“The future belongs to those who see possibilities before they become obvious.” Theodore Levitt
The apostle Paul said in Ephesians 3, “I pray that from his glorious, unlimited resources he will empower you with inner strength through his spirit. Then Christ will make his home in your hearts as you trust in him. Your roots will grow down into God’s love and keep you strong. And may you have the power to understand, as all God’s people should, how wide, how long, how high, and how deep his love is. May you experience the love of Christ, though it is too great to understand fully. Then you will be made complete with all the fullness of life and power that comes from God.
Now all glory to God, who is able, through his mighty power at work within us, to accomplish infinitely more than we might ask or think. Glory to him in the church and in Christ Jesus.”
Forward thinking. It’s all about God’s love.
But what about the rest?
Living for tomorrow never allows you to enjoy today – that’s something that many people regret later on.
Living in the past is a waste of time and counter-productive.
When God made man, He obviously created us for forward motion. Our foot points forward, right? Sure, we have the ability to move side to side, and even backward. Sideways motion is valuable in dodgeball, and I sure can glean a lot of wisdom from the past. However, the most natural and efficient motion is in a forward direction.
To me, Paul says in verses 16 through 21 above that God created man to live on the edge of tomorrow, and in God’s glorious love.
I believe with God the possibilities are endless.
