Devotion

“For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways,” declares the Lord.

Isaiah 55:8

The other day I came across construction blocking the right lane of traffic. All I wanted to do was turn right, yet I was stuck behind a half-mile of people going straight and left. I knew this construction wasn’t there last week. I whined about the timing. If only they would have started a week later, then I wouldn’t be stuck.

Life is all about timing isn’t it?

Sometimes when we pray we don’t get a clear answer. If that’s you right now, God might not be saying “No.” He might be saying instead, “Not at this time.”

We’ve all heard that God’s timing is not ours, but what does that mean? It means we can trust His perfect timing.

Who knows? There might be construction in your way and He might just be in the process of removing it from your path.

Dear Lord, help us to be flexible with our plans and desires so we can conform them to Yours. Help us to remove all the obstacles to our faith. Give us the strength to trust in Your perfect timing. In Jesus’ name, amen.
