A Time For Everything

Friday, February 16th, 2018

There is an appointed time for everything. And there is a time for every event under heaven. He has made everything appropriate in its time. He has also set eternity in their heart. Ecclesiastes 3:1, 11a

1. SAVOR THE SEASONS. Life is a series of seasons and stages. God has an overall mission for your life but there are different stages of your course. Along the way He has divine appointments prepared for you. So enjoy the journey!

2. WHEN YOU DON’T KNOW WHAT TO DO. We often want new direction and new anointing, when God is just looking for us to follow through and complete the things He’s already told us to do. If you feel unsure, obey what you already know to do—work hard and stay faithful in the small things. Daily obedience fosters big time breakthrough.

Brethren, I do not regard myself as having laid hold of it yet; but one thing I do: forgetting what lies behind and reaching forward to what lies ahead, I press on toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus. Philippians 3:13-14

3. PRESS ON. When we quit focusing on ourselves, we can begin to live a life of gratitude and purpose instead of a life filled with “should’ve, could’ve, would’ve.” Next time you get a prompting in your heart to pray—do it. If you feel like you should encourage somebody—don’t hesitate—call or send that person a text. Dig deep in the Word and get ready. God is opening doors for you!

The best is yet to come!

I am strong in the Lord and the strength of His might (Ephesians 6:10). I devote myself to prayer, keeping alert with an attitude of thanksgiving, praying that God will open a door for the Word (Colossians 4:2-3). I am fighting the good fight, I will finish the course, I will keep the faith (2 Timothy 4:7).

stage, noun
A section or portion of a journey or course. The distance between stopping places on a journey; a leg. Any distinct time period in a sequence of events.
