I've been thinking about God's timing a lot lately, and am seeing more and more how His timing is usually pretty different than mine. It brings me back to surrender and knowing that if I am able to surrender the timing of my life to Him, I will have an unlikely peace about the life He has chosen to bless me with. The timing sometimes seems slow, or in some cases way too fast, but either way it becomes a faith walk that He knows more of what is best for me, than I do.
I read in Ecclesiastes this morning, this is what chapter 3 verse 11 says:
"He has made everything appropriate in its time. He has also set eternity in their heart, yet so that man will not find out the work which God has done from the beginning even to the end."
I have to remember this verse today, as I walk my life and know that the timing of everything is made appropriate by Him. And, whatever happens in life, I can rest in Him knowing that He has set eternity in my heart. Eternity, who can complain about that? Whatever the timing or pace of life, my faith can hold fast to the promise that eternity is set in my heart. I am a forever being, there's plenty of time!
Say That Again, Lord God, You have Your hand on my time. You are working in a way that I do not understand all the time, from the beginning of time, even to the end of the walk on earth.
