As we grow older start to look back on the different seasons of our lives, we note that there have been good times and bad times. Good things like the birth of a child, getting payraise at work, getting married, and then plenty of bad times too; like the death of a loved one, a debilitating illness or getting laid off.
Both the good and the bad, come from God as today’s verse reminds us:
Ecc 7:14 Enjoy prosperity while you can, but when hard times strike, realize that both come from God. Remember that nothing is certain in this life.
The other thing that we should take note of here, is that there is nothing certain, God’s will shows us that the most crazy coincidences occur on an almost daily basis and not matter how many scientists and philosophers that have come and gone over the years, man still can’t predict the future, let alone the weather. The only One who knows the certainties of this world is the One who created it…definitely not us!
