“He has made everything beautiful in its time.” Ecclesiastes 3:11 NIV
God has a perfect timing for the fulfillment of His purposes in our lives.
His promises concerning His intentions for us are like seeds sown into the soil of our hearts. They have a germination time which must fully unfold before coming to fruition – “first the stalk, then the head, then the full kernel in the head” (Mark 4:28).
This is why the Bible, in referring to the timing of the fulfillment of a promise of God, describes it as coming in the “fullness of time.” Waiting of course, requires faith and patience. But, as with all creative processes, the beauty of the finished work makes it all worthwhile in the end.
“In His time, in His time
He makes all things beautiful
In His time.
Lord please show me everyday
As you’re teaching me your way
That you do just what you say
In your time.”
