Like the taste of a fully ripe peach, God’s timing is marvelous. Don’t be anxious–He has a beautiful plan. “He has made everything beautiful in its time. Also, he has put eternity into man’s heart, yet so that he cannot find out what God has done from the beginning to the end.” (Ecc. 3:11) Just like picking a flower before it has bloomed–if we push or rush what is not yet to be, then we fail to obtain the FULL goodness of the blessings God has for us. God WANTS to be good to us, but His goodness comes when we SEEK and WAIT. “The Lord is good to those who wait for him, to the soul who seeks him.” (Lam. 3:25) We cannot comprehend the mind or plans of God, but we can be filled with His Spirit which will enable us to LIVE in the strength of His timing. “But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.” (Isaiah 40:31) There are so many beautiful things we enjoy when the timing is perfect–a steak cooked to medium rare, a perfect pass for an alley oop slam dunk, a photograph catching the wonder of a child, etc. Why would we think that perfect timing doesn’t apply to the more important part of our lives as well—like career, marriage and family? God does so many things perfectly every day—like the breath you just took without even a thought and the sun that rose this morning right on schedule. God performs miracles every second Creation breathes; and thus, we may entrust our heart’s desires to His magnificent timing. We need only seek Him and wait for His direction. Don’t rush or be anxious–just relax, listen and trust. God’s got you more than you know and better than you ever did! Seek Him and find peace.
