I want you to be in the right place at the right time. Not the right place but at the wrong time, and certainly not being in the wrong place at the wrong time! In the scheme of things, we have to understand that timing is of paramount importance to God as He works in our lives.
Ecc 3:11 says that “God has made everything beautiful …in HIS time.” It may not look beautiful now, but give God time to work! Just because we walk by faith and believe God, that doesn’t necessarily mean that it’s going to be beautiful tomorrow! However, in time, God is going to take our situation – who we are, our issues, our frustrations, our difficulties- and He is going to make our situation beautiful…but in its time. That’s where many mess up, because we want to know why everything planned for our future isn’t happening TODAY!
A Scripture that is so active in my life, that I speak in my prayer time every single day of the year, is Romans 8:26-28. Holy Spirit, I thank you that you help me in my weaknesses because I don’t know what to pray for as I ought. But you,Holy Spirit, you make intercession for me according to the Will of God so now I KNOW that all things are working together for my good. Almost every Christian knows Romans 8:28, but but the operation of this Scripture is worthless without verses 26-27! It’s only because I am praying in the Holy Spirit that Romans 8: 28even works for us! Romans 8:28 says that all things work together for my good. I love God, and I am called according to His purpose and because I pray in the Holy Spirit all things work together for my good! So that means, that the ugliness of today is going to become the beauty of tomorrow because God is at work and He makes ALL things beautiful! Everything! God makes all things beautiful in its time, so we MUST understand the timing of God!
There are WAY too many impatient Christians. I think we have too many Christians who are impatient with God and too patient with the devil! We need to put our foot down and say NO to the enemy and not give him one inch! The Bible says that Jesus gave NO place to the devil, and we need to operate the same way! . We need to realize that we should give no place to the devil whatsoever, give him no foot hold. But to God on the other hand, we need to be we have to realize because timing is so important to the Plan Of God. patience is what is going to keep us operating in that Plan without losing our minds while we’re waiting!
1 Sam 1:20 says that in the “process of time”, Hannah had her baby boy Samuel. Here the Bible shows us that there is a PROCESS to time. Things are happening in the Plan Of God, but we get so busy and impatient that we cannot seeall the things that are happening “in the process”! We want everything NOW! We are in such an instant society…instant oatmeal, instant coffee, we have instant everything! So now we are trying to transfer our instant culture into instant Christianity, and we want everything now! However, that is just not how God does it. God does everything in His appointed time. This is why 1 Peter 5:6 says that we are to humble ourselves under the mighty hand of God, and that God will then exalt us…in DUE TIME!
How long is “due time”? How long does “due time” take? DUE TIME takes as long as it takes!Until it’s done! There are things in our life that just won’t happen until it’s DUE time for the plan to come to pass!
