Gods timing…the following quote by an unknown person reminded me of the verse in Habakkuk about the perfection of Gods timing and that he is indeed never early and never late but always on time! PTL the master in control of our lives is our Awesome LORD!
God has perfect timing; never early, never late. It takes a little patience and it takes a lot of faith. but it’s worth the wait. ♥
For the vision is yet for an appointed time and it hastens to the end [fulfillment]; it will not deceive or disappoint. Though it tarry, wait [earnestly] for it, because it will surely come; it will not be behindhand on its appointed day. Habakkuk 2: 3
He so wonderfully reminded me of this yesterday (January 22nd). I had a yearly form that needed to be completed and filed online. I never received anything in the mail stating the exact due date for this years filing. Due to all going on in our lives lately I totally forgot about needing to file this month…but the LORD knows all things and he knew the due date. Yesterday morning as I woke up at 4:30am a still small voice said to me “You need to take care of filing this item today.” I went online and took care of filing the form and the copy I printed out said “Due Date: January 22nd” PTL I serve an Awesome LORD who is in control of everything and is never early and never late but always “on time”!
This also reminds me of a verse in Proverbs…
In all your ways know, recognize, and acknowledge Him, and He will direct and make straight and plain your paths. Proverbs 3:6
1. I will praise the Lord at all times. I will constantly speak his praises.
2. I will boast only in the Lord; let all who are helpless take heart.
3. Come, let us tell of the Lord’s greatness; let us exalt his name together.
4. I prayed to the Lord, and he answered me. He freed me from all my fears.
5. Those who look to him for help will be radiant with joy; no shadow of shame will darken their faces.
6. In my desperation I prayed, and the Lord listened; he saved me from all my troubles.
7. For the angel of the Lord is a guard; he surrounds and defends all who fear him.
8. Taste and see that the Lord is good. Oh, the joys of those who take refuge in him!
The Divine life within us comes from God, and is entirely dependent upon Him. As I need every moment afresh the air to breathe, as the sun every moment afresh sends down its light, so it is only in direct living communication with God that my soul can be strong.
The manna of one day was corrupt when the next day came. I must every day have fresh grace from heaven, and I obtain it only in direct waiting upon God Himself. Begin each day by tarrying before God, and letting Him touch you. Take time to meet God.

So many things in our lives change through the years!!! Our cars, homes, jobs, health, etc. So is there anything you can count on as never changing???
Yes there is…HIS name is JESUS!!!
Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever. (Hebrews 13:8 ESV)
“Pray without ceasing.”
1 Thessalonians 5:17 (KJV)
Prayer is not something you should do only if you or someone else has a special need. The LORD is with us at all times and we can commune with HIM at any time of the day or night. As we go about our daily schedules we can be in constant awareness of his presence and we can talk to HIM about anything that comes up. Yes there are times to be on your knees in your prayer closet but you don’t have to be in that position to commune with the LORD.
Isn’t it awesome l that we can call on HIM from anywhere at anytime of the day or night and HE is there for us at that moment?
That’s what I call a 24/7 support line and we’ll never get a busy signal or be disconnected!
(commune – to be in a state of intimate, heightened sensitivity and receptivity)
“This is the day the LORD has made;
let us rejoice and be glad in it.”
Psalm 118:24 (KJV)
Why do so many of us just “WISH” our lives away. It’s Monday and we wish it was Wednesday or even Friday. Our lives pass by so quickly as it is. I look back over the years and don’t know where they went. How did I get to where I am today? My children are grown adults with children of their own. Let us make it a point not to “WISH” our lives away.
Let us enjoy each day that the LORD has given us to the fullest!
