Today’s Topic: The Right Time
Scripture: This is what the Lord says: “At just the right time, I will respond to you.” – Isaiah 49:8, NLT
Recommended Reading: Psalm 27:11-14
11 Teach me thy way, O Lord, and lead me in a plain path, because of mine enemies.
12 Deliver me not over unto the will of mine enemies: for false witnesses are risen up against me, and such as breathe out cruelty.
13 I had fainted, unless I had believed to see the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living.
14 Wait on the Lord: be of good courage, and he shall strengthen thine heart: wait, I say, on the Lord.
DAVID JEREMIAH’S TURNING POINT 10 AUGUST 2023
The Jewish people waited a long time for their Messiah, but “when the right time came, God sent his Son, born of a woman” (Galatians 4:4, NLT). The world, too, waited a long time for a Redeemer, but “at just the right time, when we were still powerless, Christ died for the ungodly” (Romans 5:6, NIV).
Sometimes our prayers aren’t answered in our timing, but we must continue to focus on God. He will deliver us in His timing and in His way. Isaiah 60:22 says, “At the right time, I, the Lord, will make it happen” (NLT). And Galatians 6:9 says, “So let’s not get tired of doing what is good. At just the right time we will reap a harvest of blessing if we don’t give up” (NLT).
Waiting on the Lord isn’t easy, but think of Abraham waiting for a son, Joseph waiting for freedom, Paul waiting in prison, and Jesus waiting for His hour to come. Trust the Lord to respond to your need—at just the right time.
Timing is everything. When we talk about waiting, we’re implying waiting for the right time. Sometimes God waits to answer your prayers, because now is not the right time.
