Right Happenings Come From Jesus

“I again saw under the sun that the race is not to the swift and the battle is not to the strong, and neither is bread to the wise nor riches to those of intelligence and understanding nor favor to men of ability; but time and chance overtake them all.” ECCLESIASTES‬ ‭9:11‬ ‭AMP‬‬

Never forget that “the race is not to the swift, nor the battle to the strong…but time and chance happen to them all.” God wants you to have the right timing—His timing, and He wants to lead you to the right places. Psalm 37:23 says, “The steps of a good man are ordered by the Lord…” You are that “good man” because you are the righteousness of God in Christ (2 Corinthians 5:21).

Now, look at the word “happen” in Ecclesiastes 9:11. In the original Hebrew text, it is the word qarah, which means “to encounter, to meet (without pre-arrangement), to chance to be present.” In a nutshell, it means “right happening.” So you can depend on the Lord to cause you to be at the right place at the right time, to have right happenings happen in your life! I’m sure that you would agree that being at the right place at the right time is a tremendous blessing. You certainly don’t want to be at the wrong place at the wrong time!

Beloved, don’t depend on how smart you are and how well you plan your day. Only Jesus knows how to place you at the right place at the right time. So depend on Him for right happenings. Commit your plans to Him and let Him lead you supernaturally into good success in all that you do!
