Agreed that everything about God is perfect, but His timing is simply impeccable.  He is never too early.  He is never too late.  He is always just on time.  A few weeks ago, as we were coming home from a long day of praying for people in the market, we found ourselves in a traffic jam. 

Seeing the traffic jam, I was immediately reminded of a situation exactly one year earlier when we had been stuck in traffic for over 3 hours.  This is the festive season (Durga Puja, in particular), and due to various community prayers, the roads get blocked.  And it appeared that that was what was happening on this particular day, and unfortunately the jam started much further back on the road than it had the previous year.  I felt my heart sink at the thought of being stuck in traffic for 3 hours!

Just then, one of the guys we were giving a ride to said,  ”There is a cut in the road, right up there.  We can take a different route.”  We were able to take that cut in the road and a different route and arrived home without much delay.  Praise God!

If the traffic jam had not started where it did, we would have passed the cut and there wasn’t another cut for miles.  We would not have been able to take an alternate route and would have been stuck in traffic for hours.  But God orchestrated everything perfectly.

Sometimes we want God to work in a certain way…and according to a certain timetable.  We get frustrated when things don’t happen when we want them to happen.  But we have to remember that God’s timing is the best timing.  Only He knows all that has happened in the past and all that is going to happen in the future.  Thus, only He truly knows when is the perfect timing for something to happen.

Perhaps you are working towards a goal, but things keep getting delayed.  Do not fret.  Put your timeline in His hands.  He will make all things beautiful in His time.  See Ecclesiastes 3:11.
