AND “O God, thou art my God; early will I seek thee.” (Psalm 63:1)

When we think of eternity, we think of life without end. In this world we are time and date conscious.

We mark events by years, days, months and plan our entire lives around them. Some of us run a tight schedule; we awake, then we get dressed, go to work, come home, cook dinner, rest, then go to bed. We spend our lives dictated by the pressures of time. 

We have all said or heard others say; “There are simply just not enough hours in the day.” However, there are enough hours in the day when we put Christ and His word first. Without stopping to kneel or acknowledging Him early, we will always run out of time. Our days are spent between the planning and doing of activities with each activity dictated by time. 

God is called the “Eternal God;” that means, He has no beginning and He will have no end. Before anything existed, He was. In the beginning was God. He does not dwell in time; He dwells in Eternity.

If we would walk in peace, we must first seek Him. By doing so, our lives cease to be dictated by the two little hands on the clock but by the two bigger hands that govern the universe.

“The man who would truly know God, must give time to Him.” — A.W. Tozer
