Time...is God's not ours


Ecclesiastes 3:1 – For everything there is a season, a time for everything under heaven.

The word time is in the Bible 607 times.


Gods timing as we know is not ours. There are many times in Bible where God and Jesus have told men…. go and do this and someone will meet you there…. Wow, that’s vague. But the men go and guess what someone was there waiting as the men were told.


His timing is perfect, and He is patient to fulfill His words in 2 Peter 3:8-9 it says, “But do not forget this one thing, dear friends: With the Lord a day is like a thousand years, and a thousand years are like a day. The Lord is not slow in keeping his promise, as some understand slowness. Instead, he is patient with you, not wanting anyone to perish, but everyone to come to repentance.”


Seasons change and we adjust to it like we do the weather. Though some seasons are harder than others, we still make it through. Like a few years ago when we had that freeze here in the Houston area. We are not prepared for that kind of weather. But if we had a hurricane, we would know exactly what needs to be done.

God prepares or helps us work through different seasons in life we just need to take the time and resources giving to do the best we can.


Time spent with others is important, but time spent with God is necessary.

Time management is something I think some are good at and some are not. I have a friend that no matter what she is going to be late. We joke about it now but when we first became friends it was annoying…. but I’ve come to know that her timing and mine are not the same.

That’s just the way it is. So why is it if we are willing to adjust, know and accommodate this with the people in our lives, but we struggle with waiting on God even though we know His timing is not mine.

We need to keep in mind that Gods ways and time are better than our so waiting on Him to move is something we should learn to be ok with and not expect things to happen just because we think it is time and we want it to work.


We also need to prioritize our time to God.

Matthew 6:33-34 – Seek the Kingdom of God above all else, and live righteously, and he will give you everything you need. So don’t worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will bring its own worries. Today’s trouble is enough for today.

Time with God and learning more about who He is will help us to understand things better and understand Him better. As long as we are here on this earth we need to make sure we are prioritizing time with God. This will help us not to worry about tomorrow but to focus on Him.
