You will never find the time to do what is right; you must do what is right. You will never find the time to do what is right; you must work out the time. This means, there is no specified time to do good, you are the one to work out or create the time. Everyone is exposed to things that are not consistent with one’s desire to do good/ God’s Word.
Paul put this clearly when he said, “My desire is to do good, but I find myself doing what is against my desire” (Romans 7:15-20). A person like Paul (a person of his calibre) would seem to know God more than everyone else. I mean, out of anybody in his time and now, he is expected to know God more than anyone else. But the cares (difficulty, pain, suffering, trouble) and lure (our interest in worldly, fleshly desires) of the world leave no time to do good.
Anytime we open our eyes, the things that stare us in the face are evil. When you look out of the window into the streets, what you see is nothing but evil. I mean, the lure and cares of the world. You wake up in the morning determined to get it right but before you know it, you have missed the mark, because of the cares and lure, the attraction of the world.
This is what Paul meant when he cried, I mean, lamented that he did what he did not want to do (Romans 7:15). In other words, he lamented his inability to find the time to do what is right. This was the situation Paul, like any of us, found himself in. He found himself struggling to create or make time to do what is right, like it happens to us today. This is what I mean by, you will never find the time to do what is right – you must create it.
Today, we wake up in the morning determined to get it right; before we know it, we have sinned. Every time you determine to do what is right, something else, something contrary, crosses your mind. This is because anything close to what is right receives attack. This is what the Bible means by the expression, “The road to the Kingdom of God is not a bed of roses” – I mean, you are bound to encounter snakes, scorpions, thorns and the like (Acts 14:22).
