The Messenger: Pastor Davis The Message:
Text: Ecclesiastes 3:1
We do not live a life of random events. We serve a God of seasons, and every aspect of our lives is like a season. There is a reason for the seasons and a purpose for the process. You may not understand today or the next day, but eventually God will reveal why you went through what you went through. God has it under control. “To everything there is a season, a time for every purpose under heaven.” (Ecclesiastes 3:1)
Sometimes, we get into things and do not know how to get out of it. We have to learn how to number our days and decide “what stuff to worry about and what stuff not to worry about.” We may never fully under-stand what God has planned for us, but our attitude toward life changes when we learn to see good times and bad times as opportunities to grow closer to our Heavenly Father. As we go through the seasons of life, the valleys of despair and the mountain tops, we must put our trust in God. Knowing that God is in control should bring us hope. When we face rough times, we’ve just stepped into a new season. There is a purpose for the process. We just have to get back in God’s rhythm, get back in step with God, and He will help us overcome every obstacle.
When we have the right rhythm and get in step with God, we recognize and appreciate that each season prepares us for the next season. We become more loving, more thankful and more hopeful.
Do you feel the music? Are you in rhythm?
