Perhaps it’s the fact that this weekend we change our clocks to “spring ahead” for Daylight Savings Time or just the fact that things are really popping for us at VALLEY Christian Church right now; either way, I’ve been thinking a lot about timing recently. We all know that God’s timing and our timing are not at all the same, so things always work out best when we remain patient and trust God’s “proper time”. Take a look at these verses that talk about God’s “proper time”:
Whoever keeps a command will know no evil thing, and the wise heart will know the proper time and the just way. Ecclesiastes 8:5
For there is one God, and there is one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus, 6 who gave himself as a ransom for all, which is the testimony given at the proper time.1 Timothy 2:5-6
I charge you in the presence of God, who gives life to all things, and of Christ Jesus, who in his testimony before Pontius Pilate made the good confession, 14 to keep the commandment unstained and free from reproach until the appearing of our Lord Jesus Christ, 15 which he will display at the proper time . . . 1 Timothy 6:13-15
Humble yourselves, therefore, under the mighty hand of God so that at the proper time he may exalt you, 7 casting all your anxieties on him, because he cares for you. 1 Peter 5:6-7
When all of these verses are put together, it reminds me that patience on my part allows for God to do some really awesome things on his part, at the proper time! So here’s to waiting for God’s best and not settling for less!
