God’s Faithful Timing

“There is a time for everything…” Ecclesiastes 3:1

Sometimes (oft times) the wisest of wisdom is also the simplest as well. It can take us time to believe that; for in our ignorance and pride we would rather think that the more complex something is the more wise it must be. Solomon in all his wisdom once stated something so simple: there is a time for everything.

There will be a time for everything. The fact of the matter is that life and the circumstances in it are constantly changing. This can sometimes be encouaging to us when we are going through a tough season that it will someday end, or sometimes it can be a reminder to enjoy the good spans as they come.

we live in a world of changes, that the several events of time, and conditions of human life, are vastly different from one another, and yet occur promiscuously, and we are continually passing and repassing between them, as in the revolutions of every day and every year. In the wheel of nature (Jam. 3:6) sometimes one spoke is uppermost and by and by the contrary; there is a constant ebbing and flowing, waxing and waning; from one extreme to the other does the fashion of this world change, ever did, and ever will. –Matthew Henry

We also know that God is faithful. When we understand these two things (that God is faithful and that there is a time for everything) it can help us to be much more patient and to trust in God when we are going through just about anything.

If we are faithless, He remains faithful; He cannot deny Himself.  –2 Timothy 2:13

So if you are waiting for something, just remember that God is faithful and that there is a time for everything. In His timing He will bring it to pass. If you are going through a rough time know that it is only for a season. Pray that God would bring you through it and hope expectantly for the faithful answer which will eventually come. If you are going through a happy season thank God for it and enjoy it to its fullest—for no season can last forever.

Let us hold fast the confession of our hope without wavering, for He who promised is faithful. –Hebrews 10:23
