I am thankful for God’s Schedule, that He is in control.
Have you ever encountered a project whose deadline seemed impossible to meet, and you prayed and you worked - and lo and behold, the deadline comes and the project is complete? I call that God’s Schedule. I wonder sometimes if He doesn’t warp time in the same way that He multiplied the five loaves and two fish to feed the five thousand.
As the church secretary, I was so thankful today to be able to see God’s Schedule take place with a project that had to be completed for a Biblical counseling class presented tonight. It always seems easier to rest in the Lord when I know that circumstances are beyond my control. It wasn’t that I was slacking, I just hadn’t received the needed material to work with until - what seemed to me to be - too late.
Yet I knew that if God wanted the material to be presented, He would see it presented. So I didn’t stress about it... actually, I rather enjoyed the process, and laughed and joked with my colleagues. When I felt my heart beating faster, I would just turn back to Him and pray for strength and endurance to do what I could do, then rest again in His sovereign plan. Apparently, it was His desire to see all of the material presented - and that is just what He did through us.
God’s Schedule is truly wonderful to behold, and I am glad to be able to have faith in the God who can manipulate time and space according to His will. And that will is for His glory, and the good of those who love Him. This is His promise to His children, and never will He separate the two, no matter how bad it may seem.
