Do you know what time zone you are in? Do you know that God is the masterpiece of timing?  Your God says that there is a season, a time for every purpose under heaven! Wow! As Christians we need to make every effort to work according to God’s plan–his timing. Where we are in our lives is not an accident. Take some time and expose yourself a little. Tell yourself a bitter truth about where you are in your life.  Read and digest these verses, get a paper and a pen to write down some of your questions. If you do it right, and accept the revelation as well as apply the revelation, you will have a change and a victory.
 
“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 sow; 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.” (Ecclesiastes 3:1-8 NKJV)
 
We have been programmed to destiny… your trial must come to past. Our experiences in our life is a step towards our destiny–God’s purpose. When you lose something there is a time you will regain it. Whatever we are going through is a blessing if you believe in Christ. There is an expiration date on your suffering, but your blessing will last a lifetime! There is a time we must sow a seed to reap the harvest later. Jeremiah 29:11 says, For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.  

 
Do you still allow your past hurts to play a vital role in your present life? If you are holding on to past hurts, you’re holding on to time. You can destroy your promising future by holding on to your painful past . If God wants us to cast our burdens to Him, our hurts should be part of it too! Forgive, and let it go today, so that you can experience freedom within.
 
What lifestyle or habits in your life effects your Christian growth? This is your time to tear it down. Whatever you left behind to serve God, be reassured that He will give you back a HUNDREDFOLD! Amen. Weeping may endure for a night, but you are promised an everlasting joy in the morning. Do not be deceived, God knows what you are going through. The question is, do you know the Lord of Joy and Peace – Jesus Christ (Jehovah Shalom)?
 
Scripture of the day: As has just been said “Today, if you hear his voice do not harden your hearts as you did in the rebellion.” ~ Hebrew 3:15
