Text: Esther 4: 14. For if thou altogether holdest thy peace at this time, then shall there enlargement and deliverance arise to the Jews from another place; but thou and thy father’s house shall be destroyed: and who knoweth whether thou art come to the kingdom for such a time as this?
In everything, there is a time and season. Ecclesiastes 3.
A man that has failed to understand what to do at the current time of his life, will always live below the average of his purpose.
Understanding the current time we find ourselves help us to do the right thing.
The Bible says, that the race is not for the swift nor the battle for the strong nor bread for the wise but time and chance happens to them all. Meaning that people who understand the essence of their time, enjoy the bread (wealth) and the victories of life. Ecclesiastes 9:11.
Successful men work under same 24hrs as unsuccessful men do.
Making positive use of every opportunity that time gives, brings us to the perfect plans of God for our lives.
As I journey through life academically, I’ve seen a lot of young people, with strong financial backing from their sponsors, misusing, joking with the time meant for their studies.
And on the other hand are another set of young people praying for a financial support to further their academics. What an irony of life.
One man failing to understand the academic timing of his destiny with all the opportunity and chances he has and another man who understands the time but lacks the chance and opportunity.
A failure to understand our timing will give us wrong priorities.
The time for study is not a time for fun.
The time for war is not a time for peace.
The time for business is not the time to entertain friends and many other activities under the sun that we wrongly place.
Even in the house of God, many believers are yet to understand that the timing of God, Is a time of transformation and impartation, you see them not participating in all of the spiritual activities and altar instructions.
Our Bible text tells us that Esther was not just made the queen but it was God’s plan to bring Esther to the palace, to save the entire Jewish race from the evil plots of Haman.
We must understand that there is no limitation to the works of God.
Even tho Esther had misused her time and opportunity, deliverance would have surely come up from another source but it would be very disastrous for her and her household.
When we fail to utilize God’s given time, He will raise another but it’ll be very disastrous for our life and destiny.
God also wants us not to use our time for self-benefits alone but most importantly for kingdom benefits.
So we must redeem the time in this evil days. Ephesians 5:16.
We must also do the works of God while it is day and always remember that when God gives us more, much more is required. John 9:4
24hrs a day can yield great impact. (It was the same day of Pentecost that Peter won 3000 souls for Christ. Acts 2:14-41).
Make good use of your time child of God.
Set your goals well.
Time waits for no one.
