The BEST Timing!!
So, Ironically this week I've been speaking to two of my friends about the timing of several situations and waiting on Gods timing in all things.
This topic has been something I've been thinking about for quite a while and just thought I might as well post it up.
We being humans tend to have our own plans for things we want in our lives and when they don't go according to plan we begin to question why this is the case. One thing I've definitely learnt of recent is the effect of Gods timing, when you put a request before God there may be times where the request is not answered immediately all because God has a timing set, he knows the right time for what we request to be delivered to us.
For example, you may ask God for financial breakthrough or a new job & God sees that the stage in your life that you want this job is not the particular time in your life when you need it, maybe he feels you're not ready or there may be things he wants you to do that the job will not allow you to do; therefore, he will make it possible at a later time, maybe next week or 2 months down the line when he sees that you are ready or even when a better job that is perfect for you is available. Whenever the time he WILL answer and even if it's later than expected just remember that it is all for the best.
Let's say you're praying to God for a job in Mcdonalds and God knows righteously that place of work is not your destiny, he may make it possible for the interview to go successfully (to show that you can do it & also prepare you) but you won't get that job all because he has a better one in store for you, maybe at a high-end office or a bigger & better high street store where you will be favoured. This is not God saying no but "Not yet, better is yet to come" (Habakkuk 2:3).
Gods timing is relevant in many situations, relationships etc and no matter what he always knows what is best and WHEN it is best. It's just about having faith and believing in his command. Through all things, believe that he is the God of blessings and favour, the God that answers our heart desires.
Do you think he will ever want to disappoint us or not give us what we want? No, but when he has a better idea/ direction on that path to righteousness at the best time in our lives why is he going to satisfy us with less than the best?
Here are a few quotes I felt reached out to me in relation to this topic:
Jeremiah 29: 11-14
1 Peter 1: 6-9
Phillippians 4: 6-8
Finally, remembering these things also goes with following the way of God and giving back to him so he can continue to bless us knowing we will return unto him (John 15:7).
Have a great weekend guys & God bless :)
