Perfect Timing - Karen Huffaker

perfect timing
How long Lord? Will You forget me forever? Psalm 13:1 NASB

“Timing is everything.”

I’ve often used the familiar quote, and it’s so true. But waiting is difficult. Doubts and fears set in, and we second-guess ourselves, plans, and decisions.

Later, we often learn the timing had a positive impact. God may have protected us from harm. Or we were in the right place at the right time to receive a blessing, connect with someone special, or get a great job or promotion.

God is in the apparent delays. His timing is always perfect. We can’t be in a hurry as we wait for the Lord because He doesn’t rush into things. And we shouldn’t worry while we wait. He hasn’t forgotten us. The Lord works behind the scenes to accomplish His will and answer prayers.

God has a reason for delays. He has a greater plan and purpose. Instead of despairing and giving up, we can look up. He will accomplish something big, although we may never see what He is doing.

David tells about the benefits of waiting on the Lord throughout the Psalms. He describes many of his trials and how he waited and directed his prayers to God as he did.

On many occasions, I’ve trusted God in the waiting, knowing His timing for all things is perfect and beyond my limited expectations—when moving out of state, returning to college, finding the right home, and launching a career.

Trust God to do something great in His perfect timing.
