God’s Timing is Everything



READ VERSES: ACTS 7: 23-39


23 “When Moses was forty years old, he decided to visit his own people, the Israelites. 24 He saw one of them being mistreated by an Egyptian, so he went to his defense and avenged him by killing the Egyptian. 25 Moses thought that his own people would realize that God was using him to rescue them, but they did not. 26 The next day Moses came upon two Israelites who were fighting. He tried to reconcile them by saying, ‘Men, you are brothers; why do you want to hurt each other?’


27 “But the man who was mistreating the other pushed Moses aside and said, ‘Who made you ruler and judge over us?m 28 Are you thinking of killing me as you killed the Egyptian yesterday?’ 29 When Moses heard this, he fled to Midian, where he settled as a foreigner and had two sons.


30 “After forty years had passed, an angel appeared to Moses in the flames of a burning bush in the desert near Mount Sinai. 31 When he saw this, he was amazed at the sight. As he went over to get a closer look, he heard the Lord say: 32 ‘I am the God of your fathers,p the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob.’f Moses trembled with fear and did not dare to look.


33 “Then the Lord said to him, ‘Take off your sandals, for the place where you are standing is holy ground. 34 I have indeed seen the oppression of my people in Egypt. I have heard their groaning and have come down to set them free. Now come, I will send you back to Egypt.’


35 “This is the same Moses they had rejected with the words, ‘Who made you ruler and judge?’t He was sent to be their ruler and deliverer by God himself, through the angel who appeared to him in the bush. 36 He led them out of Egyptu and performed wonders and signsv in Egypt, at the Red Seaw and for forty years in the wilderness.


37 “This is the Moses who told the Israelites, ‘God will raise up for you a prophet like me from your own people.’h y 38 He was in the assembly in the wilderness, with the angelz who spoke to him on Mount Sinai, and with our ancestors;a and he received living wordsb to pass on to us.


39 “But our ancestors refused to obey him. Instead, they rejected him and in their hearts turned back to Egypt.


+++++++++++ACTS 23:39 +++++++++++


God’s timing is everything. God's plan and power provide us with everything. Finding His timing for that plan and power is crucial. When Moses took it upon himself to redeem God's people, he failed. After being humbled in the wilderness, God called him back to deliver His people at the divine moment and in accordance to His plan. The results led to the Exodus — the redemption and rebirth of God's holy people.


PLEASE PRAY WITH ME: Dear Heavenly Father, I am often impatient and frustrated by having to wait. Forgive me, dear God, for trying to rush your timetable and for assuming my plan is your plan. Please give me wisdom to know what to do, where to go, and when to act. In Jesus' name, I pray for this patience and wisdom. AMEN.


GOD BLESS YOU.
