Today, I went to visit someone and somehow there was a big traffic caused by nothing as I later found.
Taking a bike seemed like the only miracle that I could have. While on the bike, Eccl 9:11 came to mind.
Eccl 9:11 “I returned and saw under the sun that- the race is not to the swift, nor the battle to the strong, nor bread to the wise, nor riches to the men of understanding, nor favor to men of skill; but time and chance happen to them all.”
In this life we cannot under estimate time, chance and season. Everything that will happen in life is pre-destined, there are some things we can change as children of God and there are things we cannot change.
You need to grow, attain a level where you can understand that it is not by being prepared that things happen. To know that some events are just fly you to learn and grow. You need to get to a level where you can easily understand that you’ve not gotten it yet because it’s not your time.
You need to understand process; you need to go through process. No matter how prepared you are things can still flop, no matter how strong you are, there are some battles you will lose. Your wisdom can only take you far (you will learn from error’s, yours included). That no matter how rich you are, you can’t buy everything in life, and no matter how learned you are you won’t always have it together.
Understand every season you go through in life and give yourself time to grow.
Its important to understand that some seasons are for growing, never remain mediocre, learn in advance for your time.
And even after that, never forget time and season. There are stages to everything in life.
