"When, God, When?"

Second Peter 3:8 reminds us that God has His own sense of timing. God does not move in our timing. He is never late, but He is usually not early either. He is often the God of the midnight hour. He sometimes waits until the last second before He gives us what we need.

We must learn to trust God's timing. But before we can do that, we must come to the place where we are broken before Him. What I mean is that our self-will and our spirit of independence must be broken before God is free to work His will in our lives and circumstances. Before He intervenes on our behalf, He has to be sure that we are not going to take matters into our own hands and do something out of His perfect timing.

Galatians 6:9 says, "And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap,if we faint not" (King James Version). The interesting thing about this scripture is that it always seems to encourage people. Yet really, in this verse, God does not tell us when something is going to happen because "due season" is not specific. If we start checking references that have to do with timing in the Bible, we will find descriptions like: "at the appointed season, in due time, in due season."

Many times when I am waiting on God in a situation and I get discouraged about the time it is taking for Him to answer, someone gives me one of those kinds of scriptures and it encourages me. I still do not know any details because "due time" is really just the time that God knows is right, but the scripture does remind me to trust God.

David wrote a power passage in Psalm 31:14, 15: "But I trusted in, relied on, and was confident in You, O Lord; I said, You are my God. My times are in Your hands; deliver me from the hands of my foes and those who pursue me and persecute me." Like David, we must learn to put our confidence in the Lord, trusting Him to deliver us out of our circumstances-and into the next right thing-in His perfect timing.
