Making The Most Of Time (Ephesians 5:16)

Evil days are days of opportunity. The more evil our culture becomes, the more opportunities there will be to show and share our faith.

God controls human historypermitting the rise of nations, determining their geographical boundaries, and orchestrating their fallso that men and women will “seek the Lord” (Acts 17:26-27). History is “His story” of providing salvation for a lost world and pointing people to the Lord. Even the forces of evil are used in such a way that “all the kingdoms of the earth may know that You are the Lord. You alone” (Isaiah 37:20).

God may hold back His judgment for a time, allowing evil tyrants to have their day, upsetting people’s well-ordered lives, presenting them with dilemmas beyond their understanding. Evil brings pain, but it is the genius of God to bring good out of evil (Romans 8:28).

Evil times, therefore, are not to be feared. They are times of unparalleled opportunity. That’s why we must take the most of them. – David Roper

Lord, help us to redeem the time

You give us every day,

To take each opportunity

To follow and obey. – Sper

God can turn a difficulty into an opportunity.
