God’s perfect timing does two things: It grows our faith as we are forced to wait and trust in God and it makes certain that He, and He alone, gets the glory and praise for pulling us through. “My times are in Your hands...” Psalm 31:15.

What does God’s timing mean?
Don’t let this simple phrase fool you. God’s timing doesn’t mean that your timing is worthless, nor does it mean there’s no reason to respect our time and schedule. It simply means that God knows all and things occur in His perfect time, not ours. We still need to work hard and focus on improving our faith!
Why is it important to wait for God’s timing?
We can find peace in the pauses of God’s plan, knowing that if he is waiting to fulfill the promise his mercy is present in our lives as he waits for our maturity, all for our salvation. God’s plans are perfectly aligned with the timing that only he sees. God knows the beginning, the end, and everything in between.
What happens when we don’t wait on God?
The moral of the story is, when you don’t wait on the Lord, you end up with consequences that hurt or nag you in the end. The Lord knows what’s best for us and that’s why he wants us to wait for his appointed time to make things happen.
Why is God making me wait so long?
Perhaps you’re waiting because God wants to show you how the Kingdom works. The gift God wants to give you is too good to be made in a microwave. God wants us to press into his presence and wait patiently before his throne. He’s calling us to come before him with thanksgiving even if we’re still waiting on a promise.
What should we do while waiting for God?
Instead of running, try fellowship and prayer with God. Worship Him despite your circumstances. Believe God is good despite what you see. Choose to run to God no matter what is happening or how long it takes Him to answer.
How long should we wait on God?
How Long Do I Wait On God? Wait as long as it takes. God is going to do what He wants to do, no matter what. In Isaiah 46:10 God says: “I make known the end from the beginning, from ancient times, what is still to come.
When the time is right in the Bible?
Isaiah 60:22 – “When the time is right, I, the Lord, will make it happen.”
What is the biblical meaning of set time?
ACCORDING to Psalm 102:13, there is a set time for the favour of God to manifest in your life. Time is generally defined in the Greek as “chronos” and “kairos”. “Kairos” generally denotes God’s divine intervention in your life to accelerate or bring to pass some occurrence or event on your behalf.
What is God’s time compared to ours?
On this view, God’s time does not map onto our time at all. His time is completely distinct from ours. Another view is that God is “omnitemporal.” It is true on this view as well that God is not in our time, but he experiences temporal succession in his being. Our time is constituted by physical time.
How does God help us in difficult times?
Having faith in difficult times can allow you to find peace in God’s presence. When you are unfaithful, it can harden your heart with pride and cause you to grow distant in your relationship with Him. Learning to give up all your struggles and problems to God can lift a heavy burden off yourself.
Where in the Bible does it talk about waiting on the Lord?
