God’s timing is always perfect. Scripture has shown us that time and time again.
Abraham and Sarah had to wait many years for the fulfillment of God’s promise, a son. Abraham was a 100 years old and Sarah 90 at the birth of their son, Isaac. Can’t you just imagine the intense joy at the birth of this child?
“NOW FAITH is the assurance (the confirmation, the title deed) of things (we) hope for, being the proof of things (we) do not see and the conviction of their reality (faith perceiving as real fact what is not revealed to the senses).” (Hebrews 11:1, AMP)
Love Heart, God has a plan for your life. Continue to seek His guidance and wait for His timing and you too will experience intense joy! ~ Debra
“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” (Jeremiah 29:11,NIV)
In the sixth month of Elizabeth’s pregnancy, God sent the angel Gabriel to Nazareth, a town in Galilee, 27 to a virgin pledged to be married to a man named Joseph, a descendant of David. The virgin’s name was Mary. 28 The angel went to her and said, “Greetings, you who are highly favored! The Lord is with you.”
29 Mary was greatly troubled at his words and wondered what kind of greeting this might be. 30 But the angel said to her, “Do not be afraid, Mary; you have found favor with God. 31 You will conceive and give birth to a son, and you are to call him Jesus. 32 He will be great and will be called the Son of the Most High. The Lord God will give him the throne of his father David, 33 and he will reign over Jacob’s descendants forever; his kingdom will never end.”
34 “How will this be,” Mary asked the angel, “since I am a virgin?” (Luke 1: 26-37, NIV)
Can you imagine how frighten Mary must of been?
It was suppose to be a time of celebration! She was to be married to Joseph but now finds herself in an unusual situation. One that could possibly cost her the trust and love of her intended, plus her very life.
Mary chooses to trust God! “I am the Lord’s servant,” Mary answered. “May your word to me be fulfilled.” Then the angel left her. (Luke 1:38, NIV)
You may be facing a difficult decision …seek Him! ~Debra
