Galatians 4:4a But when the fullness of time was come, God sent His Son

Ecclesiastes 3:1a To everything there is a season, and a time

When I was younger we would sing this song, “You can’t hurry God, Oh no you just have to wait. You have to trust Him and give Him time child, no matter how long it takes. You know he is a God you can’t hurry. He will be there, so don’t worry. He may not come when you want Him, but He is right on time.”

We are an impatient society and most of us do not enjoy waiting. We like things to come quickly. Instant foods have had a great success because it satisfies the needs of the masses for things done quickly. When we have to wait in line a long time before we are served we become annoyed, and many of us will hang up the phone if we are placed on hold for too long.

However, if you examine the nature of God you see that He believes in and operates in time. From the beginning He took time in creating the world (Genesis 1). When He decided to destroy His creations due to their wickedness it took Noah approximately 100 years to build the ark and then the rain came (Genesis 6 – 7). He promised Abram a seed when he was 75 years old but it took him 25 years before his son was born (Genesis 21). Joseph was given a dream when he was a teenager about rulership that did not come to pass until he was 30 years old (Genesis 37 & 41). The children of Israel was in bondage in Egypt for 430 years before God sent them a deliverer (Exodus 12:41). In Genesis 3 God told the serpent a savior would come to earth however it took 42 generations before Christ was born (Matthew 1) and finally it has been over 1000 years that believers have awaited the return of Christ for His bride.

Ecclesiastes 3 reveals that there are seasons and time in the life of man and Galatians 4 reveals that God has an appointed, proper, right, or set time for events to happen. Though we humans want things quick and in a hurry God requires us to have patience, trust and endurance as we wait on Him to bring things to pass in our lives. He also allows us time to get things right. So, use your time wisely because once it passes it cannot be recaptured.
