B Moment, perfect

God Will Deliver You at the Perfect Moment

This is our B moment. Our moment to be still…to be fed by the Word of God…to be grateful.

Scripture reference: Isaiah 60:22 (NLT)

Transcription:

Today, I am thinking about how God is creating the perfect moment to deliver things for you.

We recently talked about how trust far outweighs understanding. We discussed how as close as the disciples were to Jesus, they often didn’t understand him. Yet what they lacked in understanding, they compensated for with a willingness to trust in Jesus.

If I am to confess my weakness, I struggle with trusting God’s timing on things. As much as He has always delivered on time and has never been late, I still find myself fretting over His timing.

One passage that inspired me was a time when Jesus was in the temple, and the Jewish leaders attempted to arrest him but couldn’t. Think about this for a moment. The conditions were perfect for Jesus to be arrested, but the time itself wasn’t right.

Jesus was, in fact, in his season since shortly after that incident, he was arrested. Yet he had to be arrested at that precise moment that was created for him.

This precise timing inspires me because it reminds me that so much is going on behind the scenes. When it seems as though God isn’t answering, He is actually at work, creating the perfect moment to answer our prayers.

Join me today in thanking Him in advance for being at work, creating this perfect moment. As you do that, remember these words: “At the right time, I, the Lord, will make it happen.” Isaiah 60:22 (NLT)

Please share this reflection as others desire to be inspired.

So today, know that God is creating the perfect moment to deliver for you.

God’s Timing Is Precise

B Moments, precise

This is our B moment. Our moment to be still…to be fed by the Word of God…to be grateful.

Scripture reference: Isaiah 60:22 (NLT)

Today, I am thinking about the precision of God’s timing.

Just a few days ago, I had a talk with one of my girlfriends about how I felt like I was in my season. In other words, I felt like the stars were finally aligning for me.

Then, the door I believed would open next stayed firmly closed. I was completely thrown off and couldn’t believe that God didn’t guide me where I had previously expected.

However, I had to remind myself about the precision of God’s timing. Sometimes, we may be in the right season, but it still may not be the right time for something to materialize for us.

This incident reminded me of a time when Jesus was in the temple and the Jewish leaders attempted to arrest him, but couldn’t. Jesus was, in fact, in his season since shortly after that incident he was arrested. Yet, he had to be arrested at the precise moment that was created for him in order to maximize the impact.

This precision in timing inspires me because it reminds me that so much is going on behind the scenes. Although it feels as though God isn’t answering, He is actually creating the perfect moment to answer your prayers.

Join me today in being inspired that your next door will open, your prayer will be answered, your house will sell, your new relationship will come—but it will come at the precisely right moment. Let us cling to these words to remind us: “At the right time, I, the Lord, will make it happen.” Isaiah 60:22 (NLT)

Please share this reflection as others desire to be inspired.

So today, know that God’s timing is precise.

B Moments, precision

In God’s Precise Way, You Will Succeed

This is our B moment. Our moment to be still…to be fed by the Word of God…to be grateful.

Scripture reference: Isaiah 55:8-9 (ESV)

Today, I am thinking about the precision of God’s ways.

I talked recently about the precision of God’s timing, and I mentioned how we may sometimes find ourselves in a situation that seems so perfect that we can almost anticipate what will happen next. When that next event doesn’t come like we believed it would, we may sometimes get frustrated. However, it just comes down to the precision of the Lord’s timing.

Just as I’ve come to appreciate God’s exact timing of things, I have also begun to see the precision in God’s ways.

Recently, I reflected on the time Jesus was in the temple and the Jewish leaders failed to arrest him because, as the Scriptures teach us, the time was not right. If we take that a step further, we see that a simple arrest in the temple was not the way in which God ultimately wanted Jesus to be arrested.

When we look at how Jesus was actually arrested, we see that he was outdoors, in a grove of olive trees. He was then greeted by Roman soldiers with blazing torches and lanterns. Peter, an integral part of his inner circle, was with him as was his betrayer, Judas.

In this vivid picture, we see that although we sometimes try to figure out what door God is going to come through next, that is futile. We can’t pinpoint God’s ways, as precise as they are, because they are straight from heaven.

Let us be inspired by clinging to these words: “For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways…For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways.” Isaiah 55:8-9 (ESV)

Please share this reflection as others desire to be inspired.

So today, remember that God has a precise way of bringing your prayers to fruition.
