“When the right time arrived, God sent His Son into this world (born of a woman, subject to the law) to free those who, just like Him, were subject to the law. Ultimately He wanted us all to be adopted as sons and daughters” (Galatians 4:4-5, The Voice).
More than any other time or season, the Advent season reminds me that God’s timing is perfect.
Jesus came into the world at just the right time, not to condemn the world but to save it and redeem it.
That’s the hope for all of us out there who are still waiting on God’s promises and holding on in faith to what we do not yet see. God’s timing is perfect.
“Strength of my heart, I need not fail,
Not mind to fear but to obey,
With such a Leader, who could quail?
Thou art as Thou wert yesterday.
Strength of my heart, I rest in Thee,
Fulfil Thy purposes through me” (Amy Carmichael).
