Understanding Timing

Recently, I heard two messages back to back that were talking about making promises and not following through and how it affects the person that you made the promise to. I had to think for a minute about what I had done, because I knew it was not a coincidence that I heard these two  exact same messages from two different ministers.

As I thought about it, I suddenly understood what God was talking about. I had been saying I was going to move for the longest and had not done it. I didn’t realize how my promises may have affected people. But that does not give me an excuse. I changed my mind for a couple of reasons which I felt were legitimate, but honestly the bottom line it was just not time.

One thing that I am sure of, is that I needed to remain here until the end of my father’s life. He had no one to care for him and God gave me that assignment. And since he has been gone for eight months now, it still was not time I believe. God told me he would send me at the right time and I believe that time is now.

Yesterday, I wound up seeing something that in the past would have dettered my moving, but the difference is, my emotions and heart are very guarded and I know God is the one motivating me to make this change.

The only thing missing right now is provision and it may seem odd to some people, but I believe God is about to send the provision now. Had I gotten it before now, I would have used it for the wrong purpose. But now that I know, it will be different. But the bottom line is, it’s all about timing.

Psalm 102:13

New International Version (NIV)

13 You will arise and have compassion on Zion, for it is time to show favor to her; the appointed time has come.
