Kairos Advent Devotional 2010 17th Dec
17 December 2010
If you are anything like me, you often have a timescale for when things need to happen, and all things have to fit into the timescale you set.
This passage tells us, how God recognises our circumstances, and at his time, the right time, the appointed time by him, things happen.
God enables us to live out of freedom, to live as an heir, to live as his adopted child, and this is not out of anything we have done, but purely, and only out of his grace and love for us.
The challenge therefore, for us, is two-fold: firstly to live in the existence that God wants us to live in, as his child, an heir. But secondly, to know that all things happen by his appointed timing, as he has all our best interests at heart, and therefore as we journey through life with God, we appreciate the appointed time he sets for all aspects of our life. Trusting God is right at the centre of our relationship with him, and living in his timings.
Lord, help me to trust you more. To know your timing is perfect, and to know you have my interests at your heart.
