Seasons And Time

To everything there is a season, a time for every purpose under Heaven.

 Ecclesiastes 3:1

The word ‘Ecclesiastes’ tells us about the author of this book. This word means ‘someone who gathers a group of people together’. So, the author of this book was an official who had responsibility for other people. He was leading his people as they searched for the truth about God. There are various English translations of this word: Preacher; Teacher; Philosopher or wise person. This book was written by Solomon, and Ecclesiastes 3, is a poem about time. The poem begins with a general statement that there is a right time for everything.

In an effort to face the challenges of life, we often turn to Solomon’s words: “To everything there is a season, a time for every purpose under Heaven” (Eccl 3:1). But we readily admit that we would rather laugh than weep, dance than mourn, and gain than lose (v 4,6).

Yet we know that as we embrace the lessons and opportunities of every season that comes to us, we find that “God is our refuge and strength” (PS 46:1)

Whatever season we are in, it’s always the season to trust in Him.

Bible Reading

Ecclesiastes 3:1-8.


Thank You, Lord God, that all things are subject to your command and authority. The seasons change, but Your abiding love changes not. Help me Lord through all the changing scenes of Life, for I ask this in Jesus name. Amen.
