When Time Demands Are Great

When Time Demands Are Great

Trust in the Lord and your way will be made clear. Frustration comes when things aren’t progressing according to our plans. But our timetable isn’t the one which guides the flow of our lives. Relax!
We can be fretful through our day or we can have fun – either way our Father will accomplish his purpose for us. Don’t fret just because He won’t align Himself with your timing!

During the waiting process, during the frustrations caused by your own drivenness, God is at work, accomplishing in you and in your circumstances all that needs to be done. So relax. Don’t worry. He knows and understands your schedule and your commitments, but He has his own agenda. Will you submit yours to Him?

God will accomplish what needs to be done in His way and according to His timing. Rest in Him. Your responsibility is not to reach your goal, but to be a willing vessel in His hand. Your goal is to be one of trusting in Him and waiting patiently.

Relax. Your Father is not limited by time demands. So savor every moment of each day. Urgent needs will be with you always. Don’t miss the joy of these days by self-imposed demands. Your loving Father make no demands, but gently leads you to accomplish the things He has purposed for you to do.

On His last night in the world, Jesus said to His Father, “I have glorified you on the earth. I have accomplished what you gave me to do.” Yet He never rushed or became stressed by His schedule even once.

Your works have been prepared in advance (Ephesians 2:10). It’s really not even up to you to accomplish them. In reality, He has already performed all our works for us. (See Isaiah 26:12) Our role is to rest in Him and act according to His guidance and empowerment, leaving the results entirely up to Him.
