God is never late

God is never late

 

Hab 2:3

3 For the revelation awaits an appointed time;

it speaks of the end

and will not prove false.

Though it linger, wait for it;

it will certainly come and will not delay.   

  • God is always on time.

 

  1. Some have God on their personal timetable. If he doesn’t come through when they think He needs to, they assume something must be wrong somewhere.
  2. God is not bound by our concepts of time.3 There is a time for everything,
  3. and a season for every activity under heaven:
  4. Eccl 3:1
  5. God’s time is the best time and the right time.
  6. Personal frustration about national ministry.Gal 6:9-10
  7. 9 Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up.
  8.  
  • Proper time. Means: “set time.” “Season”

 

  1. Seasons have fixed time, but the weather does not always follow the set time.
  2. Your duty during the waiting season is to “not become weary in doing good.
  3. He did NOT say, “Don’t stop doing good.” It’s about being “weary.”
  4. “Weary” means to “fail in heart.” You may go through the motions, but your heart is not in obeying God.
      1. Go to church, but heart is not in it.
      2. Volunteer
      3. Go to work
      4. Still married

2 Pet 3:9

9          The Lord is not slow in keeping his promise, as some understand slowness. He is patient with you, not wanting anyone to perish, but everyone to come to repentance.

  • Understand that there is an appointed time and due season.

 

  1. Where the promises of God are concerned, it’s not a matter of “if” He’s going to come through, it’s only a matter of “When”.
  2. Actually, God is waiting on you.
      1. Waiting for you to rejoice;
      2. waiting for you to change;
      3. waiting for you to have hope. 4 When he heard this, Jesus said, “This sickness will not end in death. No, it is for God’s glory so that God’s Son may be glorified through it.” 5 Jesus loved Martha and her sister and Lazarus. 6 Yet when he heard that Lazarus was sick, he stayed where he was two more days.
      4. John 11:4-6
      5.             C. Story of ordaining deacons too early.
  • Story of Lazarus.
      1. Must declare the end from the beginning. “This sickness willl not end it death.”
      2. “God is coming through. God will not delay. I will reap at the proper time. My faith will be rewarded.”
      3. God’s perfect timing is meant to bring about His greater glory.
      4. God loves us even when it appears bad things are happening to us.Acts 3:5
      5. 5          So the man gave them his attention, expecting to get something from them.
      6.  
  • Expect the Answer. Called hope.      20        I eagerly expect and hope that I will in no way be ashamed, but will have sufficient courage so that now as always Christ will be exalted in my body, whether by life or by death.
