“In the eighth month of the second year in the reign of Darius, God’s Message came…” (Zechariah 1:1)
This could, if written today be, ” In the sixth month of the second year in the presidency of Donald J. Trump…” or “In the seventy-fifth year of the post industrial age…” God’s message came!
At times it seems our situation is desperate! Where is God? Why doesnt He do anything? Why is He so silent when our world seems to be falling apart?
It is not that God is silent. Perhaps we are not hearing because our mind is too noisy or just perhaps it isn’t the right time yet.
What was happening in the first year and first month in the reign of Darius? Why at this time did God speak? God is fully aware of humanity in all its courses and He cares very much. God’s timing is perfect!
