I hope you will go back and read Ecclesiastes 3, and then reread this post. There are so many things it is time for mentioned there. Out timing is not always His, we are capable of making bad choices, He isn’t.
People can choose the wrong person to marry when He would send the right one, maybe you made a bad career choice, when He had the perfect opportunity. Did you dance when your should have refrained from, rend instead of sew?
We have no say over when we are born, and people think you don’t have anything to say over dying, but there is prayer and healing. Jesus defeated death. I know I am here by His grace, having had a close call, and probably more than I know. He protects us from so much. Why?
He knows how to make it beautiful in His time. I do believe in heaven on earth, that people walking by faith, especially loving couples, even families can have heaven on earth. I believe He can make it so, by faith, hope in Him and the greatest of these, love. But not all people are of the same mind, have the same desires. Not everyone wants a peaceful, tranquil existence, so they just exist.
In my life, I have seen very beautiful things, but not nearly enough to suit me. I have seen far too much pain and suffering, dissention. I want the beautiful time. I don’t mind praying for people, but wouldn’t it be nice not have to. The verse about learning and not having to be taught again applies. Hebrews 5:12, What if believers all walked in what they were supposed to know and did not need t be prayed for? That would be beautiful!
It would be beautiful to not be weighed down with the cares of the world, the worries and fears, the things we all resist everyday in order to walk by faith. We should never waste His good gifts but walk in them, prophesy, follow after love, His name is Jesus.
He has just the right time, and that time could be very well now, before His return. He had spiritual gifts for you to open, He has a miracle with your name on it. He bequeathed us His peace. Yes, He left in in His will. Did you or do you receive it? He was punished for it, beaten and scourged for healing.
Jesus is love, altogether lovely, He had to come at a certain time and He will again. God ordains time, appoints time, and he can redeem it, He wastes nothing. God lives in eternity, can make the sun stand still, turn back time.
The clock is ticking on His return, are you ready or do you need to be taught again? If you don’t know Jesus, He has time for you. A God who can number the stars and name them, can measure the grains of sand, tell you the number of hairs on your head, can make time for you to know His love and receive Him as Lord. He really does love you, no one else could have made that sacrifice on a cross for you.
So follow love, His name is Jesus and He makes it beautiful in His time, because we don’t always give Him ours.
