Timing is everything. The Bible teaches us that God's timing is perfect. What a great place to be mentally to understand that fact. We live in a world that is never at peace with itself- and never satisfied. Do you rest in the timiing of God? Galatians 4:4 states: "But when the set time had fully come, God sent his Son, born of a woman". This of course is about the birth of Jesus. God at the perfect moment sent His son Jesus to earth to accomplish His purposes.
God works in the same way for you. He has a plan. He has His timing. Thr primary struggle for us is that we measure events and their timing in a very limited way. From the time we are a child to a senior citizen, we can only measure the timing of God against those few years. God has an eternal view of things. Therefore, his pace is almost always slower than ours.
My prayer for myself and for you is that we will become syncronized in the timing of God. That we would not live our lives running ahead of God, or falling behind. But that we would wait on the LORD- and trust Him in the waiting.
Make it your spiritual goal to calm down and rest im the timing of God. Yes serve Him in all you do- but in those things within which we are waiting- be at ease. God timing is perfect- and He is good!
Our world seems to be spinning out of control. this is just a small sampling of the troubling events of our generation. Need we speak of North Korea, China, the US economy, the tragedy in Japan and even the cost of milk ?.....In my news reading I even came across this headline: Man dressed in a cow costume steals 26 gallons of milk from a grocery store! As funny as that last story sounds it is a creative way to sin! This world is unraveling under a blanket of sin! The Word of God tells us that in the last days things will wax worse and worse. The world will be thrown into chaos- and it's all because of man's overall failure to submit to God and His ways, Satan to, has his plan, desiring to be followed and worshipped- He is behind the governments of the world who are sending us at break-neck speed to the edge of collapse! If you are like me and my family, we all have concerns about these things, making ends meet, and holding back the tide of ungodliness. It seems that events are leading us to a life that we have never experienced before. The Holy Spirit led Peter to write the following words for our encouragement and instruction in light of these events. "The end of all things is near. Therefore be clear minded and self-controlled so you can pray. Above all love each other deeply, because love covers a multitude of sins. Offer hospitality to one another without grumbling. Each one should use whatever gift he has received to serve others, faithfully administering God's grace in its various forms". I Peter 4:7-10God is in control beloved of God- no matter the circumstances, Be self controlled and clear minded! Love God. Love each other forgive and extend the grace of God to all. The time is short. Will you do it?Keep the Faith!There's an o
