There is a saying that goes something like this: “Faith in God also requires faith in His timing.” In some respects, faith in the Lord is the easy part – it’s often waiting on His timing that can be so challenging!
That’s why I love this verse – it reminds me that God is always at work in the background (and often in the foreground, too). In fact, at precisely the right moment, He will intervene in our circumstances in such a miraculous way that only He can get the credit (I have seen this happen!). Mind you, His interventions aren’t always in the major areas of our lives; rather, sometimes God makes big changes in small areas so that we can continue to grow and mature in our character, and in our total reliance upon Him, too.
Waiting for the “proper time” is rarely easy, admittedly. However, it’s always worth it!
