When I prayer to God for something, I hope He will answer immediately. But God doesn’t work like that. I always want everything to happen yesterday. God works to His immaculate timing. I applied for a job and then was impatient when the reply was delayed. In fact what happened was that a more suitable job came up which I was able to accept and the first job was not the right one for me.
I wanted to know whether to choose one course in life or another one. As I waited and prayed, more facts came to light and with God’s help I was able to choose the correct path.
As I get older I can look back and see how God has kept me from disaster because of His perfect timing. If my life’s planning was left to me I would go headlong into disaster. I give thanks for God’s restraining hand and perfect timing.
