To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven.
– Ecclesiastes 3:1
Thoughts on Today’s Verse…
When faced with difficulties or adversity, we always ask God to make a way out for us so that we can get out of difficulties. But we always ignore to seekand wait for His time in the midst of suffering. When Joseph was sold to Egypt by his brothers, and later put into prison because of being framed by his master’s wife, his fate was so miserable in people’s eyes. However, Joseph believed in God, he lived uprightly. At last, he became the prime minister of Egypt and saved his family from famine. There is God’s will in everything. To obey and wait is the attitude that we must take when trials come upon us.
God says, “First you must learn to wait; then you must learn to seek; then you must learn to submit. ‘Waiting’ means waiting for the time of God, awaiting the people, events, and things that He has arranged for you, waiting for His will to gradually reveal itself to you. ‘Seeking’ means observing and understanding God’s thoughtful intentions for you through the people, events, and things that He has laid out, understanding the truth through them, understanding what humans must accomplish and the ways they must keep, understanding what results God means to achieve in humans and what accomplishments He means to attain in them. ‘Submitting,’ of course, refers to accepting the people, events, and things that God has orchestrated, accepting His sovereignty and, through it, coming to know how the Creator dictates man’s fate, how He supplies man with His life, how He works the truth into man. All things under God’s arrangements and sovereignty obey natural laws, and if you resolve to let God arrange and dictate everything for you, you should learn to wait, you should learn to seek, you should learn to submit. This is the attitude that every person who wants to submit to God’s authority must take, the basic quality that every person who wants to accept God’s sovereignty and arrangements must possess. To hold such an attitude, to possess such a quality, you must work harder; and only thus can you enter into the true reality.”
