Message of the Day: To Everything, There Is A Season, A Time Appointed By God!

“To everything there is a season,
A time for every purpose under heaven…” (Ecclesiastes 3:1, NKJV)

The Preacher shows that we are subject to times and changes over which we have no control, and contrasts this state with God’s eternity and sovereignty. God sovereignly predetermines all of life’s activities. He considered the ceaseless toil and repetition in the natural world and decided that life was useless. Now he considers the fixed order of events in the world. It appears to him that everything happens at the time God has decided it will happen. In view of this, all human effort to improve life is useless. People can change nothing.

We beings may have a desire to know God and the realities of the unseen eternal world, but we still cannot understand God’s ways. We may be confident that God does everything perfectly according to his plan, but we are also frustrated because we do not know what that plan is. We can only accept whatever God sends us and find pleasure in it. We can change nothing; events will go on repeating themselves according to God’s fixed purposes. Our realization of this keeps us in a state of fear before God. (Ecclesiastes 3:1-15)
