Some people are really good at telling jokes – so good that you don’t catch on that it’s a joke until the punch line. My dad is one of those people. He has a joke for every situation and he never misses an opportunity to tell one. So much so, that our family sits around quoting lines from his jokes just for fun. In fact we had a LONG thread on FaceBook with the punch lines from the jokes we’ve heard him tell for years – it was fun when our family friends jumped in and added lines from my dad’s jokes they remembered.
If you ask my dad why his jokes are a hit, he’ll tell you, “It’s all about the timing.” And he’s right! Timing is what makes a joke funny. You’ve heard someone say, “Tell the joke about the…….” Those jokes never go over as well as when you throw the joke out there without warning – at the right time.
No one knows timing like God does! It’s all about the right – no, it’s all about PERFECT TIMING to Him.
Romans 5:6 says, “When we were utterly helpless, Christ came at just the right time and died for us sinners.”
Ecclesiastes chapter 3 talks about time and purpose.
For everything there is a season,
a time for every activity under heaven.
A time to be born and a time to die.
A time to plant and a time to harvest.
A time to kill and a time to heal.
A time to tear down and a time to build up.
A time to cry and a time to laugh.
A time to grieve and a time to dance.
A time to scatter stones and a time to gather stones.
A time to embrace and a time to turn away.
A time to search and a time to quit searching.
A time to keep and a time to throw away.
A time to tear and a time to mend.
A time to be quiet and a time to speak.
A time to love and a time to hate.
A time for war and a time for peace.
Everything that happens in this world happens at the time God chooses.
God HAS a PURPOSE and a PLAN for EVERYONE of us and to GOD, IT’S ALL ABOUT THE TIMING!!
WE MUST TRUST HIS TIMING!!
• When we trust God we learn that timing is important
• When we trust God’s timing we ACCEPT HIS PLAN
• When we trust God’s timing we cease striving- we REST
• When we trust God’s timing we WALK IN PEACE with Him
Put your trust in Him today!! Rest in the truth that;
“ He has made everything beautiful in its time.” (Ecclesiastes 3:11).
Don’t give up – It’s All About The Timing and His timing is perfect!!!
I am praying for you together we can walk through this and learn even more the beauty of trusting His timing!!
