Read the SUBTITLE. When you want to reign in life, one of the dimensions is reign over time. Time is the greatest non-renewable precious commodity in our life. Let’s see what the Bible say about time. Psalms 90:10. Sadly for the young generation, we feel forever young. I mean, I’m not against young in heart people, but when your attitude is not right then you only waste it.
In general, we know three parts of time: the past, the present, and the future. Let’s start talking about time one by one:
- The Future. Here we have the fruits (or you can say the consequences of your past), a period where our hope will meet with the reality. There is a story about seed and tares in Matthew 13:24-30. And you may remember this one famous biblical principle: “what you sow is what you reap (Galatians 6:7).” The future gives us hope to recover and also warning to keep guard. Matthew 19:30.
- The Present. Here we make the decision(s), a decision-making period. We learn to live in the present, do it now, don’t waste your time. Ecclesiastes 9:10. We also learn to repent now and don’t waste God’s grace. Romans 2:4, Matthew 24:43-44.
- The Past. Here we can’t change a thing, an unchangeable period. Learn from David in 2Samuel 12:22-23. You can’t change even a fraction of time from your past, that’s why you must move on. Philippians 3:13-14.
Do you reign over time? Read again Romans 5:17, do you learn something from Jesus? He is our future, He is with us to get through today’s trial, and He already redeemed our past. I know that you have your own past stories, and maybe it affects your present and making your future filled with uncertainty. God reigns! And because He reigns, we have future in Him, and before that time comes, He gave us Holy Spirit so we can reign in life and spiritual family to grow with you.
Do you love your spiritual family? Do you want them to reign in life? Would you say a prayer for a specific person around you? You may know them or not, and God put this Word in your heart about them, to help them reign in life, as God wants them to be.
