One-Two-Three- His Timing Not Mine Sets Me Free

Ecclesiastes 3:1 To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven:

Trusting God’s timing surely at times might be exceedingly challenging. However, it’s essential to understand that God has a plan for each and every one of us. And most important of all, please remember that His timing is perfect.

How can we put this thought process into action? Some of the ways that works for me, may do the same for you. These are just a few ways to help you trust God’s timing:

  1. Pray for patience: Pray for patience in your wait, ask God to give you insight and the wisdom to understand and seek His will for your life.
  2. Embrace the season you are in:  Here, I concentrate on the blessings in my life, the joy of loving Him. I don’t sit around and think about things I don’t have, instead I focus my mind on what I have in Christ. The blessings He’s bestowed, and continues to bestow, while praising Him daily.
  3. Follow His Word:  This is so important…read His Word and meditate on His promises. Bear in mind that our loving God is faithful and keeps His promises. He will never let us down, like the world does. He is above the world and all things. His Word is truth, and life affirming.
  4. Remember what He has done for you:  Sit and think, while calling to your mind all the times when God has come through for you in the past. This will solidify and help you trust Him in the present moment. Keep a diary or journal of all prayers answered, and all things He’s done…this will astound you each time and every time at His love for us.
  5. Be at peace with His divine purposes: Accept that God’s timing is not always our timing. Ecclesiastes 3:1 says, “To everything there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven.” Trust and know that our God has a perfect plan, designed specifically for YOU…and that everything will work out according to His will.

When we take all these into account and apply these things to our lives, we begin to accelerate in spiritual growth and discipline towards our journey and walk with Christ. We begin to unravel the veil of obscurity as we see things with a clarity in which we hadn’t before we accepted Him in our lives.

Acts 1:7: He said to them, “It is not for you to know times or epochs which the Father has fixed by His own authority;

Given all things said and done at the end of the day, God is in control. We have choices, yes…but ultimately, His hands will carve out the path and the timing for our experiences in life overall.

1 Tim 6:15 Which in his times he shall shew, who is the blessed and only Potentate, the King of kings, and Lord of lords;

Are you waiting on God? Are you making your own plans according to your will, or His? He’s waiting on you to wait on Him!

“Father, thank You for Your will and timing, may I recognize You are the way, the truth, and the life, and that through You all things are not only possible, but perfect, may Your will be done in my life, today, tomorrow and always, in Jesus’ name, Amen.”
