IS TIME REALLY ON MY SIDE? Bible Verses show that God has everything under control.
What images come to mind when you hear the following words and phrases:
What kinds of emotions do reading these words trigger? Aren’t they capable of creating tension and stress? If you are not careful and prayerful, this level of distress can cause you to become less faithful to God as King Ahaz did in 2 Chronicles 28:22.
While in prayer this morning, I heard the Holy Spirit calmly reassure me that “The Father is Timeless.” Because God is timeless, He doesn’t operate on our time schedules or by our deadlines. Time doesn’t have the same meaning or quantity to Him as it does to us.
Because He is timeless, He has no beginning or end. He is the Beginning and the End; the Alpha and the Omega. Therefore, when He moves on our behalf, He moves in HIS time (not ours). He has already told us that there is a season and a time to every purpose under the heaven. (Eccl. 3:1) Therefore, God has everything under control. His timing is always on time for working things out for our good.
What then shall we say? Rest assured that if God is for us, then time is on our side. Who or what can be against us when God is for us? Be not like King Ahaz, remain faithful to God.
Our job is not to be anxious about the timing, but to continue in praise, prayer, faith, and expectation until the Father intercedes on our behalf, rescuing and restoring us. Hosea 10:12NIV encourages us to “Sow for yourselves righteousness, reap the fruit of unfailing love, and break up your unplowed ground; for it is time to seek the LORD, until he comes and showers righteousness on you.”
We should always remember to thank God for helping us; never forgetting to give Him the glory for what He does and has done. For Apostle Paul wrote (2 Corinthians 6:2NLT): “God says, “At just the right time, I heard you. On the day of salvation, I helped you.” Indeed God is ready to help you right now. Today is the day of salvation.”
