Simply Time-a Lenten Lectio devotion

John 7:1-2, 10, 25-30

In the Book of Ecclesiastes, the Scripture reveals that “There is a time and purpose for everything under heaven. John reveals while Jesus was in Jerusalem for the feast of Tabernacles, he was not arrested “because his hour had not yet come.”

Being a human being means that we are bound by time. We are prisoners of the present. We cannot go back and change our past neither can we go forward to know our future. We can guess, dream, worry, or even ignore, but we cannot change or experience what is to be until our hour comes.

We cannot influence time, but God can and does. We may be haunted by a past full of problems. God can make that past as though it never was. We may be unsure of what will happen tomorrow. God can give us assurance all is well and all will be well.
