God’s Timing

We live in such a fast-paced world that we are conditioned to expect things to happen as fast as possible. However, that is not the way of the Kingdom!

Is anything too hard for the Lord? At the appointed time I will return to you, according to the time of life, and Sarah shall have a son.” Genesis 18:14

Time and timing is in the Lord’s hands, and we cannot speed up His process because we are expecting things to happen faster. There is a generation that has been raised with so much technology that they have not learned to wait for much in life. While most of my generation didn’t grow up with technology, we still have been accustomed to getting immediate results whether that is online shopping, ordering food, texting, or using various phone apps. They all give us the opportunity to get used to the idea that things can happen fast and on our timetable.

The above scripture shows us that God has an appointed time for things. It was God’s idea for Abraham and Sarah to have a son. Abraham and Sarah welcomed the promise, and as a matter of fact they desperately longed for it. However, just because they had a great desire and it seemed like time was running out, that didn’t compel the Lord to move faster.

The Lord sits outside of time, and He has a plan and a process for all things concerning us. Most of the time, He does not tell us how long something will take. This becomes part of the faith walk  that we keep trusting Him and keep walking with Him. We know that if God has spoken it, He will bring it to pass. The appointed time is the right time for it to happen; whether we understand it or not is irrelevant.

Are you struggling with things that have not come to pass? Are you wrestling with the Lord on it? Or are you trying to make things happen? Ask the Lord to show you if you are trying to control the timing of things. If you do, are you willing to repent and surrender the timing to the Lord!?
