Sisters, I’ve been thinking about “timing” for a while now.  I met a guy a few years ago that I fell in love with, but the timing just was never right for us, so we never got together.  I still love this person too, but I realize that some relationships or situations are not meant to be.  I like to believe that everything happens in God’s timing and not one minute before.  In the bible, scripture tells us that “there is an appointed time for everything.  And there is a time for every event under heaven” (Eccl. 3:1).

Pastor Charles Stanley explains it this way, in His wisdom and sovereignty, God sets an appropriate time for everything.  For instance, at the right time, Christ was born; at the right time, He lifts us up and that we shouldn’t run ahead of God’s timing! His blessings are always worth the wait (p. 759).

Saints! I want you to understand that nothing happens by accident and that God is in control of all things, even that great love that never happened for me. More importantly, if we wait on the Lord we will surely be blessed with what He wants us to have, because God wants the best for us.

Sister to Sister do you hear me? Do you know that timing is everything and that you will not miss what God has intended for you?
