There is a season (a time appointed) for everything and a time for every delight and event or purpose under heaven.
Ecclesiastes 3:1 AMP
Yesterday we started discussing the topic of time. There is a famous saying that says time is money. In other words if you use your time properly, you can make money out of it. While others uses their time to sleep and doing nothing; other people uses the same time to develop their lives and do things that will benefit their future.
The Bible says, “For everything there is a season, a time for every activity under heaven.” This teaches us to respect time and not to ignore any event that takes place in our lives. Nothing happens by chance, everything has a reason. God allowed many things to happen in your life that He may shape you to become who you are today.
Many people of God fail to invest in the time that they have. People of this world invest their time properly and they tend to succeed in their things compared to the sons of light. It is about time now we need to teach and emphasize the importance of time in the Church. We know that we will live forever in Christ Jesus; but we need also to know that our assignment in this world is bound in time.
This morning, I urge you to respect time. If it is a time for work, you should make sure you work and concentrate on it. If it is the time for prayers, then you need to pray and completely submit your will to the Father. If it is the time to study, you need to study and make sure you understand what you are studying.
In the meantime you need to wait for the time of some things to happen in your life. It is not possible for a young man to get riches in few years; unless you inherit it or win a lottery. It takes years to accumulate wealth and there is no shortcut of it unless you involve yourself in illegal deals. It is the same in ministry, work or anything in life. It is not possible to get an overnight success and think that that success will last; but what you worked for will last because it is not a thing that you obtained overnight. May God give you wisdom to use your time properly. We are going to continue with this Time Series tomorrow, may God bless you!
Pray this prayer with me by faith and God is going to answer your prayer....
Dear Heavenly Father, help me to respect time and be patience to wait for proper time for everything. In Jesus' Name, Amen.
