1 Timothy 2:5-6: “For, There is one God and one Mediator who can reconcile God and humanity—the man Christ Jesus. He gave his life to purchase freedom for everyone. This is the message God gave to the world at just the right time.”

God’s uncanny timing! Not at any given time, but at just the right time Jesus was born in Bethlehem – even though He came while His parents were on a trip far away from home and the circumstances of His delivery were less than accommodating.  Still, Jesus came at the proper time.

God’s timing definitely veers from human timing. Like clockwork our days are scheduled while our lives go through various seasons. The spring, summer, fall, and winter season of our lives represent our maturing process with its unique challenges:

1)      Spring: the challenge to grow

2)      Summer: the challenge to produce

3)      Fall: the challenge to harvest

4)      Winter: the challenge to accept that life has come to a full circle

While God is not subject to human seasons, still He is very well aware of how earth time affects us. Unfortunately, the same can’t be said about our understanding of God’s timing. Trusting Him can be difficult when we feel that the answers to our prayers were needed yesterday. In hindsight, we are sometimes able to put the puzzle together and understand His delay. Even without this type of closure, we need to remember that God always comes through for us – He does not fail us nor forsake us – and He is always on time.
