God al­ways right on time

And the Lord vis­ited Sarah as He had said, and the Lord did unto Sarah as He had spo­ken. For Sarah con­ceived and bare Abra­ham a son in his old age, at the set time of which God had spo­ken to him. (Ge­n­e­sis Ch. 21 verses 1-2).

God did the im­pos­si­ble, He de­fied na­ture and bi­ol­ogy. He in­ter­vened in the bod­ies of Abra­ham and Sarah and per­formed a miracle. When it comes to liv­ing by faith, you can trust both God’s word and God’s power. In His per­fect tim­ing and supreme sovereignty, God brought about what He had promised “at the set time.” He made it hap­pen.

God’s tim­ing may not al­ways be per­fectly con­ve­nient for us, and some­times it does not make any sense, but it is al­ways “at the set time.” God is al­ways right on time be­cause with Him there are no de­lays, and there are no sur­prises. When God is in con­trol, and He is, events in our lives do not just hap­pen by ac­ci­dent or chance.

Abra­ham was pa­tient and be­lieved God: He stag­gered not at the prom­ise of God through un­be­lief, but was strong in faith, giv­ing glory to God; and be­ing fully per­suaded that, what He had promised, He was able also to per­form.

And there­fore it was im­puted to him for right­eous­ness (Ro­mans Ch. 4 verses 20-21). Faith is trust­ing God on His terms as well as His timetable, not our own.
