I was sitting here just reflecting on God’s timing in answering prayer. Believe me I would love to tell you that if you stay in faith, if you believe, then God will always answer your prayer within 24 hours, or at least within the first week. But we know that’s not reality. God promises He will be true to His word, but He never puts a time frame on it. In fact, He tells us that we need patience to see the promises come to pass.(Hebrews 6:12) Sure, it would be a lot easier if God told us when we were going to get well, when we were going to get the right job, when we would meet the right person, when our child would come back to Him or a myriad of other things. But the truth is, that wouldn’t take any faith. It takes faith to say, “God, I don’t know when You are going to do it, but I trust You enough to believe that You will do it, that the answer is already in my future, it just hasn’t been manifested yet.”
Today and every day let me encourage you to allow this to be your prayer: “God, give me the grace to accept Your timing.” That means you’re asking for God’s strength, His supernatural empowerment to stand strong while you are waiting. Choose to keep believing, choose to praise Him, and choose to accept His timing knowing that He is faithful.
