“Have patience! I am about to send you forth, but you must not run ahead of Me in your enthusiasm. There is no need to hurry. Nothing will work for you until My presence is with you, so why would you move before I am ready to go with you and anoint what you do?
"My timing is perfect. My appointments are easy. While you are waiting for My next provision or My next place for you to go, come and be with Me. I love Our time together. Being together is far more important than anything else that you do. It is why I have called you to Me. Be at peace, everything will get done, everything will work out for good. You come to Me. I am waiting!”
Exodus 33:13-16 NIV
13) “If I have found favor in your eyes, teach me your ways so I may know you and continue to find favor with you. Remember that this nation is your people.”
14) The Lord replied, “My Presence will go with you, and I will give you rest.”
15) Then Moses said to him, “If your Presence does not go with us, do not send us up from here.
16) How will anyone know that you are pleased with me and with your people unless you go with us? What else will distinguish me and your people from all the other people on the face of the earth?”
Deut. 1:6 NIV
The Lord our God said to us at Horeb, “You have stayed long enough at this mountain.”
John 7:6-8 NIV
6) Therefore Jesus told them, “The right time for me has not yet come; for you any time is right.
7) The world cannot hate you, but it hates me because I testify that what it does is evil.
8) You go to the Feast. I am not yet going up to this Feast, because for me the right time has not yet come.”
The completion of the galaxies was perfect. The parting of the Red Sea was perfect. The arrival of Jesus, His crucifixion, and His resurrection were perfect. Everything that God does is perfect - perfect in timing and perfect in completion.
As we study the life of Jesus, it rings in perfect unison with His Father. He did what He had been told to do at the proper time, which resulted in a perfect conclusion.
Does it seem a little foolish to you to think that we could run ahead of God, function in our own timing, and then believe that we might accomplish something for Him? Does it make any sense for us to worry or be impatient while we wait for Him? Wouldn’t it make more sense to let Him be God and not do His planning for Him? DUH!
Teach me to wait patiently, Lord,
