Summary: There is no time with God, because He's all about "NOW". Are you living in God's NOW or are you living in your time zone.

(Built large letters saying "NOW". The "O" was a clock)

("Now" series can been seen on www.gwafamily.com)

How many of you are wearing watches today?

How many of you use only your phone for a clock?

How many of you wake up to soothing music?

How many wake up to that old school alarm?

We have clocks everywhere: nightstands, phone, microwave, vehicles

HOW MANY ARE STILL LATE never on time for anything

ILL: I keep my clock 30 minutes ahead

ILL: (Turn the dial and set the time on the clock)

Every clock is ticking at the same second around the entire world.

We all move by it - IT’S UNIVERSAL

VIDEO – PLANET EARTH

CUE - UNIVERSAL

A. Even though we’re all TICKING AT THE SAME TIME

1. We’re all in a DIFFERENT PLACE OF TIME.

CHINA – 11 hours ahead

Sydney – 14 hrs ahead

Cape Town Africa – 7 hours ahead

VIDEO – SOLAR SYSTEM

CUE - PLANETS

B. God has set the PLANETS to cycle with TIME

1. The earth spins once EVERY 24 hours, 365 days to go around the sun.

VENUS – 243 days to complete one turn to our 24 hrs - 224.7 days/SUN

JUPITER – 10 hrs to complete one turn to our 24 hrs - 12 years/SUN

MARS – 24.6 hours - 687 days/SUN

NEPTUNE – 16 hours - 165 days/SUN poor NEPTUNE people

TO PEOPLE IT’S ALL ABOUT TIME – NOT ENOUGH

Do I have time to get the kids from the Soccer, Tommys party, to Groceries

TO US ITS ALL ABOUT TIME

BUT TO GOD IT’S ALL ABOUT “NOW” TIME

C. God looks at TIME SO DIFFERENT then we do.

1. God is OUTSIDE OF TIME because He is the creator of time.

D. HOW MANY DAYS DID GOD CREATE THE HEAVENS & EARTH?

1. Was it 6 days or 6000 years

2 Peter 3:8 NIV

But do not forget this one thing, dear friends: With the Lord a day is like a thousand years, and a thousand years are like a day.

E. TIME is IRRELEVANT to GOD

1. Because Everything to HIM is NOW TIME

2. 5 YEARS OR 10 YEARS from now for us, IS RIGHT NOW FOR GOD.

3. God is in the PAST, PRESENT and is already in the FUTURE with us.

Revelation 22:13

I am the Alpha and the Omega, the First and the Last, the Beginning and

the End.

ILL: Once Upon A Time – They’re stuck in a TOWN, No time outside town

F. Because of the FALL OF MAN – SIN CAME UPON the world

1. WE’RE STUCK IN a DIFFERENT TIME ZONE THEN GOD’s

2. And GOD’S SAYING, “How Are You Using TIME NOW”

SOME ARE STUCK IN PAST TIME

A. TIME IS SOMETHING SO VALUABLE TO EACH OF US.

1. WE LET TIME DICTATE OUR LIFE in ways it’s not supposed to.

2. We HOLD ON to the PAST.

3. Maybe the GLORY DAYS or WRONG CHOICES that have been made

WE TEND TO LIVE THERE

Philippians 3:13 ESV

Brothers, I do not consider that I have made it my own. But one thing I do: forgetting what lies behind and straining forward to what lies ahead

SOME ARE STUCK IN FUTURE TIME

A. STUCK IN THE FUTURE preparing, planning, worrying for things ahead

James 4:13-14

Now listen, you who say, “Today or tomorrow we will go to this or that city,

spend a year there, carry on business and make money.” Why, you do not
