Topic: UNDERSTANDING THE UNPLEASANT TIMES
Text: Ecclesiastes 3:1-11
2 A time to be born, and a time to die; a time to plant, and a time to pluck up that which is planted;
4 A time to weep, and a time to laugh; a time to mourn, and a time to dance;
No one in life prays for evil, everyone desires the good times of life but the truly there are unpleasant or evil times in life.
The times of life stated in our text above are not only the good times but the bad times also e.g A time to die, a time to break down, a time to weep, a time to mourn, a time to lose, a time of war e.t.c. The scripture speaks clearly of evil days (times); for example, Ecclesiastes 12:1 says “remember now thy Creator in the days of thy youth, while the evil days come not……”, also Ephesians 5:16 says “redeeming the time because the days are evil”. So understand that unpleasant or evil times exist in life.
Times of evil can be as a result of a variety of factors which could be physical or spiritual. However, spiritually, a principal agent of evil times in this life is the devil. In Job 1&2 devil bargained with God to test Job, and the only parameter the devil used was to bring evil upon Job, such that in one day Job lost all that he had, so devil turned Job’s joy to sorrow and his peace to trouble. Most times when the devil has no justification to bring evil upon a man (a righteous man), he turns that man against his Maker (God) so as to have access to cause evil upon that man, In 1 Chronicles 21: devil stood against King David over Israel and provoked David to sin by counting the population of Israel which led to the death of about 70,000 Israelites in one day (a great evil) before God showed His mercy.
Dearly beloved, there is no good thing from the devil neither is there anything good about him. His mission is simply evil which are, to steal, to kill and to destroy (John10:10). So if you pally with the devil for the pleasures or treasures of this life, you are just like a ram nurtured by its master for the time of slaughter (evil day). Therefore beloved don’t give space to the devil, to evil days, or to evil times in your life (Ephesians 4:27). God bless you.
* Father, let every evil planned against me by the devil or his agent be cancelled right now in Jesus Name
* Father, let every unpleasant or evil time in my life expire now, in Jesus Name
