Saturday, November 26, 2011: God's perfect timing. I am a very impatient person and I don't think that our instant gratification culture has made it any better. I want what I want when I want it and I get antsy and whiny when I don't get it. The thing is, God's timing is perfect. He knows what we need and when we need it, and if we are His children, His plans for us are for our best and for the advancement of His kingdom. This isn't something I always believe though I know it to be true, but it's a good thing to remember, and to be thankful for. The hard thing is realizing that it may never be the perfect time for me to have something, and therefore I won't have it, but then I can be thankful that again, God has the best plans in mind for me. So while I am waiting for things I hope to have, I will thank Him for being both good and sovereign.
11 For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future." Jeremiah 29:11
