The scripture for today, June 15 (6/15), is 1st Timothy 6:15 as found in the New Testament of the Bible:
“…which God will bring about in his own time ~ God, the blessed and only Ruler, the King of kings and Lord of lords!”
But it’s hard to know just when God’s time is. You may think it is when a certain opportunity arises, but something happens and it doesn’t turn out. So later another opportunity arises, but something happens there too and it still doesn’t turn out.
This verse can carry you from hope to hope from discouragement to discouragement. That is because you cannot see what God sees.
Your life is like a line drawn across a piece of paper, and you have to stay on that line. That line is all you see. But God looks down and can see the entire line all at once, and he can also see everything going on around you. Those other events may not be good for you to become involved in. There may never be a time when events around you will be good for you.
Rather than give up on God and decide he doesn’t really love you like he claims, amidst your tears of disappointment, stretch your spirit and praise him anyway. Acknowledge him. Then rest until his own time, whether it be soon or in eternity.
