walk to the sounds of a different drummer.
There is the future on the horizon. We glance at it, look at it and believe it but always remember it is the now moments in time that take us there. So time presents itself NOW and asks us the question, “What are you going to do with TODAY?”
Time is on my side and God asks me what I am going to do with it – each and every day. (Ephesians. 2:6 and Colossians 3:1)
So go ahead – dream, imagine, live it out in Holy Spirit.
Wisdom draws the boundary lines of what to do, where to go, what to believe for. Without Wisdom, we can easily get distracted and be drawn into places that are outside our heaven ordained purpose.
Jesus hems us in on all sides as Wisdom teaches us how to navigate time within wide-open place of exploration and adventure in Christ.
Wisdom walks with us, sets the pace and directs our steps in a glorious adventure. Sometimes we run, sometimes we walk, and sometimes we just stroll along with Him. Time is on our side.
Stretch out into TODAY! Each day has meaning and value…don’t lose track of the moments. In the moments there are people waiting to be healed, looking for a prophetic word from you. In the moments there are doors waiting for you to open in visions, revelation and eternal treasures in Christ. Stretch out into TODAY!
