There was a recent story on msn.com that told the story of a 1953 class ring that was found in a dried-up lake 60 years later and was in the process of being returned to its owner. A ring being found after 60 years. Amazing!.
After reading the story I started thinking about God’s timing. The human race seems to constantly be in an ever-increasing hurry. We sometimes expect God to operate in our time constraints and on our schedules. We forget that God is the creator of the universe and we must conform to His view of time.
Psalm 27:14 (KJV). Wait on the Lord: be of good courage, and he shall strengthen thine heart: wait, I say, on the Lord.
Ecclesiastes 3:1 (KJV). To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven:
2 Peter 3:8 (KJV). But, beloved, be not ignorant of this one thing, that one day is with the Lord as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day.
Psalm 46:10 (KJV). Be still, and know that I am God: I will be exalted among the heathen, I will be exalted in the earth.
Psalm 90:4 (KJV). For a thousand years in thy sight are but as yesterday when it is past, and as a watch in the night.
We often expect God to respond to our request and prayers immediately and often become agitated or anxious when He doesn’t respond as quick as we think He should. We must remind ourselves that God is perfect, His plan is perfect, and His timing is perfect.
