We’re too impatience. Our culture has raised us to expect what we want when we want it at the time we want it.
But God doesn’t work that way. His timing is not our timing. Events are planned around things that will give us the greatest graces and spiritual growth. It isn’t always pleasant. And it isn’t always what we expected. But it will always be just.
Just remember. God’s timing is always perfect. It is always on time. He is never late with anything. Even if it looks like the entire universe is devolving around us, He will provide us with everything we need.
Including patience. And strength to endure.
So when it looks like what you are anxiously awaiting for will never come, God will never forsake you. He hasn’t forgotten about your needs and desires.
But He puts all things in perspective; His perspective. It always encompasses more than just your life. It looks at everything and how you fit into the entire picture.
Someone may have to leave a job before you get the one you want. A person may have to lose or sell the house you need. You may be hungry and not know where your next meal is coming from, but another person may wonder who to give their extras to and is looking for you.
God operates on a time clock that supersedes our own. Everything in the universe operates within its framework.
Next time you have a need or desire, pray. God will always answer you…even if the answer is, “No” or “Not yet”. Trust He knows what is best. And he will come through.
Even if it’s the 11th hour, 59th minute, 59th second for you. He will never fail you if you trust.
In the words of St. Padre Pio, “Pray, hope, and don’t worry.” Ask, do what you can, and don’t push the outcome. If the door is closed and the window is still shut, wait. It will open in due time. It always does.
