I have been enthralled with the Olympics the past number of days. Ok… maybe even addicted. By far my favorite sports of the Olympic games are the ones that are timed. I love how the top winners many times come down to split seconds from each other. Many athletes train for years under “time trials” and it comes down to a single race in the Olympics waiting for a “perfect timing.”
Have you ever struggled with God’s timing? I mean I know His timing is perfect. I read it in His Word. But, at times our lack of patience and even lack of trust become very difficult as we wait on God. As doors of opportunity close just as fast as they open, we are left waiting on God. But, while we wait, our faith is tested through “time trials” and in the process, our faith is strengthened and prepared for God’s perfect timing to come.
Just when you feel all hope is lost and there is no way. God has a way and will always make a way. And when His perfect time comes, you may understand the pain, frustration and endurance it took to push through the “time trials” of life. Just like an Olympic athlete that has been waiting for that perfect time to manifest itself with Olympic gold.
Let me encourage you to keep waiting on God, while doing what you can do to push through the time trials of life and trust God to do what he said He will do all in His perfect timing. There will be gold waiting for you in heaven.
