“To everything there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven…” ~Ecclesiastes 3:1-8
There is indeed a time and a season to all things, but how many times have we used this “truth” out of context, and as a means to hide behind our fear, allowing great opportunities to pass us by?
God does indeed have a plan for all of us. He has the perfect time set up for each and every one of us. I am not a believer in “coincidences” but “God-incidences,” however even with a beautifully orchestrated God-incidence if we are insistent upon finding every reason for why we shouldn’t make a move, we will miss our moment.
Some moments don’t come around twice. They are truly once-in-a-lifetime events.
So I encourage you to, yes, pray without ceasing. Seek the face of God and allow the wisdom of Christ Jesus to guide you in His perfect way and will in all that you do, but don’t let fear of waiting for the “perfect moment” to rob you of the moment at hand.
“If you’re waiting for the right time The right time will fly right by you Always planning, never moving Always praying, never doing It ain’t living if you’re just spending your life Waiting for the right time” ~Warren Barfield, The Right Time
There is no such thing as a perfect moment, only the right time and most of the time the right time happens when it looks impossible.
Many of us like to say we are waiting on God…but have you ever considered that maybe God is waiting on you?
The time is now! Step out on faith, and don’t let your “moment” pass you by.
For further encouragement, listen to this track by Warren Barefield, “The Right Time,” and go forward in faith into your moment!
