Is The Timing Right?
For everything there is a season, and a time for every matter under heaven: a time to be born, and a time to die; a time to plant, and a time to pluck up what is planted; a time to kill, and a time to heal; a time to break down, and a time to build up... —Ecclesiastes 3:1-ff
Timing is everything—might be the short synopsis of the wise man above. But this axiom is applicable in every area of our life (marriage, family, work, neighbors, and friendships) and also in each challenge in these areas. A man intuitively knows that what you do, how you do it, and when you do it are all incredibly important. But when we do it might trump what we do and how we do it. Time does dictate the need for specific action done rightly, and wise men do this well. Take time to consider one challenge you are facing today and journal about it. Then ask God to direct you on what, how, and when it will be time to address it.
JOURNAL THIS: God, today my one challenge is...
PRAY THIS: God, in this challenge, help me to know what to do, how to do it, and most importantly, when it needs to be done.
