I want to encourage you. With God, there’s always a way.
You may be saying, I don’t know how… Or, I don’t have enough… Or, it doesn’t look like it is possible.
God is not beholden to the natural; He is the Orchestrator of the supernatural.
Mary probably thought, there is no way that I can carry “the son of the Most High” (Lu. 1:32). It must have seemed preposterous when an angel said she would. But, with God, she did — it happened — she birthed the Son of God.
David must have figured he’d end up managing sheep all his life. King? I wonder if he thought that impossible. Sure enough, Samuel, the prophet, passed by His strong, and probably good-looking, brothers and picked David. And the Lord said to Samuel, “Rise and anoint him; this is the one.” (1 Sam. 16:12)
The Lord promoted David, independent of looks.
It wasn’t until more than a decade later that David became King. Sure, he could have thought, forget this, God has forgotten me. But, God never forgot. He doesn’t forget you, either.
God is outside of time, yet always on time.
God showed up and David became King.
Don’t lose hope. God is always on time. He is independent of your perfection, your bank account, or your perfect actions. God is always faithful. And, right on time.

I’ve always been struck by the people in Hebrews 11 who died without receiving what was promised in their lifetime. They’re commended for their faith as much as the “heroes” listed earlier in the chapter. May we always trust God to keep His promises in His own time.
This is such timely encouragement for me today. I needed to hear that the plan of God will not be thwarted.
Thank you. Amen.

I have to remind myself that God’s timing is not usually my timing. I must not grow weary or faint.
Such great words of encouragement, Kelly! Thanks so much for sharing and thanks so much for hosting! Big hugs and many blessings to you! 🙂
Yes, God is always on time. I am learning that this week as I wait and wait for answers.
God’s timing will test you, but his timing is best.
It’s so good to know that our amazing God is always in control and ALWAYS on time as you said so well, Kelly. He’s good at the impossible. That way He receives all the glory.
