Episode 431


1 There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under the heavens: 2 a time to be born and a time to die, a time to plant and a time to uproot, 3 a time to kill and a time to heal, a time to tear down and a time to build, 4 a time to weep and a time to laugh, a time to mourn and a time to dance, 5 a time to scatter stones and a time to gather them, a time to embrace and a time to refrain from embracing, 6 a time to search and a time to give up, a time to keep and a time to throw away, 7 a time to tear and a time to mend, a time to be silent and a time to speak, 8 a time to love and a time to hate, a time for war and a time for peace. 

Ecclesiastes 3:1-8


I love this small passage. A note from a man who had experienced it all. Someone who had all the money and power a man could have, and here he was at the end of his life writing about what matters.


I read this, and it always speaks to me. How many of us know that there is a time for everything. A lot of the time, things don’t work out in our timing. We wish things would be/or would have worked out differently.


But to be honest, the hardest part for me has always been understanding when the time was appropriate to do some things. How do we know it’s a time for healing, how do we know when it’s a time for dancing, and how do we know it’s a time for planting or plucking? When do we know when to unroot?


I was thinking, and I think it comes from true wisdom. Understanding when God directs us.


Proverbs 1:7 says The fear of the LORD is the beginning of knowledge, but fools despise wisdom and instruction.


To gain wisdom, we must truly love and fear our father. That is when we will dive deeper into the spirit, and He will always direct our steps. He gives us the wisdom to do the things as stated above.



Father God, we thank you for your love. Today we look for ways to grow deeper in our wisdom. We know it is in our wisdom that we can make the right decisions for our lives, the right times to act, and the right times to rest. Lord, you know us individually, and we ask that you guide us. It is in your holy name that we pray, Amen!
