TIMING :     “WORTH CONSIDERING”   9/24/19   (Across my desk this morning.)

Today’s Scripture
“And let us not grow weary while doing good, for in due season we shall reap if we do not lose heart…”
(Galatians 6:9, NKJV)
His Timing

I’d love to tell you that if you stay in faith, if you believe, God will always answer your prayer within twenty-four hours, or at least within the first week. But we know that’s not reality. God promises He will be true to His Word, but He never puts a timeframe on it. In fact, He tells us that we need patience to see the promises come to pass. Sure, it would be a lot easier if God told us when we were going to get well, when we would meet the right person, or when our child would straighten up. But the truth is, that wouldn’t take any faith. It takes faith to say, “God, I don’t know when You are going to do it, but I trust You enough to believe that You will do it, that the answer is already in my future.” Today and every day let this be your prayer: “God, give me the grace to accept Your timing.” That means you’re asking for God’s strength, His supernatural empowerment to stand strong while you are waiting. Choose to keep believing, choose to praise Him, and choose to accept His timing, whether it’s twenty minutes or twenty years, knowing that what God promised He will bring to pass.

A Prayer for Today
“Father, thank You for Your hand of favor, blessing and mercy on my life. You are good and faithful. Because of that I trust You. I trust Your love, and I trust Your timing in Jesus’ name. Amen.”

My Comments,
This is so true.  We have such a difficultly in comparing our dimension in time,  with God’s dimension in eternity.   Peter said that God’s time was like a day to a 1000 years of our time.  Where God lives, there is no time,  1 Cor.13.  And the Holy Scriptures indicate that our dimension of time will eventually cease with the creation of a new heaven and a new earth.  Jesus even taught that we had a difficultly in discerning time,  Matt.16:3,  In Matt. 24:21.    Jesus taught that time had a beginning,
Mark13:19.    And in Rev. 10:19 Jesus taught that time would have an end.  So time is a temporary dimension in which our eternal souls are created with a house to live in to experience free will and the ability to learn to love in the one physical life time body (house) that each of us receive as a gift from God, our Creator.  The physical house we live in is very temporary.  And we are warned not to get tangled up in earthly time stuff: Gal.4:9-11 as it is vanity.  We are encouraged in Eph.5:15 to use our short time on earth wisely in learning to do the will of our LORD.  As receiving a new eternal house to live in from God is in many ways subject to what we do with the temporary house we live in today.

The word time is used 703 times in the Holy Bible,  it is a study well worth the time.
 

I will bless the Lord at all times: his praise shall continually be in my mouth.  2 My soul shall make her boast in the Lord: the humble shall hear thereof, and be glad.  O magnify the Lord with me, and let us exalt his name together. Psa. 34:1-3.  And hope maketh not ashamed; because the love of God is shed abroad in our hearts by the Holy Ghost which is given unto us.For when we were yet without strength, in due time Christ died for the ungodly.  Rom.5:5-6  10 Love worketh no ill to his neighbour: therefore love is the fulfilling of the law.  11 And that, knowing the time, that now it is high time to awake out of sleep: for now is our salvation nearer than when we believed.  12 The night is far spent, the day is at hand: let us therefore cast off the works of darkness, and let us put on the armour of light.

Yours, in HIS great love and wonderful grace and mercy,   Ken<><
