Beyond Time and Space

For centuries, most of the world followed the calendar that had been developed by Julius Caesar in the first century BC. But there was a problem. In Caesar’s calendar, years lasted longer than the solar year. As a result, dates never could be fixed. And no one seemed to be able to provide a workable solution.

Then, in the 16th century, Pope Gregory XIII developed the concept of leap year. His idea was to add a day to the calendar every fourth year. Although still somewhat flawed, this represented an improvement and was adapted as the new standard throughout the world.

This special day, and its unusual history, should remind us of the limitations of our human minds and the sovereignty of God. In Psalm 90, Moses wrote that God has been “our dwelling place throughout all generations.” He is beyond time and has been God “from everlasting to everlasting”—long before the creation of the world. He is beyond our understanding, and a thousand years in His sight is just “like yesterday when it passes by.”

Today, remember that God sees everything in your life from the perspective of eternity.  He is not worried. He already has declared the end from the beginning (Isaiah 46:9-11). He wants you to trust Him. And when you seek Him, remember that He will answer your prayers based on what is best for you.

Place your life in God’s hands right now. He’ll take away all doubt, fear, and worry. He has everything under control—today, tomorrow, and throughout eternity.
