Physicist and rabbinical scholar Gerald Schroeder makes the following observation: “At the speed of light (the highest speed attainable in our universe), time ceases to flow altogether. The time of all events becomes compressed into the present, an unending now. The laws of relativity have changed timeless existence from a theological claim to a physical reality.”  

When thinking of God, theologians have spoken of Him always being in the eternal present. This is how he is able to know the end of an experience before it begins. 
Einstein showed us, in the flow of light, the corollary of the Eternal Now: I was, I am, I will be. Since God is light, according to 1 John 1:5, it is understandable that everything happens to Him in the eternal now. There are no surprises to God. He doesn’t have to wait for things to happen. 
My total life is compressed into the present with God. So even though I don’t know what tomorrow holds for me, God does. Even what I might face in the next moment of my life, God knows. My death will not take Him by surprise. 
The best name for God that captures this is the name God gave Himself when he said to Moses, tell the children of Israel “I AM” sent you to deliver them from the slavery of Pharaoh. 
This same God knows everything about your life, past, present and future. He wants you to trust Him for everything you are experiencing now and that you might be worrying about in your future. Be still before Him and know that He is God.
