“For everything there is a season and a time for every activity under heaven.” Ecclesiastes 3:1
Each and every one of us revolves around the concept of time. It is a universal currency, a whole economy that flows at a constant rate. One must decide how to spend it and once spent, it cannot be regained whence there is a time for everything as it says in the verse above. There is a time for work and a time for rest. A time for silence and a time for talk. A time for pain and a time for healing. A time to read this and a time to share.
God exists outside of the confines of time, yet He too has set a time for everything. His feasts are set at an appointed time and His deeds are likewise set at the perfect time. In the book of Esther, God raised up Esther to be queen of Persia at a time when Haman plotted to kill all the Jews. Queen Esther, on behalf of her cousin and her people, the Jews, went before the king and pleaded for the life of her people. God has placed her there at just the right time so that His people may live. “For if you remain silent at this time, relief and deliverance will arise for the Jews from another place—but you and your father’s house will perish. Who knows whether you have attained royal status for such a time as this?” (Esther 4:14). One could say that she was in the right place at the right time, which is true, but this was by no means a coincidence. It was by God’s power that she was placed in that position so that she could win the favor of the king, and ultimately save God’s people. God still uses people today. Maybe you are in the right place right now, and in His timing, you could be called to do something for His Kingdom.
We may not really ever know when His timing is or see it until it is upon us or until we look back, but it is perfect. We may not understand why we are in the place that we are in or why things are taking so long, but God has a reason for it all. He sees well beyond what we can and already has everything plotted out. “He has made everything beautiful in its time. Moreover, He has set eternity in their heart—yet without the possibility that humankind can ever discover the work that God has done from the beginning to the end,” (Ecc. 3:11).
Sometimes we can grow impatient or even anxious with His timing; however, we have to be patient. After all, things take time. Bread dough needs time to rise before it can be baked or else your bread will turn out rather flat instead of full and fluffy. So too with others things in life; they need time in order to meet expectations.
As humans, we can’t see what lies in the future. We could take a guess, but there is no way of knowing what will happen in the future nor will we know until it happens. But God does. He is eternal with no beginning or end. He existed before time and will still exist after time. He knows of what has happened, what is happening, and what will happen, for He ordained it all. He is not blind to what is going on in our lives. His plans for us go beyond what we can imagine and His timing is always impeccable. We have to be patient, for He will reward our patience. “Adonai is good to those who wait for Him, to the soul that seeks Him. It is good to wait quietly for the salvation of Adonai,” (Lam. 3:25-26).
