God’s timing is perfect.
You hear this a lot and may wonder if this is true when you have to actually wait for God to act in your situations but I realize time and time again the truth of this statement. Every Wednesday night we have a service called "Fireside" and I was reflecting on this past emotional rollercoaster of a year. There were many moments where I could have taken things into my own hands to make my desires come to reality but it would have cost me to forfeit my trust in the Lord. The process was ugly and dark with many moments where I wanted to give up but the Lord was doing something that I could not have foreseen. I cannot fully tell the details of my experience as I feel it’s not the time yet to share fully but just know for now that I know what it means to wait in the agony of the “process.”
To trust in the Lord is hard yet I realize that when we trust in the Lord to the end that our praises will be greater when He does pull through because God not only meets the need but surprises us in how much he goes beyond the request!
Yesterday I talked about how Esther was patient in waiting before she acted and how even the planned developed in God’s presence required patience. It is funny how we learn the power of patience when we need to be patient in moments where time is against us. Yet Esther’s plan was something that was made in the midst of God’s presence while she fasted and as the story is coming to a close, we see how God’s perfect timing not only brought about hilarious irony in today’s story but how God is ALWAYS faithful to deliver!
Today as you give thanks and eat a lot of food that makes you believe that diet starts tomorrow, may you never go on a diet with the Lord and therefore feast in His presence daily so that you can learn to trust His timing!
