The Tomorrow War

I’m not usually a fan of scifi movies – but if you’re into alien type things, The Tomorrow War’s storyline is not that bad. It also falls into the time travel category, and although some scenes are a bit farfetched, it made me think.

What if someone from the future came and told us exactly what would happen in the next 30 years?

Well – guess what? We know the author and creator of time. We don’t always need to know what’s going to happen, BUT we can trust God, the One who literally holds our future in His hands.

Mark 13:32 (https://bit.ly/3BpR0v5)

“In Time”

We’re taking it back to 2011 with this movie. How would you live your life if you stopped aging at 25 years old (the dream – forever young), you needed to buy time to live, and time was literally money?

This movie highlights the truth about time – that it’s the REAL commodity we should be paying attention to. Once your time runs out, that’s it.

So, how are you spending your time these days?
Are you spending time growing in your relationship with God?
Are you being kind to others?
Are you working towards being salt and light in the world around you?

For such a time as this #covid19

“For such a time as this” Esther 4:14.

You were born for such a time as this. God knew, before He formed you, that you would be living through a global pandemic. Let that sink in. God. Knew. He is not surprised at where you find yourself.

What can you do with this opportunity? Rest is important, and we encourage rest. But how can you be working with what God has given you, in such a time as this? Are there projects you can start/finish? Who can you reach out to? What will this time mean to you in 1, 5, even 10 years?

Ask God to show you.

Perfectly on time

What do you want more than anything else in the world? A thing? A relationship? A horrible situation to be fixed?

God knows exactly what you’re longing for. It might feel like He doesn’t care, or He’s too busy, because He isn’t coming through for you NOW. But that’s not true. God is always perfectly patient and perfectly on time. Sometimes His timing won’t make sense to you, but you can trust He always has good reasons for letting you wait.

‘The Lord isn’t really being slow about His promise, as some people think. No, He is being patient for your sake…’ (2 Peter 3:9 – http://bit.ly/2TLDLzK)
