“He has made everything beautiful in its time.” Ecclesiastes 3:11a
No one can really fathom God’s timing, our God does not measure time as we do. He knows all about our expectation but He makes all things beautiful in His own time.
We’re trapped in time with all the unfulfilled expectations that the passing of time brings to us. And if this world is all there is, we’re in trouble. But skeptical Solomon asserts that God can make things beautiful when appropriate to do so. He has eternity to work with, and He has given us a curiosity about our tomorrows, about what He might do with our lives. While God has not given us every detail of what our tomorrows will be like, He can and will recreate something beautiful out of the brokenness of our lives.
God knows about all our experiences and reality, He knows that we don’t always “get it right.” Our timing is off at times. We pluck when we should plant. We kill when we should be celebrating birth. We laugh when we should be weeping. We speak when we should be silent. But God knows the proper time. God knows when it’s time for us to be born and He knows when it’s time for us die. God knows when we need to cry and when we need to laugh. God knows when we need to mourn and when we need to dance. God knows when we need to be silent and when we need to speak. God knows everything about the human experience. God knows all the minute details of our lives and He also knows why everything happens. God sees the little picture of the moments and the details of our lives and He also sees the big picture of how everything unfolds in the light of eternity
God makes life beautiful in His time. Those who live a surrendered life according to God’s time and schedule will ultimately lead a life of beauty, wait on Him and all things shall work together for your good and events will turn out beautiful.
