A TIME FOR EVERYTHING

From the time that we were knitted in the womb (psalm 139:13-16) to when our life is over, God will have orchestrated every move, every challenge, every part that we had faced. But the most assuring part is that He has a plan for everyone. Not just for salvation (2 Peter 3:9) but He has given us a future and a hope. (Jeremiah 29:11)

He knows the plans for us, plans for welfare not of evil, to give us a future and a hope.

Solomon tells us that there is a time for everything. No matter what season that we are in, God has also given us provision for that time.

Ecclesiastes 3

For everything there is a season, and a time for every matter under heaven:

a time to be born, and a time to die;

a time to plant, and a time to pluck up what is planted;

a time to kill, and a time to heal;

a time to break down, and a time to build up;

a time to weep, and a time to laugh;

a time to mourn, and a time to dance;

a time to cast away stones, and a time to gather stones together;

a time to embrace, and a time to refrain from embracing;

a time to seek, and a time to lose;

a time to keep, and a time to cast away;

a time to tear, and a time to sew;

a time to keep silence, and a time to speak;

a time to love, and a time to hate;

a time for war, and a time for peace.

WE ALL KNOW WHICH SEASONS WE WOULD LIKE TO BE IN. 

EVERYONE DESIRES TO BE IN THE GOOD AND COMFORTABLE SEASONS, PREFERRING LAUGHING TO MOURNING, LOVING TO HATING, GETTING TO LOSING; BUT WHATEVER SEASON GOD HAS PLACED US IN, WE MUST ALSO RESOLVE TO FAITHFULLY SERVE HIM THERE.

ARE YOU IN A SEASON OF FRUITFULNESS? A SEASON OF TRAGEDY OR GRIEF? KNOW THAT THE LORD IS WITH YOU TO GIVE YOU STRENGTH!

It’s Time

Is it time yet? are the words I’ve been praying asking God where He wanted me to be in my ministry. I know I have a calling on my life to preach but where? Where do I go? These words have been spoken so many times.

Ever since I started preaching I knew I was supposed to be working with youth in some fashion or form. I started as a leader but I knew God had a higher calling. I’ve remembered the Words that the Holy Spirit spoke to me once “I have called you to raise up a generation” those words has never left me and I knew one day I would see those words come to life. But like everything there is a process in the waiting and I was waiting for those words to come to pass.

My co worker told me of a revival that was going on at his church so I stopped by expecting a Word from God. Near the end of the service they formed a prayer line, for some reason I didn’t want to go at first. But then as myself and one other was the only one that didn’t go I went ahead and got in line. And I’m glad I did, as the evangelist passed by me he paused and told me to “Rise up, it’s time for you to rise” I knew exactly what He was saying. It’s time!

Ecclesiastes 3 says  ” For everything there is a season, and a time for every matter under heaven.”

I’m scared but yet exited. Frightened but yet ready. So much to do and not enough time. But I know the plans that He has for my life and I’m ready to take the time and start working!
