THE SECRET OF TIME


THE SECRET OF TIME

To everything there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven:  A time to be born and a time to die; a time to plant, and a time to pluck up that which is planted
Ecclesiastes 3:1
Knowing the secret of time is not a question of your mood, your feelings, or your attitude.  It is first of all asking God to give you the wisdom on when to plant, what to plant, when to wait, and when to harvest.  Each of these is a period of time and a process.
What you do with your time, with your friends, and with your attitudes will determine what will come at your harvest time.
Time is all about choices.  Every day, in every moment, you get to exercise choices that will determine whether or not you will have a good harvest, no harvest, or a bad harvest.
The Secret of Time is about the little things you do each day that don't look dramatic, or don't look like they matter, or make a difference.  But successful Christians do what others are not willing to do.
A simple positive action repeated over time can cause you to have a life full of God's blessings.
Many people get frustrated and quit planting when they don't see immediate results..  You have to stay in the process long enough to reap a harvest of blessings from the Lord for your good actions.  And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not  (Galatians 6:9).
If you take a penny and double it each day you would be amazed at the results. On day one you would have a penny.  On day two you would have 2 cents, day 3 you would have 4 cents, on day four you would have 8 cents.  By the end of week two, you would have $163.84.  On day 28, you would have passed one million dollars. On day 30, you would have over 5 million dollars. If you take a penny and double it each day for thirty-one days you would have $10,737,418.  To accomplish anything worth accomplishing, to create success, to achieve your dreams, you don't have to do impossible extraordinary, superhuman things.  But you do have to do something.  You have to start with a penny.
It is the same way in your spiritual life.  You start with a prayer today, or a kind deed, or read 10 verses out of the Bible.  At the end of the year you will have prayed 365 prayers, done 365 kind deeds, and read 3,650 verses.  There are only 7,957 verses in the New Testament, so you could read it through twice in one year.
A positive philosophy of life based on Biblical principles will turn into a positive attitude, which turns into positive actions, which turns into positive results, which turns into receiving the blessings from  your Heavenly Father.
Getting a successful harvest requires for a person to stay in the process long enough to  get the job done.  When you plant good seed  you will not see the results immediately.  
Let us look at some good seed.  Therefore as the elect of God, holy and beloved, put on tender mercies, kindness, humility, meekness, long-suffering; being patient with one another, and forgiving one another.  If anyone has been hurt by another, even as Christ has forgiven you, so you must also do.  (Colossians 3:13-13).
Don't judge your harvest by the evidence of your eyes, you won't see the results over night.  This is where faith comes in. The just shall live by faith Romans 1:17.  You live right, you treat other people like Jesus would treat them, and wait for the harvest of good things.    
Some day doesn't exist.  There are no big breaks in your future.  Your ship is not coming in.  Your ship is already here, docked and waiting.  You already have everything you need to achieve everything you want.  You just can't see it with your human eyes.  I can do all things through Christ which gives me strength.  (Philippians 4:13).  You have to start looking through your eyes of faith and plant the right seeds.
Planting good seeds is an act of faith.  If you make the right choices and take the right actions, over time you will have success.  If you plant the wrong seeds, your harvest will be one of disappointment and hurt to you and to those you love and to those who love you.  You have to choose what kind of seed you want to plant.
No success is immediate, nor is any failure.  it is determined by the seeds you plant.  Some people today are reaping a harvest of difficulty and pain because of seeds planted a long time ago.  
Today is a good time to start planting seeds that will bring you blessings from the God who loves you very much.  
The sooner you plant your good seeds, the sooner you will start harvesting.   But He cannot 
help you without you helping Him.  There is a spiritual law that says: Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a person sows, that shall they also reap. (Galatians: 6:7).  
This law also involves how much you sow. But this I say, He 
who sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and he who sows bountifully will also reap bountifully.    (2 Corinthians 9:6).
Getting a successful harvest requires for a person to stay in the process long enough to  get the job done.  When you plant good seed  you will not see the results immediately.  Here are some good seeds to plant.
Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever things are true, whatever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatever things are pure, whatever things are lovely, whatever things that are of a good report, think on these things.  (Philippians 4:8).
There is a time to plant, and that time is today.  Today is the time to give your heart and mind to the God that loves you.  For He says: In an acceptable time I have heard you.  And in the day of salvation  I have helped you.  Behold, now is the accepted  time, behold, now is the day of salvation.  (2 Corinthians 6:2).
