In the Fullness of Time

In Ecclesiastes 3:1, the writer points out some interesting statements about God and His timing. “There’s an appointed time for everything and there’s a time for every event under heaven. A time to give birth and a time to die.” The writer goes on to say in verse 11 that “He has made everything beautiful in its time. He has also set eternity in the hearts of men, yet they cannot fathom what God has done from beginning to end."  In Galatians 4:4, God tells us that He planned and orchestrated the sequence of events and when the time was just right--in the fullness of time--He sent His only begotten Son into the world.
