“For everything there is a season, and a time for every matter under heaven:”
God decrees the end from the beginning and eventually time catches up with it.
Because He knows the end the wisdom is already there in the unfolding.
Our choices and actions or lack of them have impact because there are times of opportune windows where we have effect in an outcome.
This is why the writing can be on the wall and it can influence our decision making.
If we are shown it or perceive it.
Why it depends on how closely we are aligned to God to be knowing what His will would be.
What His heart is.
Failure to align will not stop His will but it may well delay it and have adverse consequences.
Falling by the wayside, not reaching it in our life time, pausing in blessings, generational implications.
Like sleeping on the journey and never reaching the optimal destination.
He has a due season.
He has an appointed time.
All heaven awaits His time.
“but they who wait for the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings like eagles; they shall run and not be weary; they shall walk and not faint.”
The illustration is of someone slumbering and not awakening to the spiritually anointed time despite the spectrum of the Holy Spirit surrounding them.
Four scriptures that come to mind:
“a time to be born, and a time to die; a time to plant, and a time to pluck up 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 together; a time to embrace, and a time to refrain from embracing; a time to seek, and a time to lose; a time to keep, and a time to cast away; a time to tear, and a time to sew; a time to keep silence, and a time to speak; a time to love, and a time to hate; a time for war, and a time for peace.”Ecclesiastes 3:2-8 ESV
“He has made everything beautiful in its time. Also, he has put eternity into man’s heart, yet so that he cannot find out what God has done from the beginning to the end.”Ecclesiastes 3:11 ESV
also that everyone should eat and drink and take pleasure in all his toil—this is God’s gift to man.”Ecclesiastes 3:13 ESV
“I perceived that whatever God does endures forever; nothing can be added to it, nor anything taken from it. God has done it, so that people fear before him. That which is, already has been; that which is to be, already has been; and God seeks what has been driven away.”Ecclesiastes 3:14-15 ESV
