Waiting for God for His perfect timing can be a bit daunting and distressful, but I know at the end, it’s always the most beautiful moment we’ve ever experienced with Him. I took it from a blog post. It really is a good read, especially for the “galauers” who’s still single at 30s.
Check this post out, especially if you are waiting for God’s answer to your prayers.
Trusting God’s Timing
When are You going to bring me a mate? GOD, when is my business going to take off? When are my dreams going to come to pass?
We can relax knowing that God is in control, and at the perfect time He is going to make it happen. The scripture says, The vision is for appointed time. Though it tarry wait earnestly for it, for it will come to pass. “Appointed Time.”
But whenever it is we can rest assured that it will be in God’s perfect timing. It’s not going to be one second late. At exactly the right time, God is going to bring the perfect person into your life, and he will not be one second late. Be patient, It’s not the right time. Simply remain faithful and keep doing the best we can. Consider the possibility; we may be ready for what God has for us, but somebody else who is going to be involved is not ready yet. Just stay in an attitude of faith and learn to trust His timing. Don’t get in a hurry or try to force things.
To live our best life now, we must learn to trust God’s timing. Learn to trust His timing. Don’t go in a hurry; don’t grow impatient; don’t try to force doors to open. Don’t try to make things happen in our own strength. Let God do it His way.
The sad truth is, if we push hard enough, and if we’re so stubborn that we must have things in our way, God will sometimes allow us to undertake a project without His blessing or at the wrong time. The problem with that, of course, is when we start something in our own strength andin we’re own timing, we’re going to have to finish it and maintain it in our own strength.
When we let God start something, He’ll finish it for us. He’ll provide everything we need. When we try to force open doors and make things happen in our own strength, the end result is a constant strain on us and a drain on our resources. Life becomes a constant struggle. Nearly all joy, peace, and victory dwindle from our existence. That is not a place of contentment and satisfaction. Be careful! If God isn’t in what we are doing, we need to make a change.
Here is where many people miss God’s favor. They know God has spoken to them; He has placed a dream within their hearts. But they then set about trying to fulfill God’s plan on their own.
We must be aware that if we get out of God’s timing, it’s the same as getting out of God’s will. We need to be patient and let God bring His plan together at the appointed time. But when it’s God timing, it doesn’t matter what the surrounding circumstances look like. It doesn’t matter what people are telling us. If God says it’s time, then He will bring it to pass.
Understand, when we get out of God’s timing, we are stepping out of His favor. When we step out of His favor, we are operating on our own in the dark. I’m not saying that when we do something for God we’re not going to have adversity. But fighting the good fight of faith outside God’s timing can leave us constantly struggling, never having anything go in our way, never having any joy.
On the other hand when we’re in God’s timing, we can be in the midst of the biggest challenge of our life, and we’ll still be filled with joy. God will give us all the grace we need. If we will learn to trust His timing, He’s promised that at the right time, He will bring our dreams to pass and answer our prayers.
The answer will come, and it will be right on time…
