AT THE PROPER TIME
In Psalm 104, verse 24,”How countless are Your works, Lord! In wisdom You have made them all; the earth is full of your creatures”,
There is a question, ‘How many are your works Lord? In wisdom you made all earthly creatures beyond number and look to him to give them food,‘at the proper time’. He opens his hands to satisfy with good things and he sends his spirit to renew the earth and rejoices in his work. But note the implication of ‘in the proper time.’ God is aware of our limitations as a person and where we perhaps implore him to ‘fix’ our problems or answer our cries for our solutions, he may answer, ‘in the proper time’.
Yes, he provides for us but in order and appropriate timing, by his spirit and in wisdom. You may carry shadows on your heart but the shadow of the cross covers you with infinite love. If he can feed his earthly creatures with food, he will surely sustain us in our needs in order and his proper timing.
In Psalm 105 God reminds us that he remembers his covenant forever. The word he commanded for a thousand generations and that means us today but perhaps only ‘at the proper time.’ Daily, we must seek his strength in prayer and he will hear you. Just ask. Psalm 111v 9: “He has sent redemption to His people. He has ordained His covenant forever. His name is holy and awe-inspiring”.
He provided redemption for his people, he ordained his covenant forever-holy and awesome is his name.The steps of a good man/woman are ordered by the Lord.
