Perfect Timing, Perfect Location
– Acts 17:26
Watching a documentary on modern warfare it became apparent that the brave warriors of David’s time would have been absolutely obliterated if our “hardware” were to be deployed against them.
All their courage would mean nothing when faced with weapons from a different “future” age and time. Think about this for a moment and you will realize that we really need to pay attention to the “age” we are in. It is not wise to look at the past and say they were better days and long for them.
The truth is that revelation and spiritual provision is a function of the “age” or “dispensation” one belongs to. No wonder Paul said in so as anointed as Moses was, some things had to remain “hidden” from him, not because He did not have the right relationship with God, but because he lived in a different age. No wonder Daniel was commanded to seal up the revelation until the right time. Daniel 12:4 …But you, Daniel, shut up the words and seal the book, until the time of the end.…
So what is the point in all of this? It is that we should rather desire to access the mystery, resource and revelation of our time than wasting time wishing we were born in a different age. Rather than regret the circumstance of your birth, you ought to set your heart to God and receive like Paul your own revelation and secret for dominion.
Think about our scripture reading again, God has planned what age (time/dispensation) we all should be born in and has determined the extent of our enlargement, so go to Him, seeking to conquer every land (opportunity & achievement) allotted to you.
Stop comparing yourself with anyone born at any time. Seek out the God of secrets (Deuteronomy 29:29 -The secret things belong to the Lord our God, but the things revealed belong to us: Daniel 2:47 …Of a truth…your God is …a revealer of secrets).
Enjoy your “age”. It is the best place for you to be right now.
I give thanks to the all-knowing God for keeping me alive at a time such as this. I am not an accident of nature. I am an arrow in the hand of a mighty God. I arise and shine for this is my season, this is my time for exploits. I will succeed at life in Jesus Name. Amen.
