As believers it’s important to understand that God’s timing is always perfect, just as all of God’s ways are perfect (Psalm 18:30; Galatians 4:4). At times it may ‘feel’ like the opposite but, life has taught me that waiting on God’s perfect timing is less exhausting than sitting around whining and complaining. Patience is indeed a virtue and our measure of it reveals the degree of trust we have in God’s timing. Remember, patience is also a spiritual fruit (Galatians 5:22), and Scripture makes it clear that God is pleased with us when we display this virtue: “Be still before the LORD and wait patiently for Him” (Psalm 37:7), for God is good to those who wait for Him (Lamentations 3:25). Typically, we start to questioning God’s timing when we are looking for guidance or deliverance from a difficult situation. We can rest assured, however, that our heavenly Father knows exactly where we are in our lives at every given moment. Look at this way, it’s always the better practice to wait awhile to allow things to fall into place than to rush and have things fall apart! God uses these waiting periods in our lives to bring out the best in us. Trials strengthens our patience and allows our Christian faith to mature and become complete-not lacking anything (James 1:3-4)! So today resonate on Psalm 18:30 and never forget that, “As for God, his way is [always] perfect: The Lord’s word is flawless; he shields all who take refuge in him.
