A Time for Everything
3 There is a time for everything,
and a season for every activity under the heavens:
2 a time to be born and a time to die,
a time to plant and a time to uproot,
3 a time to kill and a time to heal,
a time to tear down and a time to build,
4 a time to weep and a time to laugh,
a time to mourn and a time to dance,
5 a time to scatter stones and a time to gather them,
a time to embrace and a time to refrain from embracing,
6 a time to search and a time to give up,
a time to keep and a time to throw away,
7 a time to tear and a time to mend,
a time to be silent and a time to speak,
8 a time to love and a time to hate,
a time for war and a time for peace.
I have always loved these verses in Ecclesiastes 3. I just realized the song In His Time must have come from this section of scripture.
a time to scatter stones and a time to gather them, a time to embrace and a time to refrain from embracing,
God’s timing is perfect. Beloved do you believe that God’s timing is perfect? Waiting on God’s timing is sometimes difficult. We have people in our lives that are practice “a rolling stone that gathers no moss” This saying is in movies and songs. When I think of this saying I think of a person who lives life to the fullest.
God wants us to life life to the fullest. John 20:31 says, “But these are written that you may believe that Jesus is the Messiah, the Son of God, and that by believing you may have life in his name.”
Are you like a rolling stone gathering no moss? Or are you like Peter in Matthew 16:18, “And I tell you that you are Peter, and on this rock I will build my church, and the gates of Hades will not overcome it.”
There is a time for everything because one day we will gather at the river.
