BEAUTIFUL IN ITS TIME
He has made everything beautiful and appropriate in its time. He has also planted eternity [a sense of divine purpose] in the human heart [a mysterious longing which nothing under the sun can satisfy, except God]—yet man cannot find out (comprehend, grasp) what God has done (His overall plan) from the beginning to the end.
Ecclesiastes 3:11 AMP
Have you ever eaten unripe fruit? Maybe you have, and did you like its taste? I know the answer of most of you will be no. It is the same in life, if you do anything or access anything before its maturity time; you may not like its result.
The Bible says, God has made everything beautiful and appropriate in its time. This means anything becomes beautiful when it's done in its time. Many people are not patience enough to wait for the things to mature that they may last. Many of us want to fulfill all of our dreams now; and get prosperity that we desperately desire now.
This has caused many people to involve themselves with illegal deals and sometimes cheat to get ahead. God planted eternity a sense of divine purpose in our hearts. This is a mysterious longing which nothing under the sun can satisfy, except God. If you want to know if the blessings you have received come from God; they always come with this satisfaction with them. You can gain the whole world, but if God was not the one who gave you access to it; you will remain to be unsatisfied always.
This morning, I want to urge you to wait for a proper time for everything. If you a young man or woman who is unmarried, then sure you remain undefiled until marriage. Many people can say many things to cause you to sin. I came to understand that the best way to live a regret free life is to follow the word of God without questioning it. The Bible calls God the Father the Ancient of Days. He was there before the beginning of days and He will be there forever.
If He forbids you to do something, you need to be sure that He is the wise God. He knows the side effects of you doing that particular thing. Follow the Lord's timeline; don't mix yourself with any kind of sin. Live your life following His will and while waiting for a proper time for everything. Your life will be beautiful, and full of peace. You will eat the goodness of the land and live to see many days. We are going to conclude 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 wait for the proper time of everything. I want to live a beautiful life, help me to have that life. In Jesus' Name, Amen.
