A Minute Message


                            Rev. Matthew James


Nothing Father God does is random. Everything He does is deliberate. I have a diary full of appointments and meetings, it’s there to help me remember and make sure I get things done in the right order. Father God has set times for things in our lives. The problems come when we start to rush God’s timing, and we all do it. Even Abraham, when he received an amazing promise from God that he would have a son. He tried to force things along because he was getting older and so was his wife Sarah. But we see in Genesis 21 v 2 “For Sarah conceived and bore Abraham a son in his old age, at the SET time of which God had spoken to him.

The Psalmist writes “Don’t be impatient for the Lord to act! Keep travelling His path and in due season He will honour you with every blessing” (Psalm 37 v 4 TLB). Father God has a plan for your life, He has made you promises which He will keep. Just because it has not happened yet does not mean Father God has changed His mind. While you are waiting He is working.

Paul writes in Romans 8 v 28 “We know all things work together, according to His purpose”. We need to ask Father God about His plans for our lives, he has one for each and every one of us. When you and I understand His plan and purpose we won’t allow anything to get in the way. That even includes hurry and worry. Father God says in Isaiah 46 v 10 (NIV) “I make known the end from the beginning”. Let’s begin today to thank Father God for what He has already done and for what He is about to do, because HE will not let us down, HIS promises are steadfast and sure.
