Babcock: eternity now

God is our refuge and strength,
an ever-present help in trouble.
—Psalm 46:1 (NIV)

No clocks keep time tomorrow. Springs push and hands point now. Now is the appointed time for clocks as well as people. God never helped anyone tomorrow. He is a very present help. What is eternity, but God’s now? Let us then live the eternal life with God now.
... Maltbie D. Babcock (1858-1901), Thoughts for Every-day Living, New York: C. Scribner’s sons, 1901, p. 44-45 (see the book)
See also Ps. 46:1; Ex. 3:14; John 8:58

Quiet time reflection:
Lord, forgive me for ignoring Your constant presence.
