"As long as the earth endures, seedtime and harvest, cold and heat, summer and winter,
day and night will never cease."
This is your time. You have never had any choice in regard to what time period you live in.
It was preordained and you’re in the middle of it. The seasons, the weather, and your days are numbered as
meticulously as every hair on your body. The past is over and the future hasn’t shown up yet, so all you
have is the present. That’s all you need. What you did today will never be duplicated. That unique time has
been used up, spent. You had one shot and you took it whether you were aware of it or not, whether you
liked it or not. In regard to pursuing that one thing you always felt you would be doing for God, you won’t be
a successful servant of God tomorrow unless you’re moving forward in that today. Procrastination by
definition is “putting off intentionally or habitually.” Neither is advisable for a Christian.
Right this minute there’s plenty going on in the world which we’d rather not be concerned with. The good
news is that we are told that we don’t have to. Jesus said, “Don’t let your heart be troubled and don’t let it be
fearful.” (John 14:27). Although some have arrogantly patted themselves on the back, no one person can
change the course of history with their mindset. Our thoughts will neither add, diminish, take away nor
prevent the precise course which has been directed by God almighty.
In the final analysis, death is a better companion than life because it guides our entrance into the ultimate
utopia; our Shangri-La. It’s the passageway to eternal life. No one avoids it. Mortality is replaced with
immortality and the saints of God will be clothed in glory, although arguably there may be no clothes at all.
Time as we know it will no longer apply to us, for it will lose itself in eternity. Ahead is a vast ocean of eternal
bliss and well being which all saints of God can confidently anticipate with much hope and trust.
Contrastingly, those outside of Jesus will dry up on the figuratively fallow desert floor of an ocean long
abandoned by the water of life; whisked away like tumbleweed, blessedly forgotten for all eternity by the
saints within God’s abode above.
The best plan of action in the now is to not procrastinate until tomorrow for it may never come.
Meanwhile, keep your heart’s fire burning hot enough so that it will burn tomorrow and forever.
Let it burn so high that it reaches the heavens and summons the glory of God to fill your being,
to enable you do what you need to do today. The best things on earth are the things you can’t
see, things you inherently know within. If you draw near to Him, He will draw nearer to you than
you could have imagined. This is your time.
