God's Perfect Timing

Sunday, October 02, 2016


READ
And so it was that Abraham, having waited long and endured patiently, realized and obtained what God had promised. (Hebrews 6:15)

REFLECT
I struggle with patience when I’m witnessing to someone. Because I love the Lord so passionately, it’s hard for me to understand why other people don’t love Him as soon as they learn about Him. Tonight I was in a small group when someone made a comment that opened my eyes. He said that just taking someone to church isn’t enough… You can’t leave it up to the preacher.

This was a revelation to me because I’d never thought of it that way. Witnessing to others is much more than just inviting them to church. Witnessing comes through your actions, words, and even non-verbal communication. Hebrews 6:15 shows that waiting and trusting in the Lord results in God fulfilling his promise.

Even if you don’t save somebody the first time you bring them to church, it’s okay because you planted the seed. It’s not up to us to push religion upon others, even if we believe it’s for their own good. God’s timing is perfect, and he places people in your life for a reason. Be content knowing that you did your best to witness to that person and God will do the rest!

PRAY
Father, help me to practice patience. Remind me that You are in control, and thy will be done. In the meantime, guide me to serve You the best that I can. Thank You for redeeming us. I love You! Amen.
