THE APPOINTED TIME OF THE LORD

There is a time for everything and a season for every activity under the heavens.(Ecclesiastes 3:1) That is to say there is time there are times,there is season there are seasons. But there is an appointed time which God alone determines. Because this appointed time is under the control of God Almighty, extraordinary, marvelous,wonderful, miracles breakthroughs happens at such a time. But who can wait for such a time. Do you have issue(s) that has to do with time? Are you of the age of getting married and no man is showing up or no money to put things in place and you are counting months ,years that has gone by. Have you ever thought of the appointed time. In Genesis Chapter 3 after God has created man(Adam) and put him in the garden of Eden to tend it with his companion Eve. They disobeyed God and were driven out of the garden. Man fell from grace to grass from son to slave,from righteousness to unrighteousness. But because of the unfailing love of God for mankind he look for a means to reconcile with fallen man.' But when the set time had fully come, He sent his son born of woman,born under the law,to redeem those under the law that we might receive adoption to sonship' (Gal.4:4-5). At other times it may or may not happen, but at the appointed time what is foretold must come to pass. In Genesis Chapter.18 God visited Abraham and his wife in the form of three men. Where is your wife?, they ask him. "There in the tent" he said. Then one of them said ,' i will surely return to you about this time next year, and sarah your wife will have a son'. (Gen:18:9-10) Though they doubted but because the one that has control over time has spoken, at the appointed time it came to pass. In the gospel according to Saint Luke there was a woman in a town known as Nain who had an only son and eventually the son died. The community felt it just as the woman but they could do nothing rather than to simpathise with her. No wonder they were following her to bury the dead son. But when they got to the gate of the town, Jesus and his disciples met them. when the lord saw her his heart went out to her and he said "Don't cry"(Luke7:13) That is to say Jesus had empathy towards her not just being sympathetic. He felt her pain and did something to alleviate her pain because that is the appointed time. Gal:7:14-15, Then he went up and touched the brier they were carrying him on and the bearer stood still. He said"Young man, i say to you get up". The dead man sat up and began to talk and Jesus gave him back to her.The brierer stoped when the brier was touch by Jesus because that touch was an extraordinary one,it was a touch that makes a diffrence and also the appointed time has come. He spoke to the dead man 'get up' it was so . "For my thoughts are not your thoughts neither are your ways my ways", declared the lord. "As the heavens are higher than the earth so are my ways higher than your ways and your thoughts than my thoughts". (Isaiah55:8-9) Our timing is contrary to God's timing. God is never late .He is always on time if only you and i will wait for the appointed time and listen to his voice and follow his instruction greater things will happen to us. 44452664
