Sunday Devotional – He has made everything beautiful . . .

He has made everything beautiful in its time. Also He has put eternity in their hearts, except that no one can find out the work that God does from beginning to end. ~ Ecclesiastes 3:11 NKJV

A man’s gift makes room for him, and brings him before great men. ~ Proverbs 18:16 NKJV

Becoming good at something takes time – and with writing, it seems to take forever. I can go back and read things I wrote a year ago that I thought were pretty good then, and find terrible errors in them now. That’s part of learning and growing, though – hopefully we keep getting better!

God has given each of us a purpose, and He has given us the tools to fulfill that purpose.

Let’s not forget that we are always working toward Eternity, though. We may not see the whole pattern here, we may not understand why different things happen. God knows, though, and His will prevails when His servants submit to it.

God’s law has been written on our hearts – every person knows how to find the Truth. When God makes us beautiful in our time, He causes all of our gifts and talents and purpose to come together at the right moment to influence the soul that we were born to witness to – whether it is only one, or whether it is millions.

Preach the word! Be ready in season and out of season. Convince, rebuke, exhort, with all longsuffering and teaching. For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine, but according to their own desires, because they have itching ears, they will heap up for themselves teachers; and they will turn their ears away from the truth and be turned aside to fables. ~ 2 Timothy 4:2-4
