Perspective in Time

Then [the LORD] said to Abram: "Know certainly that your descendants will be strangers in a land that is not theirs, and will serve them, and they will afflict them four hundred years. ... But in the fourth generation they shall return here." (Genesis 15:13,16 NKJV)

"In the house of My Father are many dwelling places. ... I am going to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I am coming again, and I will receive you to Myself, so that where I am you also shall be." (John 14:2-3 ALT)

Mankind moves through time like a train on a single track, at a single speed. God inhabits time like a flock of eagles—able to see it from all places, directions, heights. His prophecies do not foretell the future He plans, but share a glimpse of what He already sees as completed, from His unlimited perspective. We know certainly that He depicts what is—like a sister who phones from our destination to describe it. And the description cannot match the waiting experience.

Lord of Eternity, the Ancient of Days, Your good Word is faithful and true. Thank You for permitting a glimpse of what lies ahead. Thank You for waiting there for us, even as You walk with us along the way.
