God on Time

The gas needle teetered too close to E for my comfort. Calculating our bank balance and the miles we had to drive before payday increased my anxiety.

When thereís only one income, things get stretched. And they were. We prayed. My next paycheck was almost two weeks away, and our gas tank was thirsty. As I wondered how Iíd get to work the following day, a small check for editing work completed arrived. Just enough for gas. But Godís provision continued. We sold a piece of furniture at a local consignment shop, our pastor asked me to preach, and a local organization sent us a generous donation. We needed gas; God gave much more. But in his time.

Danielís prayer wasnít answered immediately either. Since the first day you began to pray for understandingÖyour request has been heardÖBut for twenty-one days the spirit prince of the kingdom of Persia blocked my way (Daniel 10:12-13 NLT).

Unbelief and doubt delay Godís answers. Jesus said I should believe I have what Iím praying for (Mark 11:24). When I donít, Iím wasting my time and his.

Spiritual warfare can delay Godís answers. These wars occur between demonic beings and Godís angels. No need to worry though; God is all-powerful.

The answers we seek can also be delayed because they arenít Godís will or timing. Godís answer is conditioned by my request matching his will. Occasionally, he may even give me what isnít his will to teach me lessons. Such as when he let the Israelites have an earthly king.

Furthermore, Godís timetable is usually different than mine. I keep this in mind when the answers seem to trickle in.

Does it appear God has forgotten you? Trust his timing and believe he has your best interests at heart.

Prayer: When it appears that Youíve forgotten us, Father of love teach us to trust Your timing rather than be anxious over our immediate situation. www.lovelinesfromgod.com

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