- GOD HAS A TIMETABLE FOR EVERYTHING THAT HAPPENS
Ecclesiastes 3:1(NAB) “There is an appointed time for everything. And there is a time for every event under heaven.” Galatians 4:4-5“When THE RIGHT TIME came, God sent his Son to earth, born of a woman and living under the law, so that his Son could pay for our freedom from the law and adopt us as his children into God’s family!”
- GOD DOES NOT TELL US DETAIL IN ADVANCE
Ecclesiastes 3:11 (NCV) “God has given them a desire to know the future. He does everything just right and on time, but people can never completely understand what he is doing.” Acts 1:7-8 (MSG) “You don’t get to know the time. Timing is the Father’s business.
- GOD IS NEVER IN A HURRY AND HE’S NEVER LATE
Habakkuk 2:3 God: “The vision WILL happen at the time I have appointed. It moves steadily toward it’s goal and it will not be proven false. If it seems slow or delayed, just wait for it! It will certainly happen. It will not be late!”
- GOD’S TIMING IN NOT ALWAYS CONVENIENT FOR ME
Luke 2:1-6 “At that time, Caesar Augustus ordered all people under Roman rule to return to their hometown to register in a census…. So, Joseph took Mary with him to Bethlehem, and by this time she was very pregnant…. In Bethlehem, the time came for her to have her baby.”
- AT THE RIGHT TIME GOD CAN DO ANYTHING IN AN INSTANT
Isaiah 60:22 (TEV) God: “I am the Lord, so when the right time comes, I will make it all happen quickly!”Isaiah 49:8 (NCV) God: “At the RIGHT TIME I will answer your prayers!”
WHAT DOES GOD WANT ME TO DO WHILE I WAIT?
Fear Not! Fret Not! Forget Not! Faint Not!
