Patience & God’s Timing- God’s Word Today & Thoughts to Ponder
God’s Word Today:
Romans 8:28 NCV
We know that in everything God works for the good of those who love him. They are the people he called, because that was his plan.
Thoughts to Ponder:
“Good things come to those who wait” and “Patience is a virtue.” Hearing these for years while growing up, I took it heart that things happen at the right time when we least expect it. The reality is all of these happen in God’s perfect time.
I’ve always been told, by my Dad and Mom, that I’m their most patient and prayerful child. As I look back, I can recall points in my life when my patience and prayer habit were tested.
I’ve started to grow impatient once again – in plans, expectations, health problems, family matters and other difficulties. But then today, as I read this verse, it compelled me to look back and see how God has led through the years.
It reminded me, He is always looking out for our own good. His heart is filled with great things in store for us. He has a plan for you and for me, and we should never try to second guess His timing for He knows better than us.
Thank you for this reminder for us to be always patient and prayerful for all of the plans and concerns that are at times frustrating us.
Let us always remember that your plan and the time for these to be manifested are perfect in every way.
In His time, In His Time He makes all things beautiful in His time. Lord please show me every day As You’re teaching me Your way That You do just what You say In Your time.
In Your time, In Your Time You make all things beautiful in Your time. Lord my life to You I bring May each song I have to sing Be to you a lovely thing In Your time.
Praises and glory be to You for everything!
In Jesus Name, Amen.
