In this month's blog of encouragement I want to share some revelatory insight, practical steps and answer questions within this blog that you may have about this topic titled, "The Timing of the Lord."
As I write these monthly words of encouragement they are also coupled with the prophetic words that are being released from this ministry. I have felt this strongly for some time now and even more so coming into this month. That in this month of November, I really felt that we are moving more into the perfect timing of the Lord. That it will be so strategic, being at the right place at the right time and into His impeccable timing.
I want to share with you and touch on the topic of 'timing.' I think this topic can be a challenging one to talk about because I believe many us get so discourage at times because we don't understand the timing of the Lord. We want things to happen now or think it is going to happen now, or think we know when it is going to happen when in reality we are not even ready for it to happen.
The Lord has to thoroughly prepare you not only for His perfect timing but also for what you are going to step into especially concerning His promises and fulfillment in, "The Timing of the Lord."
Our timing is not the Lord's timing and it never will be. He has the most impeccable timing of things transpiring and coming together, it is a matter of waiting and trusting in Him and His timing. A lot of times we get sidetrack, distracted or impatient which causes delay. Ever heard that saying, 'going around the mountain' well that pretty much sums it up. You will wait longer than you should have waited and go around that mountain again. It reminds of the story of Abraham and Sarah. Sarah was impatient and came up with her own plan. She wanted a son and was tired of waiting and so she bore Ishmael, which was not the promise God had made to Abraham and Sarah. The promise of Isaac did come to pass just as the Lord said and it was on time and in His timing. Impatience causes delay. If, you are impatient then the Lord has to work in your heart still to prepare you. It is also a sign you are not in His timing yet.
It is imperative that we wait on the Lord and for His timing and not get frustrated, impatient, or discourage in the process of waiting.
Questions you may have pondered on about His timing:
Here are 5 practical steps to consider about His timing:
Some scriptures for you to mediate and renew your mind on:
Ecclesiastes 3:1 "Yet God has made everything beautiful for its own time. He has planted eternity in the human heart, but even so, people cannot see the whole scope of God’s work from beginning to end."
Acts 1:7 'He said to them: “It is not for you to know the times or dates the Father has set by his own authority.'
Habakkuk 2:3 'For the vision awaits an appointed time; it testifies of the end and does not lie. Though it lingers, wait for it, since it will surely come and will not delay.'
Prayer for you to pray, declare and decree:
Lord, thank you for bringing me into alignment with your perfect timing. If, I have been impatient, frustrated, or discouraged from waiting Lord I repent so that any door to the enemy that was opened because of that is now closed and that peace of God will invade and surround my atmosphere. Remove anything or anyone that would hinder or delay your timing. Do what you need to do in me to prepare and position me for your perfect timing. Prepare my heart, my mind and my emotions so that I don't go ahead of you Lord. But, that I will wait patiently, trusting you and walk in your perfect peace of knowing you have all things in your hands including your appointed times for my life. Let the alignment of Heaven come into my life, atmosphere, and all that surrounds me. Let every demonic assignment, assault, plot and scheme of the enemy sent to try and destroy, delay or hinder your timing be completely dismantled and broken. Send your angels to help bring me into what you have planned and orchestrated in this season and time in Jesus name, Amen!
Let this word bless, encourage, bring insight, activate and impart into you for the month we are in and how to move forward into His impeccable timing!
Grace and Love to you all!
