“God’s Timing is Perfect”
Updated: Sep 22
This is a lesson I have had to learn a few times in my life. Being a planner, I have often had my own game plan and a timetable for things to happen instead of waiting on God’s timing. 1st Peter says it well as I needed to humble myself before the mighty hand of God.
1 Peter 5:6
“6 Therefore humble yourselves under the mighty hand of God, that He may exalt you in due time, 7 casting all your care upon Him, for He cares for you.”
We must learn to trust God’s timing. That is easier said than done. We are fallible human beings that easily get impatient for things to happen, but God knows better.
Psalm 27:14 (NKJV)
14 Wait on the Lord; Be of good courage, And He shall strengthen your heart; Wait, I say, on the Lord!
God has created a world that falls under His own timetable, not ours. That is good, because we would have a good chance of messing things up. Thank goodness that God is Sovereign and in control of everything. He is all-knowing and God’s timing is perfect. We won’t always understand God’s plan, but He will reveal it to us in His own time. We must put our trust in God’s plan and wait on Him.
Ecclesiastes 3:11 (NKJV)
11 He has made everything beautiful in its time. Also, He has put eternity in their hearts, except that no one can find out the work that God does from beginning to end.
