CAN YOU WAIT FOR THE TIME ❓
“You have need of patience, that …ye might receive the promise” (Heb. 10:36).
TEXT: Hebrews 10:35-39, Ecclesiastes. 3:1-3
Every day, we see people behaving as though God is never on time. We live in a restless world with impatient neighbours and busybody colleagues. We have little time for preparation and less for leisure. We wish we must be active and financially effective but often times, inactivity and structural unemployment become our lot. Realistically, it appears as though God has disappointed us. Or, is it that we have dissapointed God?
The experience of delay is written large on the lives of God’s people down through the human history, as observed in time and fufilment of bringing Isreal out of Egypt according to God’s promise. We even see God’s supposed silent years of our Lord Jesus in the obscure Nazareth village. Delay never thwarts God’s purpose rather it polishes His instruments.
The text for today admonishes that we need patience to hit our destinies. A universal parlance has it that winners never quit and quitters never win. A person might become a CEO at 35 of his family business and dies at 50. While another would become a CEO at 50 and live until 90 years. Someone is still single, while his/her friends got married ahead of him/her. Obama assumed office at 47 and retired at 55. Trump came to office at 70. Just as Jonathan started at 52 while buhari took over him at 73.
Absolutely, everyone in this world operates at his time zone. People around you might seem to go ahead of you. Some may seem behind you. The truth is that everyone is running his race based on his time. Do not envy any; don’t mock any. Everything operates with time. Nigeria is one hour ahead Ghana. It dosen’t make Ghanaians slower than Nigerians by any yardstick.
On God’s hand, time is a mercy tool. For God makes everything to the elect beautiful in His time.
Lord, grant me the capacity to wait when You wish and to move at Your command and pace.
BIBLE IN ONE YEAR:
2 Chronicles 7-9; Luke 6:1-26
