There is always a best time for everything. I have always had certain days for different things and because I was a stay at home mom most of the time, I had days for laundry, ironing, baking, cleaning and it seemed every day was full with four children to care for. I loved my duties, I don't ever remember complaining because I was too busy or tired of doing them. I still have a certain day to do laundry, a certain time to make my bed up clean, certain times to vaccumn, I guess it is called organization. I have always loved to organize, organize dressers, cupboards, pantries, if something needs organized I love to do it.
Well, did you know that God loves things organized and has certain times for certain things, I guess that is where I get it, it must be a gift from Him. I am kind of getting off the subject just a little so let's get back in line here.
I have been thinking a lot lately about the time factor in our lives. I will be 83 in four months and a lot of people never reach my age, for some reason their lives have been cut short and I was thinking of a verse in 2 Corinthians 6:2 "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." We do not know just when our time will come so don't you think it is a good thing to seriously think about whether we are ready to meet our maker, God says, 'NOW is the day of salvation', NOW is the best time to secure our salvation, because we do not know what tomorrow will bring.
Here is our admonition, I am fully aware that we do not like to think about the time when we will lay down our life, I don't mind thinking about it anymore because as we have been studying, I know that my life is hid with Christ in God and as long as I keep it there, I am safe. But listen to this verse.
Matthew 6:33,34 "But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness and all these things shall be added to you. Therefore do not worry about tomorrow for tomorrow will worry about its own things. Sufficient for the day is its own trouble." The Best Time Is NOW.
Isaiah 55:6 "Seek the Lord while He may be found, call upon Him while He is near." Are you a procrastinator? Now is the Best Time to seek the Lord, don't procrastinate any longer because Now is the day of salvation, Now is the time to seek Him while He may be found and while He is near.
Organize your life in such a way that God is put first in everything. First thing in the morning, seek Him, it is the Best time to do it, before you get tangled up in your days duties. Seek Him all day long as you go about your duties, His Spirit is your Guide and Counselor. Is there anything Better than this?
Now is the Best Time, won't you give your life to Jesus just now, while there is still time. Don't put it off any longer, make Him first and last and best in everything you do and you will be ready when He comes at His Second Coming or whether you fall asleep in Jesus now. NOW IS THE BEST TIME. Grandma Joan
