A Time for Everything
Everyone is waiting for this tribulation to end in peace. All eyes are looking towards heaven, seeking help from the Lord the Creator of the universe, the majestic ruler of our world.
We have a message from the words of the Bible. In the book of Ecclesiastes, Solomon wrote clear verses that perfectly apply to what we are going through. The verses say:
“There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under the heavens: a time to be born and a time to die, a time to plant and a time to uproot, a time to kill and a time to heal, a time to tear down and a time to build, a time to weep and a time to laugh, a time to mourn and a time to dance, a time to scatter stones and a time to gather them, a time to embrace and a time to refrain from embracing, a time to search and a time to give up, a time to keep and a time to throw away a time to tear and a time to mend, a time to be silent and a time to speak, a time to love and a time to hate, a time for war and a time for peace. What do workers gain from their toil? I have seen the burden God has laid on the human race.” (Ecclesiastes 3:1-11)
So let us pray to the almighty God, who is in control of our times and who can change every situation – have mercy on us! Save us in the midst of this hard tribulation for you are our God, our hope, our fortified fortress and the promise keeper… All things work together for the good of his children and his people. We ask this in the name of Jesus Christ. Amen
