Daily Bible Verse:              Exodus 17:9

Moses said to Joshua, ‘Tomorrow I will stand on top of the hill with the staff (rod) of God in my hands.’

- Wherever we go and whatever we do, we must make sure that the Lord is with us.
- We must not do things in our own strength or in our own wisdom.
- The ‘rod of God’ was a symbol that the Lord was with them.
- Now, as you face the day, take hold of His hand, and He will give you the victory.

Prayer: Lord, thank You that You are with me. Even when I walk through the darkest valley, I will not be afraid, because You are close beside me. Your rod and Your staff protect and comfort me. Amen.

Timing Is Everything

March 8, 2019

TIMING IS EVERYTHING

Have you heard this phrase before? I have heard businessmen tell me how crucial timing is to the success of a deal or transaction. In our lives as Christians we also face the timing issue. We need to be sensitive to the time frame we find ourselves in. Timing can make the difference between success and failure. I remember my father telling me that there are times to ‘back off’ or ‘back down’. If we miss these time we can end up hurt and devastated, but if we can read these times we can step towards success and God’s plan for our lives.

UNDERSTANDING TIMING

This can be one of the most difficult and challenging tasks. I have seen people rush in to things long before the time is right. The result is usually devastating. It is difficult for us human beings who are caught up in time to understand timing. We are always in a hurry and want things to happen instantaneously. But there is a time for everything. This is something we need to understand and gain a grasp of so that we will not make mistakes.

THE HANDS OF THE CLOCK

Sometimes what we want to do is to push the hands of the clock up to the twelve o’ clock position. We want to get to our goal now. My mother was taking music lessons as a little girl. She was expected to practice each day for 30 minutes. She did not enjoy the practicing. There was a clock on the wall by which her parents would set the practice time. In her desperation she would sneak up to the clock, when no one was looking and push the minute hand forward so that she could end her practice early. Naturally her parents were not that stupid and the end result was usually discipline. Sometimes we live like this. We keep jumping up to push the hands of the clock on a little so that we can get on with what we think is good for us. Time is destined to move at a particular speed.
