Most of you all have heard of the saying “He may not come when you want Him, but God is right on time.” I think about cooking. In order for the food to be perfect, it has to be brought out at the right time. We can write a date on the calendar of when we want to achieve goals, just like doctors give expecting mothers due dates. However, anything can change and that will alter the date. However, we have an all knowing God who is the first and the last, the beginning and the end.
Acts 1:6-7 New Living Translation:6 So when the apostles were with Jesus, they kept asking him, “Lord, has the time come for you to free Israel and restore our kingdom?”7 He replied, “The Father alone has the authority to set those dates and times, and they are not for you to know.
We all in certain times in our lives (including me}, have asked God when. Sometimes God will give you a time. When God gives you a time, you have to move. However, there are times God wants to develop and mature us so we can be ready to handle the next level. Faith, patience, and trusting in God is tried.
Hebrews 6:12 Amplified Version: so that you will not be [spiritually] sluggish, but [will instead be] imitators of those who through faith [lean on God with absolute trust and confidence in Him and in His power] and by patient endurance [even when suffering] are [now] inheriting the promises.
We are the seed of Abraham and he is our spiritual father. Abraham trusted God during the wait.
Romans 4:19-20 New Living Translation: 19 And Abraham’s faith did not weaken, even though, at about 100 years of age, he figured his body was as good as dead—and so was Sarah’s womb.20 Abraham never wavered in believing God’s promise. In fact, his faith grew stronger, and in this he brought glory to God. 21 He was fully convinced that God is able to do whatever he promises.
All God wants us to do is trust Him because it is already done. While we are waiting, we must continue to stay diligent in the word so our faith will be strong. Give God thanks and watch what you are believing for manifest.
God is divine. He knows the right time!
Prayer: Lord, thank you for your mercy endures forever. God, you are the first and the last. You are the beginning and the end. God, thank you for being all knowing. God, I put my times in your hands. I am anxious for nothing. By prayer with thanksgiving I make my requests to you God. I rest in your finished work. I trust your time. I am diligent in your word as I wait, which gives me the strength to go through. I give you the praise. I have the victory through you, In Jesus name! Amen.
