“Yet God has made everything beautiful for its own time. He has planted eternity in the human heart, but even so, people cannot see the whole scope of God’s work from beginning to end.” Ecclesiastes 3:11
We all experience a variety of seasons in every area of our life, even in your relations. Maybe for the last ten or fifteen years you were best friends with a person. You enjoyed spending that time together, but now it’s a new season. Of course, you can still be friends, but maybe you can’t spend as much time together, you’ve changed your job, your moved to other cities or the kids aren’t in the same school. You realize that this particular season is over. But just as one season passes, there is always a new season that follows.
Perhaps God will bring you news friends which share more of your interests, friends that will inspire and encourage you in the things of God. The scripture says “everything is beautiful in its own time”.
Everything is as God made it; not as it appears to us. We have so much in our hearts the thoughts and cares of worldly things, that we have neither time nor spirit to see God’s hand in them. The world has not only gained possession of the heart, but has formed thoughts against the beauty of God’s works. We mistake if we think we were born for ourselves; no, it is our business to do good things in this life, which is short and uncertain. We have but little time to be doing good things, therefore we should redeem time. Satisfaction with God is having faith that all things work together for good to them that love him. God doeth all, that men should fear before him.
God has made everything beautiful for its own time but it’s sometimes hard to see beauty in tragedy. You may have disappointments like a broken relationship or just failed in your exams or lost your job … and I know how painful it can be. But you just need to pick yourself up and believe with confidence that God has a better way, better people or things for you for the new season to come. Be grateful for the beauty of the former season but recognize that the former season is over. God is in control of everything and as you accept the changing season as you stay connected with Your God having faith in Him, He will open the doors of opportunity for you. Put your trust and Hope in Him only and He will bring you the divine connections needed to fulfill your dreams in a better and brighter way than you ever thought possible!
Prayer: Lord I’m grateful for everything you’ve done in the past. I’m so thankful for the former season but now I’m opening my mind and my spirit to the things that you will do for me in this new season. You will bring to my life new friends, new divine connections and a great favor. I decide to see the beauty on this time and I give you all the praise being full of Hope for a glorious season.
Quote: God is in control of everything. As you accept the changing season, God will make for you everything beautiful as He will open the new doors of opportunity.
