Our timing is not God’s timing

Have you ever been disappointed?  I know I have.  There have been things that I have wanted & wished for in life, that never came about for me.  Yet, when I look back at those times in my life, I realize my life may have very well turned out differently, if God’s timing had not had it’s place.

READ:Psalm 37:3-11

All things work together for good to those . . . who are the called according to His purpose. —Romans 8:28

Perfect timing is rare—at least where humans are concerned. But God has specific purposes and plans for us, and His timing is always perfect.

We see that timing in the life of these Bible characters: Abraham’s servant prayed for a wife for Isaac. God answered his prayer by bringing the young woman to him (Gen. 24). Joseph was sold as a slave, falsely accused, and thrown into prison. But eventually God used him to preserve many people’s lives during a famine (45:5-8; 50:20). And we marvel at Esther’s courage as Mordecai reminded her, “Who knows whether you have come to the kingdom for such a time as this?” (Est. 4:14).

Are you disappointed in the pace of God’s plans? “Trust in the Lord” (Ps. 37:3). God will open doors when the timing is perfect.

Have faith in God, the sun will shine Though dark the clouds may be today; His heart has planned your path and mine, Have faith in God, have faith alway. —Agnew

God’s timing is perfect—every time!

Maybe God tests our faith by having disappointments come our way.  Maybe He has us wait so that we can obtain something better.  Whatever the reason, God knows best.   It can be hard to trust an unknown future- but we have an all knowing God that’s going to take care of us.   We must trust Him no matter what.

Miss Neenee has come to me saying,”Mama, can I get on the computer, now?  And you can ‘ya know, do laundry.” Then points at the pile of Mount St. Laundry (as my friend refers to it) in my bedroom floor.  So, friends, you know why I have to be going………
