Anchored in God’s Timing

Let’s be honest: life is a whirlwind of demands, distractions, blessings, ups and downs all intertwined together. Naturally, it’s easy to feel yourself drifting, wondering if your pace aligns with God’s. When life is too complex and busy, God has invited you to trust Him and rest. His rhythm is often different from our hurried steps.

He makes me lie down in green pastures. He leads me beside still waters.

– Psalm 23:2 ESV

As you consider Psalm 23:2, think about a river flowing gently through a meadow, unhurried, untroubled, guided by a course laid out by the Creator. You, too, were divinely created to have peace that settles in your soul. The timeline etched on your schedule isn’t always the one that matters. God’s timing is like that river – it flows just right, always reaching its destination at the perfect moment. This acceptance doesn’t mean inaction; instead, it’s active trust, even when it seems too fast and when it doesn’t seem fast enough.

God hasn’t forgotten you or your dreams; He’s preparing you and the path ahead in His impeccable timing.

Resting in God’s timing means surrendering your anxieties and plans and laying them down at His feet. In those moments when you feel like you’re running behind or things aren’t unfolding as planned, lean into the truth that God’s timing is perfect. Your life is not a race against the clock. Life’s season has its divine purpose. God, who “leads you beside still waters,” controls the calendar.

As you navigate life’s ebbs and flows, keep your heart anchored in this truth: God’s timing is perfect, and He is with you every step.
