“To say that God’s timing is not our timing generally indicates we do not believe that God is moving as fast as we would like. Is it possible—just possible—that we could be the ones who are ahead of God, running faster than natural events? We are tempered like eager puppies on a walk, pulling too hard on the leash and needing to be restrained by our master’s pace.”
But what happens when God’s timing is ahead of our timing?
Isaiah 55:8-9 tells us that the Lord has a perspective and a way of working that we may not understand.
For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, declares the Lord. As the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts.
Revelation 3:8 gives us insight into the opportunities God presents to us.
See, I have placed before you an open door that no one can shut.
