Everything happens in the perfect time when God is involved.
“Until the time that his word came: The word of the LORD tried him.”
Psalm 105:19 (17-24)
Joseph lived a godly life yet suffered for 20 years in Egypt. He was free the moment his time came. God exalted Joseph in due time.
King Solomon said there is a time for everything.
“To everything, there is a season and a time to every purpose under the heaven… What profit has he that worketh in that wherein he laboureth? I have seen the travail, which God hath given to the sons of men to exercise in it. He has made everything beautiful in his time. Also, he has set the world in their heart so that no man can find out the work that God makes from the beginning to the end.” Ecclesiastes 3:1-11
Peter reminds us that when we humble ourselves, God exalts us in due time.
Humble yourselves, therefore, under the mighty hand of God that he may exalt you in due time.
1 Peter 5:6
God is for us. Not against us. When we come to Him in time of need, He answers us as well (Hebrews 4:16). The poor man cried out, and the Lord saved him from his troubles.
The time of God is always the right time
What is the best time to connect with God? All the time. The best time is always now.
When Jesus entered the earth two thousand years ago, it was the right time. The Romans introduced the money system, burdening everyone to pay taxes. Fast forward 2000 plus years, and here we are burdened by gas prices and the necessities of life.
When will Jesus come? Any time. When Jesus comes, it will be a perfect time.
Till He comes, let’s give our time to God so He may perfect us in time. Maranatha, Praise God and Amen!
