God’s Impeccable Timing

Have you ever found yourself wondering if your efforts are making any impact, only to realize later that God had been at work the whole time? You’re not alone.

Glory to God, who is able to do far beyond all that we could ask or imagine by his power at work within us.

– Ephesians 3:20 CEB

Bart Millard, lead vocalist of the contemporary Christian music band Mercy Me, speaking about their song “Imagine,” taking off after 9/11 said, “It was definitely the perfect storm. People were in a head space to where they responded to the song like that after what the nation had gone through, and it just took off on mainstream … If there was ever a right song in the right place, that was it.”

Just like Bart couldn’t have predicted how “Imagine” would resonate with people after 9/11, you may not see how God is using your efforts right now. But rest assured, He is orchestrating the perfect timing for your “right song.”

God is working behind the scenes on your behalf, and your “right song at the right time” is on its way.

You might be pouring your heart into something—maybe it’s a ministry, a relationship or a personal goal – and not seeing immediate results. It’s easy to get discouraged, but remember that God’s timing is impeccable.

Be encouraged today. God is working behind the scenes on your behalf, and your “right song at the right time” is on its way. Your season of reaping will come, and when it does, it will be abundantly clear that it was worth the wait.

So, keep pressing on. Continue to be authentic in your worship and open to God’s guidance. Your “right song” moment is coming, and when it does, it will not only bless you but also those around you in ways you can’t even imagine.

Today’s One Thing

Speak words of faith today. Say aloud: “I am a vessel through which God can work miracles. My efforts are not in vain, and I will see the fruits of my labor in God’s perfect timing.”
