Theme: In His Timing — Ecclesiastes 3:1-11
God has a personal plan for each person within His larger plan. Sometimes this truth is hard to believe when we go through confusing or difficult circumstances. Just as there is a purpose for each piece within a large model of a plane or ship, there is purpose in every aspect of your life. God has a purpose for each of these details as the Master Planner. His Providence means his ability to see ahead. God lives in a constant present and sees all. He observes our faithfulness within our daily routine and how we handle the unexpected. We all experience good and bad in life, and all are tempted to doubt God’s providential plan. At those times, we must ground our heart and mind in God’s Word so we may continue to move forward. By grace, trust that God’s master plan is beautiful. Be satisfied by playing your piece faithfully, and let Him work out all the details as He wills.
