The importance of timing | Christian Connection Blog

Part of realizing God’s will is realizing His timing for occasions in our lives. There is a time for all the pieces and a season for each exercise below the heavens (Ecclesiastes three v 1). Verse 11 states, ‘He has made everything beautiful in its time.’ God operates exterior of time as we all know it, and He hardly does issues in response to our schedule. If we will grasp and settle for this final reality, I consider our stress and frustration ranges would drop considerably. He is aware of the most effective time for issues to occur in our lives and if we enable Him, He will make issues stunning.

Many Christians consider that being exterior of God’s timing is tantamount to being exterior of His will. And once you’re working exterior God’s will on your life, issues might not go easily for you. A basic Biblical instance is Abraham and Sarah. They had waited a fairly very long time to have a baby, and even after God had promised them a son, Sarah bought impatient. She gave her maidservant Hagar to Abraham and Hagar bore him a son. If you’re accustomed to the Bible, you’ll know the story. Otherwise, look it up in Genesis 16 and 21.

Abraham and Sarah tried to do issues their very own option to result in what God had promised, but it surely backfired. The scary factor is that God allowed it, although He knew what the end result could be. Sometimes God will enable us to go forward and make errors once we resolve that we wish to be within the driving seat. And similar to the choice Abraham and Sarah made led to important penalties for generations to come back, our selections to take our lives into our personal palms can have ramifications we by no means dreamed of.

So, earlier than you embark on a relationship or rush into marriage, ask your self if the timing is true. Are each of you prepared? Are you prepared mentally, spiritually, emotionally and financially? Have you taken the time to get to know one another? Or are you simply bowing to stress?

I heard a couple of younger Christian couple that bought married and fewer than a yr into the wedding, they have been having an argument and the younger man blurted out one thing alongside the traces of ‘you forced me into this, I wasn’t able to get married!’ This got here as a shock to the younger woman as a result of she thought marriage was what they each needed. I can solely think about that this younger man went together with it as a result of he thought that was what was anticipated of him. This is particularly true for Christian {couples} which have been relationship for a short time.

Sometimes well-meaning family and friends, and even church members unknowingly put stress on a pair by dropping hints and even outright asking a selected couple once they’re getting married. This isn’t very useful and we have to let individuals work out for themselves when to take their relationship to the following degree if that’s what they wish to do.

It is all the time good to know that your relationship is heading someplace however making an attempt to hurry issues is rarely a good suggestion. We must get the timing proper. Entering right into a relationship or marriage with the precise particular person on the fallacious time might be simply as unhealthy as coming into one with the fallacious particular person. Don’t give in to stress. Take the time to speak, pray and let God’s Holy Spirit information you into His excellent will on your life.
