We Must Not Get Impatient

When the time of God is right, it is as if things begin to accelerate.
I know someone who has faced difficulty over a long period of time, especially financially. It was a difficult and long season that seemed to go from bad to worse. In the midst of all this, God had given promises of provision and supply. It seemed unlikely and each day as this individual waited he got older and the promises seemed even more remote. But in a moment God began to turn it all around. At an unlikely age and after a great deal of time things began to change dramatically and the promises began to be fulfilled. Within three years God provided what most people will not acquire or achieve in a lifetime.
Why am I telling you this? Because I want to encourage you and remind you that when God begins to move, things move fast.

 Isaiah 60:22 The least of you will become a thousand, the smallest a mighty nation. I am the LORD; in its time I will do this swiftly. (NIV)

Often times as we are facing the issues that we are trusting God to resolve, we tend to get impatient. We can get to the point where we think that this is the time that God should act and move in our circumstances. The writer of the Psalms felt the same way and he wrote:

Psalm 119:126 Lord, it is time for you to act.

The strange thing is that God’s time and our time does not always coincide.

Isaiah 55:9 For just as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than yours, and my thoughts than yours.

·The issue is to trust God and not become impatient.
