Topic: The Timing Of God Is Never Late

“He has made everything beautiful in its time. Also He has put eternity in their hearts, except that no one can find out the work that God does from beginning to end.” – Ecclesiastes 3:11 NKJV

If you study and look through the scriptures, you will always see that the timing of God is never late. God is never late! He is always on time! And the scripture tells us in Romans 8:28: “And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to His purpose”. We know, we are not ignorant! We are supposed to know. We should be armed with the understanding that the Lord knows how to use both the good, the bad and the ugly for our good. He knows how to turn things around together for those that love Him and for them that are called according to His purpose.

God has called you according to His purpose; therefore, everything that is around you that looks ugly is turning around. Don’t ever settle for the ugly situation because God is at work. At times we don’t see it with our eyes. But remember we walk by faith and not by sight! We don’t see all that is happening behind the scene but I guarantee you that no matter what the situation is, it is turning around. It must turn around because ‘beauty for ashes, oil of joy for mourning and the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness’ are your entitlement in Christ.

In a very short time from now, your mouth will testify. You have prayed and you have looked up to Him, your face will not be ashamed. It may look as if your prayers are not answered, but let me assure you that God is working it out for you. The devil is a liar! Don’t look at the circumstances and the challenges! Put your eyes on God. He who has begun the good work will complete it. Your testimony will not be delayed.
