On Time

9 08 2010

We are people bound by time. We can’t escape it. It permeates our perspective, priorities, and perceptions. Sometimes, time “flies.” Other occasions seem to exaggerate the ticking of the clock. The years with our children go by very quickly even as days filled with homework, little sleep, practices, and toys find us watching for bed time to arrive.

God exists outside of time. He created it and uses it for His purposes. Because God is not bound by time, His perspective is different than ours. He works in time for our good. From my viewpoint, it often seems that God is moving too slowly. I want an answer, some intervention, a little miracle, a great measure of peace, a dose of grace, or a big bunch of patience right now!

This weekend I heard someone say – “God is right on time, every time, all the time.” It was a truth of which I needed to be reminded. I get frustrated by time, defined by time, measured by time, and even ruled by time. Yet, time is held in the hands of God. He will use time as a blessing in our lives to draw us closer to Himself. God handles time according to the nature of His heart – with justice, goodness, truth, and love. Whatever our perspective may be, God is right on time, every time, all the time.

My Jesus Resolution today is to trust God timing. Jesus rested in God’s timing completely. He moved according to His will and walked in the timing of His purpose. God works in time for my good. No matter what today brings, God is never impatient, never restricted by the clock, and never late. He is always right on time.

Amen, Sista! Love your post. It brought to mind the quote, “The time is always right to do what is right.” Have a blessed week!
