In His time, in His time, He makes all things beautiful. In His time.God has time for everything He has planned to do. He is in no rush to do things. He is never found in a haste in fulfilling His plans. He does it all in His time.We, are always in a rush, in a rush to get our things done as soon as possible. In a haste to attempt things which come to our mind, the things we plan. Because of which, we fail to recognize that God is different. We want our blessings and promises He has given to be fulfilled soon as He has spoken of it. When we get undesired results and see that nothing is happening in the direction to see His blessings unfold or His promises fulfilled, we do mistakes. We start to think and do things on our own, supposing it be according to God's plan. Abraham was a man of faith. He trusted God. He believed on the One who called and separated him. But, he kept doing things which was not as per God's plan and ultimately, the promises and blessings in his life was delayed. He came out of the land of Ur, not alone but also with his brother and his house and his father. God waited till Abraham was separated from them. He did not reach the Promised Land till then. He went into Hagar to have a son, again, not part of God's plan. Consequently, the Promised son was born to him in his old age.God's time and plan are extremely different than that we think. He Himself says, My plans are not your plans, nor are My thoughts as thine. We fail to wait for God to carry out His plans. Ultimately, we let Him delay His promises to us. Joseph was one of God's choice. He dreamt about his father and brothers bowing before him. He did not take an action to try to fulfill God's vision. He was thrown into a pit. He remained steadfast and waited on for God to work. He was brought out from the pit but was sold as a slave. Still he did nothing but was God-fearing. He was taken to Potipher's house and then to the jail. He was faithful to God and did not murmer against God. Ultimately, God fulfilled His promise. All the events occurred in continuity from then on. The king saw a dream. Joseph was called to the king's palace. He was made the prime minister. There was famine. He saw the vision fulfilled. He yet remained humble. He was in tears when he saw his brothers, called for his beloved brother, Benjamin. Amazing life. Well, this is something that God expects from us. He wants to work in us but we work on our own instead. This is God's time. God fulfills His promises when He sees that we have completely given ourselves into His hands, for Him to work. God has time for everything He has purposed. It is then that His time comes. If we do things that is apart from His plan, He will have to wait untill we turn and come to Him. Let's therefore not delay God's plan but enable Him to work through us the things He has planned for us. We would then witness the marvelous ways of God in the twinkling of the eyes.God bless you.
The Spirit of the Lord GOD [is] upon me; because the LORD hath anointed me to preach good tidings unto the meek; he hath sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and the opening of the prison to [them that are] bound;
