THE MEANING OF LIFE: PART 3 OF 12

                            A CHAPTER BY CHAPTER STUDY OF THE BOOK OF
                                           ECCLESIASTES......CHAPTER 3

                                                   "The God of Timing"
You hear this all the, well, time that "Timing is Everything"! Well, it really is and our Great God is a God of Timing.  He has chronological time in His Hands. He has time and season planned perfectly, also and if we walk in that obedience and under that Authority He has given the Son, we can never fail in this life. I did not say we will never have trials and tribulation. What we mean is, if you are so tuned into and seeking for what God has in store for your life, you would desire to press into what He said in 66 books of the Bible, from cover to cover, then obey what the Spirit is saying between every one of those pages.

Timing IS everything. Timing is crucial is you're a musician. My eldest son, who bears my name, was a percussionist for the Youth Symphony which was the high school division of the Illinois Symphony for five years. When he first started, he needed to not just show up for every practice to come in at the right time with the cymbals or cowbell or chimes or timpany but he had to LISTEN to the discipline of the Conductor, who is literally the head coach of the Symphony. After months of this, when they performed at a concert etc, it flowed beautifully. The timing was spot on! God is our conductor. He wants the best for us and at best, the least we can do is recognize HOW He works, and to do so, we must be tuned into the Holy Spirit and how HE, the SPIRIT OF GOD, wants us to fulfill our destiny, walking in His marvelous light. We do this through prayer, study and fasting when He calls you to it.

The teaching on the video below, is primarily on the major theme of chapter 3 - the God of Timing. Please read this portion, watch the video and then read the rest of Ecclesiastes 3. Amen.

Ecclesiastes 3

New American Standard Bible (NASB)

A Time for Everything

3 There is an appointed time for everything. And there is a time for every [a]event under heaven—
A time to give birth and a time to die;
A time to plant and a time to uproot what is planted.
time to kill and a time to heal;
A time to tear down and a time to build up.
A time to weep and a time to laugh;
A time to mourn and a time to dance.
A time to throw stones and a time to gather stones;
A time to embrace and a time to shun embracing.
A time to search and a time to give up as lost;
A time to keep and a time to throw away.
A time to tear apart and a time to sew together;
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 profit is there to the worker from that in which he toils? 10 I have seen the task which God has given the sons of men with which to occupy themselves.
