There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under heaven:
We have to know that God has a perfect timing for everything. When we pray to him ans ask him for things in prayer, know that he is listening to you and that he hears you. There is a condition: We have to wait until the proper time. Think about how God create man. He could have created man before everything else but there was a time for him to do so. No matter what we are going through God's timing is perfect. If it is that job you have been waiting for, or a family member to come to christ. It may be to be finicially stable. Maybe you have been waiting for your spouse to come to know christ. Just know that he has it under control. Today you may not have recieved what you are waiting for but know that each day that goes by, you are a day closer to what you have been asking for. If you are a child of the Most High God he has your best interest in mind and he is just waiting to get you what you need, he see's that you want it bad or that you need it bad but he knows all things and he knows the perfect time where it will bless you and you will know that it is him that gave you what you are asking for.
Thoughts To Ponder:
Sometimes if we get what we ask for when we are not fully focused we may miss God and we may miss the lesson and instructions he wants us to have when he gives us something. We don't want to look back or be impatient and miss God in our lives. Lot's wife looked backe because she was not fully focused on what God was trying to do. She wanted better but she has distractions and she did not make it. The same as we wait until the perfect time to give good things to our children and families like we see something they want and we say " It will be perfect to give them that on their birthday or anniversay etc. Then how much more your Heavenly Father carefully plans and wait until what you ask will be perfect for you, and in perfect timing.
But Lot's wife looked back, and she became a pillar of salt. Genesis 19:26
We should thank God that he wants the blessings he gives and the gifts he gives to be just right for us. He wants us to enjoy and savor everything he gives us that we ask him for in prayer. So thank him today!
Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of lights with whom there is no variation or shadow due to change.
May he grant you your heart's desire and fulfill all your plans!
