TO EVERYTHING THERE IS A SEASON


TO EVERYTHING THERE IS A SEASON

Ecclesiastes 3:1-8 (NKJV) To everything there is a season, a time for every purpose under heaven: 2 a time to be born, and a time to die; a time to plant, and a time to pluck what is planted; 3 a time to kill, and a time to heal; a time to break down, and a time to build up; 4 a time to weep, and a time to laugh; a time to mourn, and a time to dance; 5 a time to cast away stones, and a time to gather stones; a time to embrace, and a time to refrain from embracing; 6 a time to gain, and a time to lose; a time to keep, and a time to throw away; 7 a time to tear, and a time to sew; a time to keep silence, and a time to speak; 8 a time to love, and a time to hate; a time of war, and a time of peace.

As we read today’s verses, we can see that this is so true.  Life has its ups and downs; its days of great victory and its days of trial.  But what I have found out is that when we put God in charge of our lives, He helps us get through those rough times.  He promised us that He would never leave us or forsake us, and that is a promise that I hold on to!

You see, this world is still under the curse, and because of that we have to fight the good fight of faith.  One day when Jesus returns, all will be put back in order.  Today is not that day for the world, but it is that day for you and me!  What do I mean by that?  It says in Galatians 3:13-14, “Christ has redeemed us from the curse of the law, having become a curse for us (for it is written, ‘Cursed is everyone who hangs on a tree’), that the blessing of Abraham might come upon the Gentiles in Christ Jesus, that we might receive the promise of the Spirit through faith.”

You see, I might be in a curse-filled world, but with Jesus on my side, I know that through every test and trial that the enemy brings, Jesus will give me the victory.  So yes, there are seasons in life, but look at them as adventures that God is going to get you through!

CONFESSION:  Jesus has redeemed me from the curse, so whatever comes against me, God, my Father, will always give me the victory.
