You do not know what will happen tomorrow. James 4:14
Talk about bad timing! On September 16, 2008, The Wall Street Journal’s magazine, SmartMoney, featured a cover showing two chickens hatching. The accompanying words said: “Double Your Nest Egg: Now Is the Time to Jump Into Cheap Stocks.” On that same day, the stock market began its worse drop since the Great Depression, sending the nation into a deep recession on September 29 of that year that took years to overcome.
Someone said that timing is everything. Yet we don’t know what will happen later today, let alone tomorrow. But there is Someone who knows. The psalmist said, “My times are in Your hand” (Psalm 31:15).
The psalmist also said, “I will bless the Lord at all times” (34:1). And he said, “Trust in Him at all times” (62:8). We don’t know what tomorrow holds, and we don’t have the wisdom to exercise perfect timing in all the events of life. But God is the great Timekeeper. We can bless Him and trust in Him at all times. When you don’t know what to do, wait on the Lord and watch for Him to work. His timing is impeccable.
When you accept His schedule, you know for certain you will receive His very best blessings. Charles F. Stanley
