“And of the children of Issachar, which were men that had understanding of the times, to know what Israel ought to do; the heads of them were two hundred; and all their brethren were at their commandment” (1 Chronicles 12:32 [KJV]).
God, in His wisdom, placed time as a factor that can be used to understand seasons and happenings. It was said of the men of Issachar that they understood the times and seasons and because of that, their relatives (other tribes of Israel) were in their command.
What do you know about this time we are living in? How well have you aligned your life in order not to miss out of Gods plan even at this time? One day, Jesus looked at Jerusalem, and the Bible says that he wept because they didn’t understand the times and because of that he spoke of their destruction. It is written, “My people perish for lack of knowledge..”.
Let me ask these questions: What is Gods current position about your life, country and the church in this day and time? How can God commit his end time plan and agenda into the hands of ignorant people? We need to go back to the secret place and make sure we get all the bearings and coordinates right so that we will not be found prodigal in our thoughts and actions.
PRAYER POINT: Father, help us to be conscious of the times we are in; times when men will be easily carried away by the deceit of the enemy. Give us the grace to be custodians of your will and council on earth in Jesus’ Name. Amen!
