Godís Timing

READ: Exodus 13:17-22
For every matter there is a time and judgment. óEcclesiastes 8:6

Pastor Audley Blackís church near the south coast of Jamaica has been in a building program since at least 2005. That was the first time I visited his church and saw that they were expanding. The last time I was thereóin the spring of 2011ósome of the walls were up. By that summer, they had started on the roof. When I suggested to Pastor Black that perhaps the church would be done by 2013 when I thought I might return, he said it was a possibility.

There was no hint of disappointment that this project could take 8 years or longer! No, Pastor Black and his people are excited about what God is doing, and theyíre patient with His timing.

We are often not that patient. We want our church to grow quickly, our young people to mature right away, and our problems to be fixed today.

Maybe we need to be reminded that some things take timeóGodís time. For instance, when the Israelites first left Egypt, God sent them on the long route to the Promised Land (Ex. 13:17-18). During that time He prepared them, taught them, and challenged them.

In our microwave world, we want everything done instantaneously. But sometimes thatís not Godís plan. Letís seek Godís help and learn to accept His timing. óDave Branon

He does not lead me year by year,
Nor even day by day;
But step by step my path unfolds;
My Lord directs my way. óRyberg

Godís timetable may move slowly, but it does move surely.

Re: Godís Timing

God's timetable I can reassure you as you get older, moves faster and faster. I sure wish it would slow down a bit...

Anyways, always love reading these.
