God’s Timetable

Keepsakes are reminders. Some are happy, others are sad. These experiences are reminders of mountain top experiences and the valleys throughout life.

On the wall in my office hangs a rock suspended by four push pins. The stone is flat and about two inches in diameter. While walking years ago in the midst of solving a dilemma, the Lord reminded me of David facing Goliath. The shepherd boy only needed one stone to remedy the difficulty. David’s confidence and reliance upon God was his strength for facing his giant.

The same principle applies today in our lives. Whatever your situation, you will be better off seeking God’s guidance for his direction, assistance, and timing. The Lord knows what is going on in your life. Actually, he knew about them before time began.

The amazing thing is God knows the outcome. He has a solution ready. The Lord is just waiting for you to ask for His help and be patient until everything is in place for you to experience His divine intervention. Often, we fail to wait for our wonderful God to act. We get in a hurry. Thinking we know His timetable better than our all-knowing God does.

The next time you get impatient, stop, and ask yourself, “Do I depend upon God? Am I willing to wait on Him? Does my problem need solving today, tomorrow, or later?” Would you wait for His answer? When you know the answer, then is the time for action, but not before. 

The way I learned this lesson is by making mistakes. Getting ahead of God is not a good thing. If you do, soon you will realize your mistake. Remind yourself God’s timetable is always best.
