How many times have you heard that God is never late? Often the theory continues that He is never early, either. Of course this begs the question about to whose time we’re referring. In the Old Testament, we read in the book of Psalms, chapter 90 and verse 4: “For a thousand years in thy sight are but as yesterday when it is past, and as a watch in the night.” And in the New Testament, II Peter Chapter 3:8 “But, beloved, be not ignorant of this one thing, that one day is with the Lord as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day.”
Yesterday at writer’s club one of my fellow author’s brought up the scripture from Galatians 4:4 “But when the fullness of the time was come, God sent forth his Son, made of a woman, made under the law..”
When the fullness of time was come. . . Think about that for a minute.
Are you still waiting for that special man? Are you still trying to go to college? Are you still hoping to buy a newer, more reliable car? Are you still waiting on that good job? Are you wondering what you’re going to do once you have your degree?
Have you talked to the Father? Have you trusted the Father? Have you put your faith up front or have you placed your wants, wishes and desires in first place?
Many times, in passing, I ask my Father what to write about, and He is often silent. This afternoon I sat down at my keyboard with what I thought were two good ideas for devotions. I wrote one, then the other, but they didn’t seem quite right.
Then, I remembered what my friend Ron had quoted to me yesterday from Galatians 4:4 – “…in the fullness of time.” I took that to mean that while these were acceptable writings, it was not yet time for either one.
I stopped immediately and asked God what to write. He has such a sense of humor and replied in my spirit, “Write on the fullness of time.”
So I ask you, is it time-o’clock or is it Heaven o’clock?
