“When the set time had fully come, God sent his Son, born of a woman, born under the law, to redeem those under the law, that we might receive adoption to sonship.” Galatians 4:4

Dear Heavenly Father, I have spent my entire life wishing things would happen either sooner or later than they did. I always want Christmas to hurry up and get here. I couldn’t seem to wait to get my driver’s license either. On the other hand, I never wanted our vacation to end and always hoped the holidays gatherings could go on for days. With the strong desire you had to redeem mankind and restore our love for you, it must have been hard to wait centuries for your Son to do his magic in saving us. You wait with your creatures don’t you. But when you wait there is no impatience, no groaning, no disappointment or angst. You wait with understanding that you have just the right time for everything. Because you do, I wait with you in faith filled peace. Your time is the right time all the time. You work your timing into my life and I will work my obedience from a trusting heart, with your help of course.

God’s timing is the right time all the time.
