To everything there is a season, A time for every purpose under heaven: A time to be born, And a time to die; A time to plant, And a time to pluck what is planted; A time to kill, And a time to heal; A time to break down, And a time to build up; A time to weep, And a time to laugh; A time to mourn, And a time to dance; A time to cast away stones, And a time to gather stones; A time to embrace, And a time to refrain from embracing; A time to gain, And a time to lose; A time to keep, And a time to throw away; A time to tear, And a time to sew; A time to keep silence, And a time to speak; A time to love, And a time to hate; A time of war, And a time of peace.
-King Solomon reveals that there is a set time; that everything on earth shall come into being for a particular purpose to be fulfilled. Time comes with responsibility which he describes as vanity & recognises that judgement shall fall on both the wicked & the righteous in due time. In his conclusion, he recognises the fear of God & keeping His commandments as man’s duty on earth (Ecc 12:13). Apostle Paul advices in Heb 4:16, that we should boldly go to the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy & find grace to help in time of need.
Fill us Holy Spirit with Your love so that we may obtain grace, wisdom & strength in due seasons to fulfill every purpose under heaven. Forgive us our trespasses, lead our walk in life to fear You & keep Your commandments. Reveal Your purposes for us & help us to accomplish them. We praise You & exult Your name. Amen
