In the book of Ecclesiastes, we read about the revelation of God’s purposes to the hearts of human beings.
The third chapter begins, “To everything there is a season, a time for every purpose under heaven” (Ecclesiastes 3:1 NKJV).
God has not only given you a purpose, but, according to this Scripture, He has also determined the time for that purpose to be accomplished. There is “a time for every purpose.” Whatever you were born to do, God has assigned a season in which it is to be done—and that season is the duration of your life.
Do you see why it is crucial for you to know the vision that is in your heart? Your purpose can be fulfilled only during the time you are given on earth to accomplish it.
Within this season called life, God has also appointed specific times for portions of your purpose to be accomplished. As you pursue the dream God has given you, He will bring it to fruition during the period of your life when it is meant to be completed.
As Ecclesiastes 3:11 says, “He has made everything beautiful in its time.”
Some people wish they had been born during a different time in history. Yet if you had been born a thousand years ago, or even a hundred years ago, you would have been miserable because you would have been living in the wrong time to complete your purpose and vision. You were born at the right time to accomplish your vision during your generation.
Father, how awesome that You have chosen a particular place and time for me to be born and to live on this earth. I will confess in faith that I have been born at the right time to accomplish my vision. In Jesus’ name, amen.
Thought: You were born at the right time to accomplish your vision.
