This is your B moment. Your moment to be still…to be fed by the Word of God…to be grateful.
Scripture reference: Micah 7:7 (NIV)
Today we’re continuing our series on God’s timing, and we’re talking about those occasions when things seem to get down to the wire.
Personally, if there’s one situation that can rattle me it is when a situation get down to the wire. Yet over the years, I’ve learned to remind myself of two things.
One: I serve a promise-keeping God; and two: God can do His best work when things get down to the wire. That’s likely because I am no longer trying to, as the saying goes, fix, manage, and control things, but I have come to a place of surrender.
When I turn to the Scriptures, David’s life is a good example of things getting down to the wire. God made two promises to David; first, that he would be elevated to the throne, and second, that he would have an everlasting family line.
Regarding the first promise, we know that David was named king, but he wasn’t crowned king until more than a decade later. It was during these intervening years that he might have thought that God had rescinded His promise or changed His mind. Yet God kept His word, and David was ultimately crowned king.
Regarding the second promise, God promised David that he would have an everlasting family line. Yet on more than one occasion, David’s family dwindled. It got down to the wire with just one or two family members. Yet in the end, David had an everlasting family line.
If things have come down to the wire for you, remember these words: “But as for me, I watch in hope for the Lord…my God will hear me.” Micah 7:7 (NIV)
So today, you serve a promise-keeping God.
