Beyond Time

In the beginning God……”

Genesis 1:1a

Have you ever thought what was before time? What was there before the earth? These questions are completely valid, and make up many thesis and doctorate subjects. Hundreds and thousands of words have been written on these subjects, thousands of debates, and numerous movies have been made to try to answer these questions, and yet the simple answer of what was before all things is written clearly in Genesis 1:1. You may say that is a cop-out answer, yet the reality is, is that the word of God is where all truth comes from. It is our starting point and God’s word will never change, grow old or become dormant. It is alive and is truth.

As humans, we only use a limited part of our brains full capacity. Some scientists say around 15%. Of that 15%, we try to fit the vastness of infinity and time. We put God in the box of our understanding and fit him into our pre-conceptions of time and space. Yet God is so much bigger than our brains comprehension of Him. Does that mean we shouldn’t try to understand? Not at all. What it does mean is that we should firstly, use God’s word as our source for knowing God, and secondly, we should not limit God to our human understanding of Him.

If our idea of God is just limited to the box we put Him in, when we pray for needs, worries and for His will, it will always be within the context of our idea of Him. Yet when we think bigger, we dream bigger. As our concept of how big God is expands, so our expectations of what He can do increases. When we take God out of the box we put Him in, He becomes greater. Let God be in the place He ought to be!
