Pearls of Wisdom - God's Appointed Time
Chosen by God!
Kairos (καιρός) is an Ancient Greek word meaning the right, critical or opportune moment. In the New Testament, "kairos" means "the appointed time in the purpose of God," the time when God acts. "Kairos" (used 86 times in the New Testament) refers to an opportune time, a "moment" or a "season" such as "harvest time." (Wikipedia)
“The least one shall become a thousand [a clan], and the small one a strong nation. I, the Lord, will hasten it in its [appointed] time.” (Isaiah 60:22 AMPC)
God’s timing is perfect timing. No matter how long it takes know that He is preparing you for what He is preparing for you.
“You will rise up and have compassion on Zion, for it is time to show favor to her—the appointed time has come.” (Psalm 102:13 HCSB)
Sometimes shifts, transitions, and new seasons are painful. We must go through the process, experience the labor pains in order to give birth. That baby, purpose, vision, is coming at its appointed, karios, time. We can either lean into the pain and breathe or fight it by struggling, staying stagnant. Whether we move or not when that water breaks we give birth.
"For the vision is yet for an appointed time and it hastens to the end [fulfillment]; it will not deceive or disappoint. Though it tarry, wait [earnestly] for it, because it will surely come; it will not be behindhand on its appointed day." (Habakkuk 2:3 AMPC)
Walk in your God appointed, karios, time.
“I said in my heart, God will judge the righteous and the wicked, for there is a time [appointed] for every matter and purpose and for every work.” (Ecclesiastes 3:17 AMPC)
