TOPIC: DON’T MISS OUT YOUR DIVINE TIMING
TEXT: Ecclesiastes 9:11 “I returned, and saw under the sun, that the race is not to the swift nor the battle to the strong, neither yet bread to the wise, nor yet
riches to men of understanding, nor yet favour to men of skill; but time and chance happeneth to them all….”
The scripture talks about how time and chance will come together for every person. In Other words, there are moments Of favor that God has already
released into your future. If you’ll let that sink down into your heart today, it Will change your whole outlook on your future.
God’s Word tells us that being faster, stronger and wiser does not automatically make you a winner in life. No, it is actually being at the right place at the right time that causes you to receive blessings. God, Who holds time and chance in His hands, is the only one Who can put you at the right place at the right time.
Ruth is a perfect example, the moment Ruth told her mother-in-law that the God Of Israel would be her God; God took note Of it and made everything happen right for her. (Ruth 1:16) Ruth trusted God for favor when she went looking for a field in which to glean. The Bible tells us that ” she happened to come to the part Of the field belonging fo Boaz, who was Of the family Of Elimelech.
Of all the fields in Bethlehem, she happened to end up in Boaz field, and he was a close relative Of Elimelech, her father-in-law. All these right happenings could only mean that God had placed Ruth in the right place at the right time.
You may experience challenges and difficulties, setbacks, frustrating circumstances. All that doesn’t necessarily mean God is not in your matter.
Sometimes our own foolishness gets us in bad situations but if you trust God His Grace Will come through for you. Story Of Joseph in Gen 37….also is one Of a Divine placing and Divine timing.
Today, believe that God Will Take care Of You like Ruth , He Will place you at the right place at the right time where you Will meet the right people.
Believe that He knows where the great opportunities are and has all the contacts you need. Believe that He Will use the skills, talents and gifts you have. He knows where you need to be. He Will fulfil His plan for your life.
The advantage the believer has in this world Of uncertainties is that ALL THINGS ARE WORKING TOGETHER FOR YOUR GOOD.
