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 season or time clock, He is well aware of it.  We on the other hand have no way of understanding God’s timing.  All we can do is trust in Him – knowing that God is always on time. Trusting God can be difficult in times when we feel our world is falling apart and answers to our prayers are needed yesterday.

Looking back, we are sometimes able to put the puzzle together and understand why things did not happen yesterday but today. But even if we don’t see it in hindsight, we still know that God’s timing is perfect. Remember that Jesus came at just the right time to save the world; this also means that God will always come through for you and me – at just the right time!

Psalm 121: 1-4: “I lift up my eyes to the mountains — where does my help come from? My help comes from the Lord, the Maker of heaven and earth. He will not let your foot slip— he who watches over you will not slumber; indeed, he who watches over Israel will neither slumber nor sleep.”
