timingI don’t think there’s too many of us who don’t get frustrated with God’s timing (see reblogged post below). It is never, or at least rarely ever, when we want things to get done or open up or change. That’s because He knows better than we do. Still, of all the virtues I personally struggle with, patience is the hardest. Three years of unemployment with still no end in sight seems like an eternity from my human perspective–but it’s really just a “blink of an eye.” So I will continue to lay down my own struggle with patience (on a daily basis), and ask God to give me His perspective on this life. How about you?

Are you struggling with patience and want God to move in your circumstances? Lay down your will and and your timing, and leave it with Him. After all, as Hebrews 11:1 states, “Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.” Also, as Hebrews 11:6 states, “But without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him.”

James 1:2-4 states, “My brethren, count it all joy when you fall into various trials, knowing that the testing of your faith produces patience. But let patience have its perfect work, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking nothing.” It is the testing of our faith in the trials of life that produces patience. And only God knows what is best for us, and He always knows the best timing. ~Sara’s Musings @ WordPress.com

Even though we trust in God, our actions say otherwise when we grow fearful that life may not turn out the way we hoped it would. When we devote our lives to God, we quickly learn this truth: Our plans and timing do not always line up with God’s. Yet it is with much frustration that we struggle to understand that His way, His plans, and His timing are better than ours.

Some of our greatest mistakes are made when we run ahead of God’s plan. We not only undermine our faith in Him, but we also challenge the notion that He indeed does know best. It is an arrogance that assumes we know better than God.

However, we cannot live fearlessly under such…
