Delays, Delays, Delays

Habakkuk 2:3 For still the vision awaits its appointed time; it hastens to the end—it will not lie. If it seems slow, wait for it; it will surely come; it will not delay. (ESV)

Can I ask you to think back to the last time your plans were delayed, frustrated. How did you feel? How did you react? What did you say to God, hmm?

Have you ever noticed how things don’t always fall into place exactly when you want them to? You have your heart set on something good, but it gets delayed again and again. It’s so frustrating!

And yet … I don’t know about you, but as I look back on my life I can see how time and time again, I was wanting to run ahead of God. When I’d just become a Christian and I was in Bible College I was so fired up, so ready to get out there and start doing things for God … or so I thought.

But God wasn’t ready and to tell you the truth, in hindsight, neither was I. It was eight years before He’d made the changes in me that He needed to make, before He released me into doing what I’m doing right now. Eight years can feel like an incredibly long time when you’re all fired up. But then, God’s timing is always perfect.

You and I, we can’t see the big picture. We want things to go this way or that now. Right … now!! But we don’t understand the trials that He needs to lead us through to get us ready.

God does have a plan for our lives, yours and mine. It’s a good and perfect plan and His timing will be absolutely impeccable. Just be patient. It will surely come.

That’s God’s Word. Fresh … for you … today.
