Word of the Day... March 23, 2014....

At the Right TimeWhen the right time came, God sent his Son, born of a woman, subject to the law.  —Galatians 4:4

By nature, I tend to be an impatient person. I'm one of those guys who, when the pizza comes, doesn't wait for it to cool off. I start eating it immediately. Of course, I have burned the entire roof of my mouth that way. But I just can't wait.

In this day and age when everything moves so fast, we don't need to wait for much of anything anymore. How did we ever make it without microwave ovens? Yet even these seem slow to me now. At the grocery store, even if it's necessary for me to leave a few things behind, I will try to get in the ten-items-or-less line. When I'm on the freeway, if one lane starts to move, even if it's just slightly faster than my lane, I will move to the faster one. I don't like to wait.

Yet the Lord tells us to be patient for His return. As we look at this world in which we live and the way our culture is changing, we may think, Lord, come on! Return! Look at the way things are going! But God has His own schedule. He won't be late. He won't be early. He will be right on time.

When He came the first time, it was according to His perfect plan. Galatians tells us, "But when the right time came, God sent his Son" (Galatians 4:4, NLT). I love that phrase: when the right time came. At the appointed hour, Jesus Christ, the Son of God, fulfilled the Old Testament prophecies and was born in a manger in Bethlehem. And when the time is just right, Jesus Christ, the Son of God, will return. 

I am so excited when I read this devotional today by Pastor Greg.  There are no more prophecies that need to be fulfilled in order for the Rapture to happen and for Jesus to call us home!!!  His timing is always perfect  and we need to be about our Father’s business until He comes for us.  I hope that you have a Simply Heavenly day!!!  God bless you!!!
