The timing of God is a mystery. His timing is not our timing. Often, we want what we want when we want it, with no regard for anything else. Timing is a protector for us most of the time. God knows that if He gave us what we asked for when we asked for it, whether it be riches, power, love, or any other desire of our hearts, we would ruin it! Most of this is because we are not ready for what we are asking for OR all of the ingredients to fulfill this request are not quite in place yet. The right business partner may not totally be free from their current commitment yet, the right house may not be on sale yet, the right spouse may be cleaning up some loose ends in their lives so that when you meet, there will be no hindrances. The list goes on and on!
We can’t expect that everything will fall into line when we want it to. God sees all and knows all, and we have to accept that He knows best and is working everything out for our good. He is working behind the scenes on our behalf to pull all the pieces of the puzzle together so that when He does grant our desires, the necessary pieces will be in place to support us with the blessing, so that we are able to enjoy and sustain it!
I know, I know, we kick and scream and wonder what more can we possible do to get ready, or how can we speed things along. But this only leads to frustration, disappointment, distress, and eventually hopelessness. As challenging as it may be, we must learn to humbly submit ourselves to God’s will and accept His timing and plan for our lives, knowing that when He does fulfill His promise, it will be so much better than we ever expected it would be. Remember God’s delay is not God’s denial. Everything will come to pass according to God’s purpose in His divine timing.
Until next time…Be Healthy, Be Whole, Be You!
