God’s perfect time
God perfect timing. When you think that God does not answer your requests, it is because He has something better for you. Many times we pray for a desire, and when we do not see the result of our requests, we think that God does not listen to us. The thoughts of the Lord are not our thoughts; He always has better plans than we had thought.
His perfect Plan is an order predestined by the time of the Lord, not ours. The problem is that when we ask God, we want things at the time of us and not at the time of the Lord.
This does not mean that God has forgotten your need; the Lord knows when is the right time to respond to your needs and your dreams. Sometimes we have to go a long way to see our thoughts and our needs come true.
If you are faithful to the Lord and believe by faith, you will be able to see your dreams and your requests come true; you remember that “Although the vision will take even a while, it will hurry towards the end, and will not lie; although I will wait, wait for it, because it will surely come, it will not take long” (Habakkuk 2: 3).
There are things that are out of our hands, and it only depends on what God is going to do with our lives and our time because His clock is not equal to ours. The Divine Clock of the Lord does not go to the timer of us. The Clock of God walks in the Perfect Time; instead, our clock tends to fall behind or stop due to different circumstances of our lives. The clock of us is directed using the Kronos time. Kronos time is human time; it is the time where anxieties occur, which is led by the hours and minutes.
The Clock of the Lord our God never stops and is not governed by the hours or by the hands of the minutes. The Clock of the Lord is ruled to the Perfect Time of God better known the Kairos Time. Kairos Time is the Lord’s Time, and everything that comes from the Lord is good. Under the Lord’s Time, we can feel the conviction that God is in control of our circumstances. When we rest in the Lord’s Time, we don’t have to fear because God is in control at all times.
On Wednesday morning my son got up in pain and waking me up, he said: “Mami has a stomach ache”, I quickly went to the medicine cabinet in search of medicines. While I was looking for cure, I talked to the Lord for the speedy recovery of my son. Inside the medication, I had a bottle of anointed oil, and I grabbed it to anoint my son’s body believing in the words he says in James 5: 14-15 “Is anyone sick among you? Call the elders of the church and pray for him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord. And the prayer of faith will save the sick, and the Lord will raise him; and if they have committed sins, they will be forgiven.”
When I anointed my son, I felt an immense peace within me, but at the same time, I felt a need that I had to run to the hospital. While we were going to the hospital, the Lord told me that He was in control of my son and the people who were going to take care of him, so he was not afraid. In the hospital my son began to deteriorate, even so, I felt a peace that I still cannot describe, I was no longer interceding for my son, I was interceding for the people who were around my son in the name of Jesus.
When they were tested, the doctor informed me that it was necessary to have appendicitis surgery. I thought I was going to cry and worry, but I only heard the voice of God telling me: “Don’t worry, I’m in control.” When they took my son on the way to the operating room, I felt that I was trembling but once the Lord sustained me and said: “I am in control.” I still had not administered anesthesia to my son, and I said: “son… before you enter the operating room, I want you to pray to the Lord, and so did he. His prayer was short but very precise, and he said: “Lord confided that You would get me out of this soon.”
My condition as a mother made me groan, but even in my groans, I kept hearing the voice of the Lord that said, “everything will be fine, don’t worry,” “everything is in my control.” In the waiting room, after an hour, the doctor came with the good news that my son had left the operation well and also told me: “It was good that he came at the right time, if he had waited half an hour more, your son could have run the risk of appendix exploding.”
Today I thank the Lord because we came to the hospital in His Perfect Time. Today my son can bear witness to the greatness of the Lord and His Perfect Time. Praise Jehovah because He is good because His mercy is forever!
Thank you, Heavenly Father, for your Perfect Time, teach us to wait in Your Time. Thank you for arriving at Your Time. I am grateful to You. Amen.
