Original post May 27, 2018. Instant gratification has certainly taken a backseat the past couple of months. Makes me kind of wonder what this particular appointed time is all about. I guess I’ll have to be patient and wait on God.
Psalms 27:14 – Wait for the LORD; be strong and take heart and wait for the LORD. (NIV 1984)
My Musings – Nowadays we’ve become much too accustomed to instant gratification, and waiting can be frustrating. It used to be that we had to wait for the picture tube to warm up before we could watch our favorite show. If we missed it, we had to wait for the summer re-runs. But it seems the faster things get, the more annoyed we become with even the slightest delay. It’s been said of God that He is seldom early, but He is never late. He does not wear a Rolex or a Timex. God measures time by its “fullness” – the right or appointed time.
My Advice – Wait for the appointed time. There is a reason it has been appointed. Be patient and wait on God.
