TRUSTING GOD’S TIMING
Through the years, we’ve always heard from one corner or the other, “Gods time is the best’’ and we definitely followed the train of telling others the same: “God’s time is the best”. Without any doubt, God’s time is indeed the best. Our God is so wonderful and He works in seasons and in phases. There is a time for everything and a season for every activity under the heavens. Ecclesiastes 3:1.
For there is a time and a way for everything, even when a person is in trouble. Ecclesiastes 8:6.
He creates seasons by which we will experience different phases of life. It’s programmed in a way that we can never, no matter how much we try, without God’s mercies, go through these phases conveniently. No matter how much, how far and how efficient we think we can strategize, without God’s mercies our efforts will be fruitless. It does not, therefore, depend on human desire or effort, but on God’s mercy. Romans 9:16.
Frustration sets in when we stop depending on him (God) and try to make things happen our way and on our terms. We should try to commit ourselves into the hands of the almighty God and rest in the knowledge that he knows what is best for us. Don’t go about making plans without consulting God. Seeking Him makes our plans align with God’s purpose for our lives.
He knows how to get you to where you’re supposed to be. You don’t have to live a worried or frustrated life because the God who gave us a future is already committed to it. If it’s His plan for you, the provisions are already ahead of you. If you will trust Him, He will turn things, problems and situations around for your good. Psalm 138:8- The lord will work out his plan for your life.
Proverbs 3:5-6 “Trust in the lord with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make straight your paths.
Always try, no matter how hard the situation may be, to have a positive mindset and always believe that the rough walk will transform into a beautiful dance of precision. If you ever feel like giving up, remember Jeremiah 32:17 “Ah, Sovereign LORD, you have made the heavens and the earth by your great power and outstretched arm. Nothing is too hard for you.“
Through the hard times and trying times I have experienced, below is what I always remember and It has helped. I pray it stays in your heart and helps you when you need it:
We may want/desire many things and we tend to forget that God also has major plans for us. For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. Jeremiah 29:11
Breathe and always have it at the back of your mind that God’s plans, even if not partially or fully understood at the moment, are for your better good and He takes His time to do everything right.
Delay is not denial. There are no delays with God for He makes everything beautiful in His time.
