Present, Past, and Future

“I am the Alpha and the Omega,” says the Lord God, “who is and who was and who is to come, the Almighty” (Revelation 1:8).

I generally focus on what God has already done or look forward to what He is going to do. I forget that He is working right now.

God has done something in the past. We are instructed to remember these wondrous works (Psalm 105:5).

God is going to do something in the future. Because of this we have surety and hope (Proverbs 23:18).

God is also doing something in the present. He does something new right now (Isaiah 43:19).

At all times, God is at work -- past, future, and even at this moment.

I am to live with remembrance, with hope, and with the knowledge that now matters too.
