"Are You greater than our father Abraham, who is dead? ... Who do You make Yourself out to be ... have You seen Abraham?" Jesus said to them, "Most assuredly, I say to you, before Abraham was, I AM."
~ John 8:53,57-58 (NKJV)
When life brings great change, we can usually point back to a moment when everything turned. If we see the change as good, we treasure the defining moment. If we see the change as tragic, we may wish to return to the time Before and replay how we might have lived out whatever proved greater than ourselves.
There is no going back to Before, no replays of that greater-than-ourselves thing which might define our present moment.
But there is One Who is both "greater than" and before life's defining moments. He orchestrates such moments for His purposes, which are always good. He is here with us in the present moment, and in every defining moment which yet awaits us.
Our Father and Lord, please fill us with Your precious Spirit. Permit us to see Your hand when we look behind, ahead, and at the present path upon which our feet stand, so that we might walk closely at Your side.
