Ecclesiastes 3:1 starts with “To everything there is a season, a time for every purpose under the sun.” In just one verse, we move from a season into a time and then, for a purpose. My season of harvest may be your season of planting. My time of weeping may be your time to laugh. No matter what time “zone” either of us may be experiencing, it’s all God’s time.
God is the Creator of us all. He speaks things into existence and He knows the beginning and the end. As believers, we know that God is in control of all things and at all times; we know He has a master plan. We know that what He has purposed will prevail. We know that all He has purposed for you, for me, and for this world will come to pass.
God knew there would be times when some of us would agree with each other and there would be times when we would not see eye to eye. However, for those of us who believe, we must be in agreement that as things happen, whether we like them or not, that God is always in control. He is aware of every activity under the sun and everything in its own season will be done according to God’s time.
As seasons change and as time moves on, God is always with us. He has promised that He will never leave us or forsake us. Will you trust God in your present season? Will you give Him praise not only during the good times but also during the bad times? Will you glorify His name even when you may not understand what is going on?
Psalm 118:24 says this is the day the Lord has made, we will rejoice and be glad in it. Whether this is your season to reap or to sow, or whether it’s your time to speak or to be silent, it’s all God’s time. Trust Him in this season to do what He has already purposed in your life. Embrace your current season in a way that will show Him honor.
Dear Lord, thank You for all you have done in my life. Thank You for allowing me to see different seasons and to grow and prosper in each one of them. Lord, thank You for all the times You have kept me, even when I would not consider spending time with You. Thank You for the times You turned my midnight into day. Lord, I need You all the time. I know that You are the same yesterday, today and tomorrow and that all time belongs to You! In the mighty and wonderful name of Jesus, Amen!
