He knows our every moment!

"Many, O Lord my God, are Thy wonderful works which Thou hast done, and Thy thoughts which are to us-ward: they cannot be reckoned up in order unto Thee; if I would declare and speak of them, they are more than can be numbered." Psalm 40:5

Have ya ever sat and thought about catching your breath? Is there actually a way to catch our breath? Some could say it is like trying to hold now from becoming then, the rhythm of our own breathing is a marker of time. Each breath is anticipated in the future, found in the now, and finished in the past, its kinda like our internal clock ya could say.


Plants and animals are also governed by internal clocks. Leaves of leguminous plants lay in one position during the day only to lay a different way at night. Did you know that sea anemones expand and contract to the rhythm of the tides, bees will go out and pollinate flowers at a fixed time, kinda like the way that humans can estimate time with out the help of clocks.

The world has a universal form of measurement, as there is 24 hours in a day, which is broken into 60 hour minutes, and that breaks down to 86,400 seconds in a day. These specifics give us the basis for the calendar which is in Chronos time. Timers, watches, clocks and other time devises also fall into the category. We can say that this linear definition that Alpha & Omega, the beginning and the end who is The Eternal now, who was and is and is too come.

But.

We can break this down into smaller pieces. We can live in the moment with God who is also known as the I Am.

It still is frustrating trying to catch ones breath, when we think we have captured our breath, we are off to pursue another. We will always be between breaths in Chronos time.

How can He be, Was, and Is, and Is to come in Chronos time? Well that as an easy question, it is because He is beyond our time dimension.

"For My thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways My ways, saith the Lord." Isaiah 55:8


The Eternal One measures time is Kairos. the Greek word means the exact time appointed to something. In Kairos it as if time is completely unbound, yet also stopped. Only in Kairos can He be One, yet Three. Only in His time can free will and predestination exist simultaneously. Only in His time can He know me before I am.

The distinction between Chronos and Kairos could be easiest described as a single straight line going forward where its end is known only in God's mind. On that single line is past events, present events, and future events. It is linear, which is a measurement in one dimension only which describes Chronos time. on another spectrum there are lines, arcs, and circles going in every and all different directions. These lines, curves and arcs contains both here and now, now and then, here and there; kinda like the way we colored as a child before we knew knew about staying in the lines. Its a wonderful jumble of marks. Its the place that is both near and far in God. We are becoming in Chronos, and complete in Kairos.

When God said, "let there be light" the sky was filled with hundred million trillion stars to sustain life in our universe. When God said, "let there be light" it was on the first day of History, and at the same time but only in Kairos time, He has said it today as well.

In kairos today, He says________(ur name here) in our image, and "come unto me," and "dont be anxious."

"Every day will have no more trouble than you can bear; and everyday will have mercies sufficient for the day's stress."  Lamentations 3:22-23 NASB

While yet we are between breaths in Chronos, in Kairos He just breathed the first and everlasting breath into my being on the first day of History, the beginning of time.

"For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are My ways higher than your ways; and My thoughts than your thoughts." Isaiah 55:9
