“Is anything too hard for the Lord? At the appointed time I will return to you, according to the time of life, and Sarah shall have a son.”
Have you ever noticed these highlighted words before? Me, either!” ‘At the appointed time’…God has a plan, not only on the universal scale, but also on a personal level, for His children. Nothing is by happenstance – God has a plan and that plan WILL unfold at the appointed time.
Has the Father spoken to you? Has He filled your heart with a dream? You can be sure that at the appointed time, He will fulfill His promises. Day by day, step by step, prayer by prayer. Trust Him. Love Him. And expect the Hand of God to work on your behalf.
Lord, it is very hard to wait on dreams – to wait for the answer to our prayer. Yet, it is so comforting to me to know that even the very people we look up to in the Bible had to learn to wait. Waiting doesn’t mean that the answer is no. Quite often, waiting means that there is an appointed time for the answer to come, for the dream to be fulfilled. After all, Lord, You are sovereign and You hold us in the palm of Your hand. And for that, I am very thankful.
