God's perfect timing
5.15.15 God's perfect timing
Well I've been out of work for almost 2 months, I've had interviews but so far still nothing, 1 place called me today and said someone else got the job, but I know it's not my time but God's time and when He finds the job for me He'll give it to me. So anytime your in a hurry to get an answer or waiting for something to happen make sure you remember it's God's time not your time.
God has perfect timing; never early, never late. It takes a little patience and a whole lot of faith... but it's worth the wait. God Vine.com
Billy Graham said: God has a plan for the life of every Christian. Every circumstance, every turn of destiny, is for your good. It is working together for completeness. His plan for you is being perfected. All things working together for your good and for His glory. As a young Christian, Ruth, my wife, wanted to be a missionary, as were her father and mother. But God had other plans for her life. Changing circumstances revealed God’s will to her, and she was happy where God had placed her. So many of us ask God to change the circumstances to suit our desires, instead of us conforming our wills to His. Don’t let circumstances distress you. Rather, look for the will of God for your life to be revealed in and through those circumstances.
Trusting in God, I believe is the key to success and happiness in life.
Whatever the issue you are facing, first bring it to the Lord in prayer. Is it really what he wants you to be hoping for? Psalm 37:4 tells us ...
'Delight yourself in the LORD and he will give you the desires of your heart.'
If you delight yourself in God he will delight in God give you what you want, that is the desires of your heart. Don't get me wrong, He isn't going to start giving you the best cars, the nicest house and lots of material things, because God isn't concerned with those things. He wants you to 'delight' in Him, to seek Him and to love Him and spend time with Him in prayer and Bible study. If you are seeking after God in this way, the desires you'll have will be to serve him and to always live according to what the Bible says. It is important that you trust in God's word and not rely solely on your feelings.
Psalm 37 goes on to say ...
'Commit your way to the LORD; trust in him and he will do this: He will make your righteousness shine like the dawn, the justice of your cause like the noonday sun. Be still before the LORD and wait patiently for him; do not fret when men succeed in their ways, when they carry out their wicked schemes.'
God will work things out in your life if you trust in him. It is possible that you may have to go through certain trials and wait for his answers ... 'And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose.' Romans 8:28
God has plans for your life. He knows everything about you. He made you. He loves you, as the following selection of verses from Psalm 139 confirms ...
'O LORD, you have searched me and you know me. You know when I sit and when I rise; you perceive my thoughts from afar. You discern my going out and my lying down; you are familiar with all my ways. Before a word is on my tongue you know it completely, O LORD. For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother's womb. your eyes saw my unformed body. All the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be.'
Remember, God has plans for your life and wants the best for you. He allowed his Son to die so that your sins could be forgiven. In Jeremiah 29:11 is says ... 'For I know the plans I have for you, declares the LORD, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.'
So in conclusion, be encouraged. Wait patiently on the Lord. Trust in God and He will work things out in your life. God will use you as you are, if you make yourself available to Him. Talk to God today and ask Him to give you the desires of your heart.
So I guess what I'm saying is for those of us looking for a job since we are in the same boat, we need to be patient and wait on God to give us the job He desires us to have.
God I know you have the perfect job that you want me to have all I have to do is wait on your timing. I think you for allowing me to have a time of rest and to get somethings done that needed to be done. I can honestly say I know even me losing my job you were apart of it because you knew it was time for me to move on and I love and thank you for that. Now God please be with my facebook family and friends and know I love you. I ask this in Jesus Name Amen
