Ecclesiastes 3:11 “HE has made everything beautiful in its time. HE has also set eternity in the human heart; yet no one can fathom what GOD has done from beginning to end.”
By GOD’s weaving of every thread
known and unknown;
using every strand found with
is not (as some say) HIS “reverse engineering”.
Far from it! Instead! HE sews
sovereignly — all!
And that from a viewpoint historically
distant; from eternity past and beyond it,
With perfect precision HIS will
both forward and back and in
Timelessness — bound.
So question yourselves and not
HE WHO is coming
for your AUTHOR is Righteous:
HIS plans — faultless — stand!
Through the past and the present
and everything future;
unrelentingly seamless, engineering
is CHRIST! THE CREATOR of Time
and your soul!
As HIServants eternally bound by HIS blood are we,
Devotional: 2 Corinthians 2:6 “For he says, “In the time of my favor I heard you, and in the day of salvation I helped you.”I tell you, now is the time of God’s favor, now is the day of salvation!”
When things are chaotic, when there’s not “enough time” even though one prioritizes theirs carefully…remember Time’s CREATOR WHO is Timeless.
Psalms 31:15 “My times are in YOUR hand: deliver me from the hand of mine enemies, and from them that persecute me!”
When enemy forces attack both visibly and invisibly, our times are in those wondrous nail scarred hands…which HE has used to make the hands of Time. HE is in control!
Proverbs 16:9 “A man’s heart plans his way, But THE LORD directs his steps.”
Your steps. Our steps. All those in the past where we fell or went off course…HE wove together with good as HE promised.
Romans 8:28 “And we know that all things work together for good to those who love GOD, to those who are The Called according to His purpose.”
Do we love GOD enough to trust HIM with every moment of our lives? Do we realize that HE didn’t reverse engineer things but set them perfectly in place from before Time?
We cannot in our frail flesh comprehend HIS power yet I hear the voices of many lifting the worries and concerns of this life more so than praising the CREATOR’s NAME….and resting in HIS finished work.
Paul and Silas in chains and in the dungeon SANG HIS praises! They were RESTING! In pain, yes. Verbally assaulted and malnourished? Absolutely.
But what does GOD’s WORD tell us and is IT a reminder for good and positive encouragement or does it detract from the peace we all so zealously seek?
The answer is obvious. So we rest in this truth!
From HIS work and HIS weaving…there are no loose ends, no frayed strands or no unraveling threads.
Rest then in the Forward Engineering of Heaven’s Fabric — side by side — even as Paul and Silas! Rejoice then in the NAME of the LORD!
Amen and amen!
