There is an appointed time for everything. And there is a time for every event under heaven– Ecclesiastes 3:1 NASB
How many of you watch the game show Wheel of Fortune? Growing up and even now, I still love watching it. If I ever get selected I know I would win lol.(And yes, I have applied) I realized this morning that our lives are not very different from that show. Of course, life for believers is not completely chance. But everyone will have their turn.
According to the verse above, there is an appointed time for everything. Not a few, some, many, or most, but everything. This brings me comfort because the enemy has tried to discourage me to some of my dreams–marriage, children and true fulfillment–lately. Like the game show, every person will get their opportunity to experience God’s blessings. To everything that God has promised you, there is an appropriate time and season. Do not fall victim to Satan and his schemes to attack your faith!
What’s even more beautiful about this analogy is that since every player gets a round that they start, your season will surely come. We all go from planting to harvesting, if we keep pressing in prayer and endure the challenges that come to test our stock. Trust that as long as you are watering your seeds with the Word of God, you will most certainly reap a bountiful harvest. Trust that your ‘prize’ will not be forfeited!
He will be like a tree firmly planted by streams of water, Which yields its fruit in its season And its leaf does not wither; And in whatever he does, he prospers. Psalm 1:3
