A Much Needed Reminder on the Perfect Timing of GOD.
All of these people did great things for the LORD because they realized at one point in their life that GOD’s timing is perfect. And GOD’s way is the only way.
And always remember, the LORD is interested in availability and HE will ensure you have the capability. Because in your flesh you wont have the capability but HE does.
When we get tangled up in our problems, we need to be still and rest in the LORD. GOD wants us to be still so that HE can untangle the knot as it were.
Accepting that GOD’s timing is perfect is one of those building blocks of our spiritual growth and of our faith. And it is key to resting in the LORD.
We are told to number or appoint our days. It means to live each day appointing it to live in the PPOG, to live in and trust in HIS Perfect timing.
EPH 5:16, Look carefully then how you walk, not as unwise but as wise, making the best use of the time, because the days are evil. Therefore, do not be foolish, but understand what the will of the Lord is.
One thing about time, we all have the same amount of it every day. No one can buy more, no one can steal another’s. It is a set amount that everyone gets the same amount of.
Appointing our days to live inside the PPOG, timing is one of the most important factors in every area of life.
Teach us to number (to manah) our days, That we may gain a heart of wisdom (understanding, discernment). Help us LORD to appoint (manah) our days. Appoint them LORD to accomplish your will to live inside of the plan you have for us.
It can be defined as the best time or speed for doing something in order to achieve the maximum results. In the theatre, timing is an important aspect of the production or performance to achieve maximum effect.
And of course our timing in the flesh is usually wrong, oh occasionally we are in the right place at the right time, remember a broken clock is right twice a day.
Now man’s most burning questions throughout the ages are: Where Do We Come From? Why are we here Are We? Where Are We Going?
We know who we are, we are HIS regardless of our current condition, our position is securely in Christ Jesus.
To think I did all that And may I say - not in a shy way
Oh no, oh no, not me
I did it my way
Rather we should be saying at the end of our life I did it (for the most part) Your way Father.
No place is perfect timing more important than in warfare.
In war, truly timing is everything.
Our founding fathers pledged their lives, their fortunes, and their sacred honor in the defense of liberty and freedom. From a worldly view, they were almost certain – to lose all of those things without gaining the liberty and freedom they risked it all for.
2CH 20:17, “You will not have to fight this battle. Take up your positions; stand firm and see the deliverance the LORD will give you, Judah and Jerusalem.
Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged. Go out to face them tomorrow, and the LORD will be with you.”
Don’t overlook GOD and HIS hand in the form of HIS divine intervention.
JOH 15:5, “I am the vine; you are the branches. If you remain in me and I in you, you will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing.”
However, the Americans had a brilliant General, and they had the will to defend freedom from tyranny and oh yeah, the creator of the universe, the Lord Jesus Christ was on their side.
“No people can be bound to acknowledge the invisible Hand which conducts the affairs of men more than those of the United States. Every step which they have advanced to the character of an independent nation seems to have been distinguished by GOD’s providence”
And GOD provided for them the perfect helper, an Indian by the name of Squanto.
He spoke English so he could communicate with the Pilgrims and also serve as their mediator with other Indians.
In the midst of that life, he was introduced to Christianity.
The United States was not formed by chance; it was the creation of an all-powerful Providence. That’s why Satan hate America. Perfect? No but it is GOD’s client Nation.
“No people can be bound to acknowledge the invisible Hand which conducts the affairs of men more than those of the United States. Every step which they have advanced to the character of an independent nation seems to have been distinguished by GOD’s providence"
D-Day, was the greatest amphibious invasion in history. But before it could take place, many months of careful preparation had to be put in. Everything had to be just right.
What if the weather had been good?
What if Hitler hadn’t taken control of the panzer divisions. What if he hadn’t left orders not to be awakened.
What if Rommel had not been away?
What if Eisenhower hadn’t been selected as supreme commander?
If you’re ever have or are now, struggling with GOD’s timing in some area of your life, the Bible is full of encouragement and reminders that GOD’s timing is perfect.
Remember also that it is not GOD that doesn’t understand why things happen the way they do, HE knows all things.
It is not GOD that doesn’t understand, it is us, it is you and I.
Once we can see that or at least believe that, our life, your life can become laser focused on living inside of GOD’s plan and thus glorifying HIM.
