In Due Time

In Due Time by Keith Cook

"Humble yourselves therefore under the mighty hand of God, that he may exalt you in due time: Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you." 1 Peter 5:6, 7

In this scripture passage, Peter says that now is not the time to run ahead of God, but to trust Him for in due time He will reward you with your desire to see His will done in your life.

Sometimes it is wrong to do something now.

A "NOW" reaction can result in the following three things:

N - A near sighted immediate response rather than a God directed power expression of faith.

O - The possibility of actually overlooking God's divine plan in a given situation.

W - The potential to wreck the future for all concerned.

Yet trusting Christ and letting the Holy Spirit guide you in due time can result in the following:

D - God will develop character in you as you wait on His will.

U - Waiting on God allows you to see Him unveil His plan not yours.

E - When God works every need is met. This is total provision.

T - Your testimony will be enhanced.

I - Personal interaction is required. You actually have to think, talk, pray, consult, include, and rely on God and others. It is actually communication to the max.

M - The mission of the Lord Jesus Christ is advanced.

E - Eternity is affected because you did it God's way, at God's time, and with God's results.

Wherever you are in your spiritual life, God wants you to wait on Him. There are times when God says GO for Him. But there are times when we cannot GO, we must WAIT for DUE TIME. Unless God has directed, commanded, or instructed us, we can not presume or assume to know His will and direction. This does not give us a license to not do what God instructs us to do as good and faithful servants, but it does require us to check in with Him for our every need and ministry.

Daily Prayer Focus: Pray that you will trust God and wait on His will in every area of your life this week.

On The Go Prayer Focus: On The Go's World Outreach Center (WOC). This is our main office and training facility. Pray for God to protect the building, guard the mechanical and structural aspects of the facility, and use the facility for maximum eternal benefits.
Praise God for Recent Renovation at the WOC just this past week!
