Joshua 3:15 “And as they that bare the ark were come unto Jordan, and the feet of the priests that bare the ark were dipped in the brim of the water, (for Jordan overfloweth all his banks all the time of harvest,)”
Habakkuk 2:3 “But these things I plan won’t happen right away. Slowly, steadily, surely, the time approaches when the vision will be fulfilled. If it seems slow, do not despair, for these things will surely come to pass. Just be patient! They will not be overdue a single day!” (TLB)
The appointed time creates an atmosphere of conquest. Even God didn’t just send Jesus, he came when the timing was right.
Galatians 4:4 “But when the time arrived that was set by God the Father, God sent his Son, born among us of a woman, born under the conditions of the law so that he might redeem those of us who have been kidnapped by the law.”
Jesus came at the appropriate time. If God can do that in the case of Jesus, how come you want to operate outside divine timing?
Habakkuk 2:3 points us to some basic things about divine timing and we need to learn and master them.
1. Divine timing is orchestrated by God. You cannot calculate it by your head. You need divine prompting of the Holy Spirit to understand it. If you use physical situations, you’ll be way off the radar. In our focal scripture, the river was full, yet God told them to move. Always wait for his promptings.
2. Divine timing and patience are like siamese twins. They function together, you cannot have one without the other. Many people lose out at this point. Inability to wait is the bane of many believers. Remember he told David to wait till he hears the sound. We don’t know for how long he waited but he waited all the same.
3. Divine timing is part of eternity. This is a very interesting point. God lives in eternity but time is a subset of eternity. It implies that God has seen the end from the beginning so he knows when the time is ripe for every event in our lives. That’s why you can trust his judgement!
