Ecclesiastes 3:1 and 11 says
1 To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven: 11 He hath made every thing beautiful in his time: also he hath set the world in their heart, so that no man can find out the work that God maketh from the beginning to the end.
We understand through scriptures that there is a time for everything.
When a thing is done at the proper time it’s very good, pleasurable and beautiful.
There is a time a baby is expected to start crawling, and then to start walking.
When you put your food on fire, there’s a particular time when that food will be ready to be eaten.
I’m sure you won’t enjoy taking an unripe mango. It won’t be pleasant to your taste buds
There is a time!!!
We know God lives in eternity, where there is no time, but in his dealings with men he operates in times and seasons.
Scripture makes us to understand that God has a plan for us, and this plan is not haphazard, I believe it is organised.
There’s a time for your wedding, your car, your house included in God’s plan for us.
Now scriptures says “And of the children of Issachar, which were men that had understanding of the times, to know what Israel ought to do; the heads of them were two hundred; and all their brethren were at their commandment” (1 Chronicles 12:32, KJV)
These guys understood the times.
They didn’t have two heads, More importantly they never had the Holy Spirit living in them like you and I do today.Read that last line again, I really want this truth to sink in.
The Holy Spirit lives in me, He is my teacher, He is God – the third person in the trinity, He is omniscient – He knows all things, He wants to reveal all things, the times and the seasons set for me also included.
When I understand the times, I will know what to do.There’s ease that comes with doing a thing at the appointed time.
I remember listening to Pastor Dunamis when he was sharing one of his past experiences. God revealed to him that he had to get married before the end of the millennium (that was back in 1999) and he did so, and in his obedience and doing it at the right time there was an ease that came with it.
Beloved, there is an appointed time for everything, and its only by the help of God’s Spirit that you can know these times that have been set, so that you can make the most of them.
Determine more than ever to develop your relationship with the Holy Spirit.
CONFESSION FOR TODAY
I understand the times, I know what to do, I am not confused. I will not miss the time of my visitation.
PRAYER FOR TODAY
Father, help me to develop my relationship with the Holy Spirit
