This is our B moment. Our moment to be still…to be fed by the Word of God…to be grateful.
Scripture reference: James 5:7 (ESV)
Today I want to encourage you if you’re asking yourself the question, when will it be my time?
Even if we don’t always verbalize this question, it rests on our hearts. When I turn to the Scriptures, I think about David’s life and all he had to endure between the time when he was anointed king and the time when he was appointed king.
There are times when we hit a certain milestone and believe we’ve turned a new corner that represents a new season in our lives, only to be confronted with more of the same. It is very likely that David felt this same way after he graduated from the shepherd’s field to defeating Goliath.
Soon after that victory, David had to deal with a jealous Saul, who kept him on the run in fear of his life for years. Once Saul was killed, David must have believed it was finally his time. But not so quick! He then had to deal with Saul’s sons who felt they were entitled to the throne. So David entered into a bloody battle with them for another seven years.
In the end, at God’s appointed time, David did take the throne. Yet more importantly, while He was waiting on God, he exercised patience and sought God’s will at every turn.
If you feel like you’re in an unjust situation and can’t wait for it to end, hold onto these few words: “Be patient, therefore, brothers, until the coming of the Lord.” James 5:7 (ESV)
