God's Timing

 

I am impatient. 

I wait in grocery lines and pick up my phone and scroll through social media. 




I stop at a red light and pick up my phone and see who called.

I sit on the phone waiting in que for my turn to be helped with a problem.  Instead of waiting, I go to my computer and begin to do other work while I wait. 

I can’t just sit still.

I am impatient.

I believe I am multitasking. 


But if I am being honest. I am impatient.



I want the grocery line to move faster. I want the light to turn green faster.  I want the person on the other side of the phone to pick up faster.

Can you relate?

When I pray, I tend to do the same thing. 

I pray for something.  I want God to move faster too.



I know better. But I will still try.

I rationalize that what I am asking for is urgent.  He knows.  So, He will move fast, right?

I rationalize.

You know what rationalize really means?

Rational - lies.  Moving those thoughts around in my head until they make sense to me.

TIMING.

 Now God move.  In His Timing.


 It is not in my timing.  It is always in HIS.



Sometimes when I pray, He answers right away because it is in His timing.

However - Sometimes He doesn’t.

For example, I recently asked the Lord for some volunteers for a specific position in our marriage ministry.  I woke up the next day and it was filled. 

JUST LIKE THAT!

Wow God, THANK YOU!

The next day He showed up.

However, we have been praying for workers in our business for quite a while now.

God’s answer has been quiet.

He said wait.  Not yet.

I need to be patient in the waiting.

God is never late.

God is the God of Just in Time.

He will not be late in bringing the right employees to our business. 

He has a reason why we are waiting.  The timing is not right.  His timing is not right.

I need to be patient.

I need to not force it.

I need to Trust His timing.

The sooner we learn this - the easier life will be.

When the time is right, it will be perfect.


Trust His timing.

Trust Him.

Pray for me as I pray for you!

 


There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under the heavens:

Ecclesiastes 3:1

 

He has made everything beautiful in its time. He has also set eternity in the human heart; yet no one can fathom what God has done from beginning to end.

Ecclesiastes 3:11

Stones of Remembrance...

We got good news yesterday.  Actually, three things happened that made me stop and thank God each time.  One was a reprieve from the storms ...
