God has a way of doing things on his timing, and his timing is better than our own. We don’t trust in God’s timing enough. We often think that our ‘time’ should be his ‘time.’ However, what is time anyway? According to the world’s greatest physicists, the past, present, and future are equally as real, and in space-time, they are happening at once! We don’t have time, we have entropy. We feel like we’re moving through time or flowing through it. However, time is not what we think it is. From a physics perspective, again, the idea that time passes or that we’re moving through time disappears…
Think of the arrow of time in this way. It is not built into the fundamental nature of reality, says famous physicist, Sean Carroll. We live in the aftermath of the Big Bang…or Big Event, as I like to call it. It happened 13.8 billion years ago. Everything you see, hear, feel, taste, and touch is called matter and is a result of it. Our very own bodies are made up of the same elements contained in stardust. The future has already happened, you just don’t know it.
God will make what we want to happen on his radar. As his children, we want to have control and be the captain of our ships. But there is a cosmic order, and we have to work within the Laws of Physics. People tend to think that they can make anything they want happen. Culture teaches if you only believe enough, religion teaches if you only have enough faith, you can have whatever your heart desires. It’s not true. Some things you want never happen to you. BUT MANY things do!
“In an eternal universe, such as the one we’re in, every rare thing can happen if you wait long enough,” says the famous philosopher, Sam Harris. But we have to be patient. Miracles happen but not in the way you imagined and sometimes it’s in a way you least expect.✨

We’ve discussed time at length, and I think Einstein had a much better grasp. However, whatever time is, we only exist in the now.

An old saying states that Time is the fire in which we burn… Very true.
