It’s actually quite a distance away.
I have friends that live in a different country from my own.
In order to keep up with exactly what time it is where they are, I have set a world clock on my smart phone to their time zone.
Also, on the same phone page, I have the time zone where I live, on the far eastern side of my country.
That way, I can compare what time it is here to what time it is there at a glance.
By default, the manufacturer of my smart phone placed the time that it would be where their company is located—on the far western side of my country.
While checking the time on my world clock page today, I was struck with a thought as I read the words that went along with my friends’ time zone in another country.
It simply read,
Tomorrow. 9hr 30m ahead.
Although I understand the concept in simple numbers of minutes, seconds and hours, something else came to mind.
Tomorrow—my friends are already experiencing it.
I will be soon, but not yet.
When tomorrow comes for me, God will already be there.
In fact, He’s there now.
He is as much in my future as He is in my present.
God is not constrained by human measurements of existence.
The Bible tells us that,
“A thousand years in Your sight
are like a day that has just gone by,
or like a watch in the night.”
Whatever concerns we may have about the future, we must trust that God will be there with His power, sovereignty and love.
So, how can we compare what time it is here to what time it is with God?
It’s already tomorrow.
Infinitely eternal hours ahead…..
