God’s Timing

As I saw this on Facebook this morning, I got a jump in my spirit. For me to write a quickie on His (God’s) timing. 

In a microwaveable society, we are some eager creatures. Everything, instantaneous. Success, Love, Wealth, Money. We want it NOW. And not then. Now and not later. Because we think when we pray, God is the genie in our lives. And he snaps his finger, and your prayers are instantaneously answered. 

But those who really know God, knows He doesn’t work that way. One of the fruits of the spirit is Patience. So, that in itself lets us know that the ‘anxious’ spirit in us is not the way. Philippians 4:6 says “Never worry about anything. But in every situation let God know what you need in prayers and requests while giving thanks.” So why do we think God simply answers us with a ‘yes or no’ at our every beckon call? 

His timing is simply not ours. I realized one thing: 9 times out of 10, when I thought I ‘figured it out’ in my mind about a particular situation, I then realize that is not the way He will work out my situation. I think to myself ‘well this is how this situation will play out’ and it really doesn’t. Just as I heard before, want to make God laugh? Tell Him your plans. 

Sometimes it may come later than we expect, sometimes sooner. But just know His timing and plans is simply so much better than ours.

One thought on “God’s Timing

  1. mrwrite4u says:

    Very well said My (Beautiful) Lady 🙂 Timing is of the utmost importance, very critical, especially when it comes to decisions of the heart 🙂 Me being a former Military man, we never loose that fundamental training that is instilled in us, such as understanding and evaluating the importance of Time. Just knowing that there is a time and place for everything. In this wicked world that we live in, the common motto is “Do what thou wilt”, in other words, do whatever you want, whenever you want. The problem with that is, its like you said, it is definitely NOT how God’s Kingdom operates, nor is this the desire of the Most High for our lives, as his children. 1 Corinthians 14:33 state that “God is not the author of confusion (disorder),” which is exactly what this world has become. This wicked world is a harboring ground for rebellion, disorder, chaos and confusion as you can clearly see by the Supreme Courts ruling to legalize same sex marriage across this country. Primarily why 2nd Corinthians 4:4 state that “Satan, who is the god of this world, has blinded the minds of those who don’t believe”. This is because the physical and spiritual authority that was granted to Adam to rule this world was deceptively stolen from him (and all mankind) by Lucifer, therefore subjecting the rule of the physical and spiritual realm within this world, and all the creatures in it, to him. One of the primary reasons that this world remains in a current state of calamity, only to become worse. That is the ultimate goal of the adversary. To keep Mankind in a constant state of disorder, chaos, and disruption in order to continuously rob him of the truth and power that was once given to him, stolen from him, then returned to Mankind through the belief in the sacrifice Christ made, bearing the burden of Mankind’s sin within himself (although he was innocent and without sin) and shedding His blood on the cross. This act of obedience in humility in Christ redeemed Mankind from his initial fall and restored him to a place of truth and authority, but ONLY through the TRUE belief in Christ’s Blood and His Sacrifice. Only through Faith can we obtain our inheritance in God. Only through the belief in the one He sent. Only through Him can we become heirs in the Kingdom of God. Only through one name. That name is Jesus.

    “Now the just shall live by faith, but if any man draw back, my soul shall have no pleasure in him”.
    Hebrews 10:38

    It is ALWAYS a pleasure interacting with you in your writings my lady..

    Keep up the Good Work..

    Stay Beautiful and Blessed;
