God’s Perfect Timing
2 Peter 3:8 “But, beloved, do not forget this one thing, that with the Lord one day is as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day.” [NKJV]
God’s timing is always perfect, He is never too early, and He is never too late.
Approximately 8 months ago, I received words of encouragement from an individual that works in the medical field. Those words inspired me to make some much-needed changes in my lifestyle. These changes that I made, based on the words of encouragement I received, helped me with turning around a diagnosis I received from my doctor.
To show my appreciation to this individual, who gave me the words encouragement, I gave them a daily devotional and a thank you card. Inside the card I wrote “thank you for your words of encouragement, they were greatly appreciated.”
Upon receiving the devotional and reading what I had written inside the thank you card, this individual responded to me saying “you don’t know how much this means to me. I have been going thru some difficult times lately and what you just gave me is what I needed right now “it is right on time.”
When we allow God to lead us with what we say or do, not only will it always be “right on time”, but it will also be a blessing to others.
I encourage those of you who might doubt the timing of God to read the scriptures listed below, and by faith believe that “God’s timing is always perfect.”

And He shall direct your paths.” [NKJV]

Ecclesiastes 3:11 “He has made everything beautiful in its time. Also He has put eternity in their hearts, except that no one can find out the work that God does from beginning to end.” [NKJV]
Father in heaven, thank you for your timing that is always perfect, in Jesus’ name…Amen
Continuing in His service…Rev
