“…When shall I come and appear before God?” Psalms 42:2
God has given us dreams and promises, but He does not tell us exactly about the timing, so we often wonder when will the promises of God come to pass.When God’s timing is taking too long we are tempted to become frustrated, depressed, disappointed, and impatient.
David was wondering; when will his time come. He wanted an opportunity to ask God some questions about his life. David became downcast and depressed because he stopped hoping and trusting in the timing of God. He was leaning on his own understanding.
David said, “I trusted in, relied on, and was confident in You, O Lord; I said, You are my God. My times are in Your hands.” (Ps 31:14-15) David began to trust and rely on God, he realized that God is the owner our times and our seasons. David was no longer wondering “When? When? When?” because he placed his time in God’s hands.
Beloved, do not lean on your own understanding, but trust in the Lord; “when we humble ourselves under the mighty hand of God, in due time, He will exalt us.” (1Pet 5:6)
“Due time” is God’s time, it is when God is ready, not when we think we’re ready. The sooner we understand this,the quicker God can work His plan in our lives.
Beloved, instead of focusing on when will this? Or when will that? Let us trust God and His timing.
