God’s Time

“To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven” (Ecclesiastes 3:1). Because everything has a season, nothing (at least on earth) lasts forever.

A Convenient Season

“Felix trembled, and answered, Go thy way for this time; when I have a convenient season, I will call for thee” (Acts 24:25). Felix, a Roman governor, was interested in Paul and his message. He evidently knew a great deal about Jesus. He knew about His crucifixion. He knew that... Read more →

Refuse and Choose

“By faith Moses, when he was come to years, refused to be called the son of Pharaoh’s daughter; choosing rather to suffer affliction with the people of God, than to enjoy the pleasures of sin for a season” (Hebrews 11:24-25). All of a sudden Moses turned his back upon what... Read more →

Seasons of Suffering

“Ye greatly rejoice, though now for a season, if need be, ye are in heaviness through manifold temptations” (1 Peter 1:6). All that God plans and performs in this life is in view of what He has in store for us in heaven. He is preparing us for the life and... Read more →

Reaping in Due Season

“Let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not” (Galatians 6:9). Sowing will bring a harvest. No matter what we choose to do with our lives, there are always consequences. Paul makes certain we understand this when he says in... Read more →
