you ever thought that God works on the
'Just In Time' principle, leaving every
thing till the last minute? We've all
heard of, or maybe experienced, events
whereby the solution to a problem arrives
at he last minute; an example of this
is someone not knowing where the next
meal is to come from, then they find a
box of groceries on their doorstep. You
can probably think of some examples. Take
a moment to write them down.
thought that from God's point of view
it may not be "Just In Time" but at "Just
the Right Time." We all tend to become
anxious and want to know what is going
to happen and where we are going.
Abraham and Sarah (Genesis 11- 25). God
had promised them an heir, yet they became
anxious and look what happened (Genesis
15:12 - 16:6); At "Just the Right Time,"
however, Isaac was born (Genesis 18:1-14).
on to consider Joseph (Genesis 37- 50),
sold into slavery, imprisoned and forgotten
yet at "Just the Right Time" he is placed
in charge of the grain distribution.
we move forward many years to the life
of Jesus on earth at "Just the Right Time"
you think of any others in the Bible who
of being at "Just the Right Time"? You
might say they all were.
In the life of Jesus there are also people
with chronic illness or pain that He met
at "Just the Right Time." Take for instance
the woman who had suffered from bleeding
for many years (Luke 8:43-48), or the
daughter of Jairus (Luke 8:49-56). Again
another challenge for you to find more
people Jesus met at "Just the Right Time."
So if God has been working at "Just the
Right Time" in the lives of people in
the Bible and in the lives of many people
down through the ages, then why not in
your life and mine. Daily we need to put
our faith and trust in God knowing that
He works at "Just the Right Time" to supply
our needsand in some cases our desires
you think of times in your own life whereby
God supplied your need at "Just the Right
Time"? Take heart. He knew your need then;
He knows your need today! God knows your
heartache and your pain, yet as He told
Paul (2 Corinthians 12:9) His grace is
sufficient for each day. He may not choose
to heal you, but He has not forgotten
to think of it maybe I'm the one working
in "Just In Time" mode while God is working
in "Just the Right Time" mode.
