Your desires and His timing

"Your desires and His timing"

There's a time for everything and a season for every activity under heaven-Ecclesiastes 3:1 NIV

Have you ever asked God for something and didn't get it? Like the majority of us, you probably have. As with me, you've more than likely gotten mad or upset with God. Isn't that funny-us getting mad at/with God!

In Psalms 37:4 NIV the Bible says delight yourself in the Lord and He'll give you the desires of your heart. Well that means we're set-right. Wrong! Just because we ask for whatever doesn't mean that it's in the right time frame for us to receive it. Being that God sees the hole picture and we only see a glimpse of it God telling us no or wait is really for our good. How can that be? Does God not know best?

If God tells us no we shouldn't whine and pout about it but only shout out "thank you Jesus". By rejoicing we're showing God that we trust Him (blessed is the one who trust in the Lord- Jeremiah 17:7 NIV). If He tells us to wait then we need to understand that making us wait is only to help our faith be proven genuine (1 Peter 1:7 NIV).

So the next time you approach God about blessing you with whatever try asking him if your desires match His timing first.

If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
