The way? Capturing the moment; we do it with cameras and other time stoppers; all to make permanent a commodity over which we have no control. For centuries we’ve been fascinated by the idea of controlling time.
Think about it. The quest to slow time or speed it up is foolish. Time will not stop for the asking and it certainly won’t cooperate with our meddling. The very nature of time is fleeting.
God’s Word tells us: “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me” (John 14:6).
I believe that God designed everything with a thought to impermanence. Why? Otherwise we would make the things we could control our gods. Only God is permanent. Wasting time thinking about how you might get less or more of it? We’d be far better served finding permanence in God, knowing and serving Him, than chasing after time. It will always be running faster than you can chase it.
We pray. “Father, we pray that You would draw people to Yourself, to You as the Father, through Jesus, the Way, the Truth, and the Life today. We pray that this would happen. Help us to understand time and how we need to use it. Please, oh, God, today, through us, through our mouths speaking this word. In Jesus name. Amen!”
“Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself.
Each day has enough trouble of its own” (Matthew 6:34)
