God Appoints Times And Seasons

a-time-for-everythingYou might be feeling the weight of the world on your shoulders right now, or you could be on your honeymoon, whatever you are going through it helps to remember that its God who appoints the times and seasons, the events of our lives; the happy and the sad, the easy and the difficult. He is in control. God exalts and humbles the same person. He raises nations up and brings them down. He has a purpose in what He does even if we have a hard time understanding what that purpose is. Romans 8:28, says “And we know that God causes all things to work together for good to those who love God, to those who are called according to His purpose.” To truly live is to change because change challenges you to grow through the trials and tribulations of life. You should make the best of each event and of each season of change. You should enjoy your life. God has made everything beautiful in His time. Even the painful things are set in place by God. Everything has its purpose even the cold winter storms that bring rain. You must wait with patience for the full revelation of God’s mysterious providence. All you can see is the middle of God’s work, not its end. He knows the beginning from the end, and He has you where He wants you. But also, set aside place in your heart where you trust God to provide all of your needs because He loves you so much.

Ecclesiastes 3 says;There is an appointed time for everything. And there is a time for every event under heaven

2 A time to give birth, and a time to die; A time to plant, and a time to uproot what is planted.

3 A time to kill, and a time to heal; A time to tear down, and a time to build up.

4 A time to weep, and a time to laugh; A time to mourn, and a time to dance.

5 A time to throw stones, and a time to gather stones; A time to embrace, and a time to shun embracing.

6 A time to search, and a time to give up as lost; A time to keep, and a time to throw away.

7 A time to tear apart, and a time to sew together; A time to be silent, and a time to speak.

8 A time to love, and a time to hate; A time for war, and a time for peace.

9 What profit is there to the worker from that in which he toils? 10 I have seen the task which God has given the sons of men with which to occupy themselves. 11 He has made everything appropriate in its time.  He has also set eternity in their heart, yet so that man will not find out the work which God has done from the beginning even to the end. 12 I know that there is nothing better for them than to rejoice and to do good in one’s lifetime; 13 moreover, that every man who eats and drinks sees good in all his labor, it is the gift of God. 14 I know that everything God does will remain forever; there is nothing to add to it and there is nothing to take from it, for God has so worked that men should fear Him. 15 That which is has been already, and that which will be has already been, for God seeks what has passed by.”
