Like the taste of a fully ripe peach, God’s timing is marvelous. We don’t have to live anxiously because–He has a plan. His Word says: “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.” (Ecclesiastes 3:11) Just like picking a flower before it has bloomed–if we push or rush what is not yet supposed to be, we will fail to obtain the FULL goodness of God’s blessings. His Word says that His goodness comes when we SEEK and WAIT: “The Lord is good to those who wait for him, to the soul who seeks him.” (Lamentations 3:25)
We cannot fully comprehend the mind of God, but we can be filled with His Spirit which enables us to LIVE contently in the perfection of His timing. His Word says: “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) Like a photograph that perfectly captures a child’s wonder, there are so many beautiful things we enjoy when the timing is perfect. Why would we believe that perfect timing doesn’t also apply to the more important parts of our lives as well—like career, marriage, finances and family?
God does so many things perfectly every day—like the breath you just took without even a single thought and the sun that is sailing through the sky right on schedule. God performs miracles every second Creation exists; thus, we may also entrust our heart’s desires to His perfect timing. We need only seek His will for today and wait for His direction. There’s no need to rush or be anxious. Just relax, listen and trust. God’s got you more than you know. He does everything better than we do! When we seek Him first, we everything we desire comes to us in His perfect time.
