First, if you are like me, there have been times when you asked or prayed for something to happen but it didn’t happen right away.
Of course, in those times the question was, “Why is it taking so long,” or “Is it even going to happen?” Nonetheless, there was clearly a delay.
So, let’s look at the definition of delay. It means to put off to a later time; to defer; to postpone. Now, a divine delay, on the other hand, is when God intervenes on a person’s behalf.
Trusting God’s timing
In fact, throughout the Holy Bible God is very specific about timing. More specifically, we can see some of the many examples of His timing in Ecclesiastes 3:1-8 Amplified Bible (AMP):
1 There is a season (a time appointed) for everything and a time for every delight and event or purpose under heaven—
2 A time to be born and a time to die; A time to plant and a time to uproot what is planted.
3 A time to kill and a time to heal; A time to tear down and a time to build up.
4 A time to weep and a time to laugh; A time to mourn and a time to dance.
5 A time to throw away stones and a time to gather stones; A time to embrace and a time to refrain from embracing.
6 A time to search and a time to give up as lost; A time to keep and a time to throw away.
7 A time to tear apart and a time to sew together; A time to keep silent and a time to speak.
8 A time to love and a time to hate; A time for war and a time for peace.
You see, with God, it is always about His timing.
Lastly, do you find yourself wondering why certain things in your life haven’t happened yet? Then this podcast episode will definitely offer some perspective.
