This is your time!

Psalm 102:13, “Thou shalt arise, and have mercy upon Zion: For the time to favour her, yea, the set time is come.”

Time is a precise instant that something happens. It is the duration of an event. God is transcendent over time. He established the cycles of times and seasons and He has the power to dissolve them, if He pleases. God determines in advance the time set for everyone and He brings it to pass.

A set time is a season of light, a time in which God transforms us from obscurity to limelight. It is a time when the secret of wealth is revealed and you’re suddenly endowed with the kind of wisdom that unexpectedly catapults you from the level of a pauper to the level of financial freedom.

In the above verse, He said the set time to favour Zion has come. In other words, your set time is when God chooses to favour you. Your set time is when He chooses to hear your cry and save you from long time situations.

Naturally, it can be very hard to trust on God’s timing, especially when a problem persists for too long and it seems like we are not even on God’s clock. God’s timing is always perfect, even when our trust in it is not. His time is so far from our concept that it can be difficult not to panic at the thought of trusting it.

Your set time is also when God chooses to deliver you from enemies or unfavourable conditions. Psalm 31:15 says that “My times are in thy hand: deliver me from the hand of mine enemies, and from them that persecutes me.”

A set time is when God chooses to give you a new name. Perhaps you’ve been addressed or described by your problem for donkey years, God is saying to you; hold on and relax! I will give you a new and appropriate name at the appropriate time. Zephaniah 3:20 says, “At that time will I bring you again, even in the time that I gather you: For I will make you a name and a praise among all people of the earth, when I turn back at your captivity before your eyes, saith the Lord.” I declare that your set time is now in Jesus name. You can never have a better-set time than God’s time. No matter how late or odd the time may be, it is still your set time. Let’s look at practical examples in the Bible:

In the book of Esther chapter 6, at Modecai’s set time, king Ahasuerus could not sleep till the book of the chronicles was brought to him. The good deed of Modecai was brought to remembrance and within the twinkling of an eye; Modecai was transformed from a common gatekeeper to a highly respected personality in the palace.

Another good example is Esther, a common orphan with no hope of a better future. At her set time, she was transformed from a commoner to a queen, the wife of king Ahasuerus, who reigned over 127 provinces stretching from India to Ethiopia. Wasn’t that awesome? Esther 2:17, And the king loved Esther above all the women, and she obtained grace and favour in his sight more than all the virgins; so that he set the right royal crown upon her head, and made her queen instead of Vashti.

In the book of Samuel, it was recorded that David was afraid of the ark of God because of the mysterious way it killed Uzzah, who was only trying to prevent it from falling. David refused to carry it to his house because he was afraid of also making a mistake that will make him the next victim. Then he ordered that the ark should be carried to the house of Obededom the Gittite. I believe Obededom was a commoner, whose life meant nothing to them. Unknown to David and his men, it was Obededom’s set time to be blessed.

Calling on God for help means telling Him that it is time for Him to work. Don’t hesitate. Call on Him and as you do so today, you will receive your immediate response in Jesus name.
