We’ve heard it said, “I was in the right place at the right time!” But, how many of you have said that about yourself? Hopefully, you’ve all experienced that at some time in your life.
How would you like to always be in the right place at the right time? Let’s look at some scriptures:
Proverbs 2:4-12 (KJV 4 If thou seekest her [wisdom] as silver, and searchest for her as for hid treasures;
5 Then shalt thou understand the fear of the LORD, and find the knowledge of God.
6 For the LORD giveth wisdom: out of his mouth cometh knowledge and understanding.
7 He layeth up sound wisdom for the righteous: he is a buckler to them that walk uprightly.
8 He keepeth the paths of judgment, and preserveth the way of his saints.
9 Then shalt thou understand righteousness, and judgment, and equity; yea, every good path.
10 When wisdom entereth into thine heart, and knowledge is pleasant unto thy soul;
11 Discretion shall preserve thee, understanding shall keep thee:
12 To deliver thee from the way of the evil man, from the man that speaketh froward things;
Proverbs 4:7 (KJV) 7 Wisdom is the principal thing; therefore get wisdom: and with all thy getting get understanding.
Here we see that when you seek the wisdom of the Lord, knowledge and understanding are also available to you. But you must seek them. Simply said, God’s Word will direct your path if you let it. That’s a sure way to be in the right place at the right time.
Isaiah 46:9a-10 (KJV) 9 … for I am God, and there is none else; I am God, and there is none like me,
10 Declaring the end from the beginning, and from ancient times the things that are not yet done, saying, My counsel shall stand, and I will do all my pleasure:
As you can see, God knows the end from the beginning. He knows the best path to take but we have to draw it out with our faith. Remember, all the promises of God are in the spirit realm and we have to use our faith to draw them out.
Nothing from God happens by accident. And even though His promises are always YES, they don’t fall onus like ripe cherries off a tree. We have to use our faith to access His promises. And that’s how we make our way straight.
Isaiah 45:2-3 (KJV) 2 I will go before thee, and make the crooked places straight: I will break in pieces the gates of brass, and cut in sunder the bars of iron:
3 And I will give thee the treasures of darkness, and hidden riches of secret places, that thou mayest know that I, the LORD, which call thee by thy name, am the God of Israel.
God does go before us and makes the crooked places straight but we have to go His way. Otherwise, we’ll be walking a crooked path that leads to destruction
If you know that you can get God’s wisdom about everything you need to know simply by asking in faith, then you can rest confidently that you’ll be in the right place at the right time.
2 Corinthians 1:20 (KJV) 20 For all the promises of God in him are yea, and in him Amen, unto the glory of God by us.
James 1:5 (KJV) 5 If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all men liberally, and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him.
Proverbs 3:16-17 (KJV) 16 Length of days is in her right hand; and in her left hand riches and honour.
17 Her ways are ways of pleasantness, and all her paths are peace.
