I woke up this morning with a powerful observation and which pushed me to ask the question I used as the title “WHO’S YOUR TIMEKEEPER ANYWAY? To start with, there’s this okra plant in our garden which I can say, has been there for several months and wasn’t making any remarkable progress for a very long time. One time, we almost cut t down and use the space for something else but whatever stopped us remains a mystery. Take note that our conclusion was only based on what we see not what is (it’s a specie and that’s its nature). All of a sudden, this okra plant became very productive almost overnight with an exceptional harvest. Just today we harvested about half a bucket, like seriously. Why am I sharing this with you? So you know Father God alone is your timekeeper. Has it ever occurred to you that you’re so unique that everything about your life is unique to you, your family, friends and even your experiences? No wonder it’s written in Ecclesiastes 3:1 “There is time for everything and a season for every activity under heaven”. We’ve never seem to notice that plants never miss their season to bloom unless we alter the course, how does that happen? Father God alone is our timekeeper.
Ephesians 1:10 (KJV) “That in the dispensation of the fullness of times he might gather together in one all things in Christ, both which are in heaven and which are on earth; even in him;” There was even a time when the Father sent His only begotten Son Jesus Christ to redeem mankind from sin and more. You may not be where you wanted to be but you’re not where you used to be. Many things about your life may not be gong as you had anticipated, do not lose hope for God is faithful and He’s true, he’ll never fail you. You may have your dream job right now, or you may not be marred yet though you’re of marriageable age, you may not have children of your own yet or you may feel stuck somewhere. You may even think your life is regressing instead of advancing, brace yourself for God and father of our Lord Jesus Christ is your only timekeeper. Do not pressure yourself because everyone is making progress except you, just play by your own clock, one set to your personal time zone. Ecclesiastes 3:11 Amplified version “He has made everything beautiful in His time. He also has planted eternity in men’s hearts and minds [a divinely implanted sense of a purpose working through the ages which nothing under the sun but God alone can satisfy], yet so that men cannot find out what God has done from the beginning to the end”. God is never late, He’s always on time and in His plan you’re perfectly where he wants you to be. Rejoice you’ll never fail because you’ll n the One who is above all and through all. You’re a masterpiece, unprecedented specie.
You’re blessed beyond measure in Christ!
