Galatians 6:9, Psalm 39:7, Hebrews 10:36
Waiting is often hard, but God’s timing is perfect.
When I see a problem, I want to fix it right now. When I’m in a storm, I want it to be stopped right this second. Waiting is not my strong suit. I hate it. I’m like a kid waiting on Christmas, I want the problems solved right away.
Though when I want something to be dealt with now, and I start meddling, well it never turns out well. When I try to push my own timeline, it always causes a bigger problem than it’s worth.
God’s timing is perfect, he had this overarching plan and he knows what is best for me and when I need a valley or need a hill. He knows when I need to do some strength training and when I need to take a rest. And in all these metaphors, I mean God knows me and what I need in any time of my life. I have to put my trust into Him.
When I’m in a storm I have to believe it is for a purpose. I have to trust that God is working in my life, and I have to take his lead, follow his direction.
Do you trust in God’s timing? How do wait patiently?
