~*~Trusting Gods Timetable~*~

Sunday, April 26, 2009

He has made everything beautiful in its time. Also He has put eternity in their hearts.
Ecclesiastes 3:11 NKJV

We should learn to trust God's timing, but we're sorely tempted to do otherwise. Why? Because we humans are usually anxious for things to happen sooner rather than later. But God knows better.

God has created a world that unfolds according to his own timetable, not ours-thank goodness! We mortals would make a terrible mess of things. God does not. His plan does not always happen in the way we would like or at the time of our choosing. But our task is to wait patiently and never lose hope.

In the words of Elisabeth Elliot, "We must learn to move according to the timetable of the Timeless One, and to be at peace." That's advice worth following today, tomorrow, and every day.

Have a wonderful Evening.

    I have discovered that God's timing is just as important as God's will. In fact, the Bible talks a lot about timing. Ecclesiastes 3:1 says, "To everything there is a season, a time for every purpose under heaven" (NKJV).

    The Bible talks about a man of God who had really bad timing. If this man were in a race, he would have been the one to come out of nowhere, take the lead, and then suddenly self-destruct. The man I'm speaking of is Moses.

    Great blog.

    I agree. There have been times when I would think why are things not happening like I think they should only to later find out God had His PERFECT timing.
    He sees the big picture, we just see what is right before us. He loves us so much He always has our best interest at heart. Jerm 29:11
