God's Timing

"Dear woman, that's not out problem," Jesus replied.  "Mine hour has not yet come." (John 2:4 NLT)

   During my tenure in the U.S. Navy, I played softball on the base team.  My favorite position was first base, and hitting in the cleanup spot my forte.  What's the key to becoming a solid hitter?  If you ask any hitting coach, he will tell you, "It's all about timing."  Being able to recognize the pitch and timing its delivery is the secret to successful hitting.

   Timing also plays a critical role in the believer's walk with the Lord.  Answers to prayer are dependent upon God's timing.  Making important life decisions and carrying them out requires timing.  Nothing in life can be done without some kind of timing. 

   Jesus accomplished his plan of redemption in accordance with God's timetable.  God works in your life and mine in the same way.  His timing is perfect.  He makes no mistakes.  He's never late.  No stone is left unturned. 

   Are you aware of his timing in your life?  Try to recall a time when God worked in your life according to his timetable.
