Hey PWEN people!
How many of you are waiting for God to perform a miracle in your life? How many of you are needing God to provide a solution to a problem you’re dealing with right now? How many of you are hoping that God will make manifest His timely wisdom? As for me, I hoped for and believed in all three!
This blog post I’m writing right now is a miracle, the solution to a problem I was dealing with, and the manifestation of God’s timely wisdom. In my “Views Don’t Determine Value” post, I made you all aware that writing is not what I always felt empowered to pursue. It was a gift given to me by the Holy Spirit when I began walking in my purpose in Christ Jesus. That being said, the Holy Spirit chooses my words as well as my writing topics.
Normally when I’m writing a blog post I’ll get inspired about a week or so before it’s due to be posted, do my edits quickly, and then I’m good to go. This time was very different. I had no topic and no clear inspiration until 4am this morning on the day that my post is due! And it was at that time in the morning that I heard the Holy Spirit say “I want you to talk to them about timely wisdom. I want you to talk to them about the importance of waiting on Me to move before they do.”
Why is it so important for you to wait on God’s timely wisdom before acting? Because as Isaiah 55:9 NLT reminds us, “For just as the heavens are higher than the earth, so My ways are higher than your ways and My thoughts higher than your thoughts.”
God’s thought process and strategies of life are on a completely different level than our own. We may not always understand why He does things a specific way or why our wait has to be a certain length of time, but what we do know is that we never wait in vain. What we do know is that God is always faithful to His promises.
I had to wait almost two weeks for inspiration on this post, when it would normally take one week to receive my next writing assignment. Though writing at 4am on the due date for an 8am deadline would not be my ideal choice, it was God’s choice. This perceived setback, allowed me to talk about His timely wisdom from a place of immediate understanding. What was late for me, was the perfect time for Him AND I still finished writing my post before the deadline.
I want to encourage anyone who is panicking as you wait for God to show up for you. Fear not! He is coming! God’s ways are higher than ours and He shows up differently than we expect Him to, but we can always count on Him to be on time.
Til’ next time, adieu.
