Use time and opportunities

Ecclesiastes 9:11 NASB
I again saw under the sun
that the race is not to the swift
and the battle is not to the warriors,
and neither is bread to the wise
nor wealth to the discerning
nor favor to men of ability;
for time and chance overtake them all.

Other translations

King James Version
I returned, and saw under the sun, that the race is not to the swift, nor the battle to the strong, neither yet bread to the wise, nor yet riches to men of understanding, nor yet favour to men of skill; but time and chance happeneth to them all.


The Most High is just in all His works.
He created time to run the events in this world.
He also gives everyone the opportunity to prove himself or herself.

No matter how smart or strong you are, you need time and opportunity to showcase what you have.

Being able to utilize time to prepare for every opportunity that comes your way shows how wise you are.

This helps you to create wealth and even win favor from God and man.

Time wasting and lack of preparation only lead to poverty and misery (Proverbs 6:6-11).

Dear friends, learn to make judicious use of your time to prepare for the least opportunity that God will bring your way, so you may have a fulfilling life.

Be time conscious!

Prayer suggestion

▪︎Ask God to help you to use your time wisely and take advantage of all the opportunities that come your way.
