According to one the wisest people to walk the face of the earth, there is a time for everything. Solomon learned this during his reign as king of Israel. Whether you are talking about planting, war or the harvest, God’s appointed season exists to maximize productivity.
There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under the heavens: Ecclesiastes 3:1.
Unfortunately, those individuals currently in a holding pattern, struggle to find hope. Any type of wait can be painful, but those who endure extended arid seasons tend to grow impatient, causing some to lose their faith. However, this is when you need to cling to the promise within Ecclesiastes.
And which now at his appointed season he has brought to light through the preaching entrusted to me by the command of God our Savior, Titus 1:3.
The apostle Paul refers to a different moment in time. This occurs when people are introduced to the Bible’s teaching. Whether its an evangelist, preacher or student of the Word, the Holy Spirit awakens souls. Thus, when the timing is right and hearts are ready to receive the gospel’s message, God’s appointed season has arrived.
